I try and put in an sd card on my dsi, but it just says it can't read it. Any tips on fixing this, please as I want to homebrew my DSi.

Checklist:
  • SD formatted FAT32 (or FAT16 for non-HC SDs with max 2GB)?
    • Use guiformat on modern Windows for formatting 64GB or larger (SDXC).
    • Any other operating system than modern Windows should support formatting to FAT32, 32KB cluster size out of the box.
  • SD verified with h2testw, F3 or F3X?
  • Contacts clean:
    • On SD?
    • On SD reader?
  • Tried different SDs?
    • Micro-SD in adapters can cause trouble even if working flawlessly on PC
    • Full-sized SD is better. At least try different adapters for µSDs
If everything fails (reader bad) get a new reader. The repair is not very hard. Refer to ifixit for instructions

Good luck and have fun!
