    I just recieved my Blue button Sky3ds card, but I cannot get the disk writer to work correctly with Windows 7?
    Everytime I try to start the stand alone DiskWriter program in either latest V1.05 or previous versions (In Run as Administrator mode) so I can transfer games to my micro SD card, I get the same error "Unhandled exception has occured in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click quit, the application will close immediately." Once I insert the microSD card into either the USB port or SD card slot, the error comes up immediately and will not go away, even when I click continue multiple times...Also the DiskWriter program does not show the card inserted in any drive, even though Windows shows the microSD card installed ready to go...But this may not be the issue as much as the "Unhandled Exception Error"?

    Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated!!! I have tried updating and re-installing Microsoft.NET Framework with no luck. Are there any other programs that card transfer working 3ds back-ups to MicroSD cards that will work with SKYDS?

    Thanks a million!

    Try safe mode or run windows 7/8 in a virtual box.

    After you click the "quit" button, the micro sd size show in the window explorer got any space used up if is a blank micro sd?

    If yes, just do a reformat n try again.

    Have you tried to run the program on compatibility mode? Right click, Properties, Compatibility, tick Run this in compatibility mode for:, choose Windows 7 SP1, and then press OK.

    Hey!

    I am late to this post--But I have yet to see a fix for this (anywhere!).

    I ran into the same exact problem and fixed it.

    Go into you micro SD card--WITHOUT DISKWRITER OPERATING. Just access micro SD as if you were normally looking through it. I found a copy of diskwriter (that was not deleted when I reformated, for whatever reason, I do not know). Delete this file so that there is nothing on your micro SD card.

    I then redownloaded diskwriter and the template. Went through the whole "reformat," write template, etc. all over again. Then everything worked.

    My micro SD card is a Sansdisk pixtor 32gb UHS 1.

    Also, because I was running into this, make sure you don't put your downloaded files from Sky3DS into the SD Card!

    - Format MicroSD Card (they tell you to access through a USB and not an SD)
    - Create a Sky3DS Folder to hold your downloads, make sure this folder is on your Computer and not the SD Card you just Formatted!
    - Run DiskWriter in Administrator Mode

    Everything should work out just fine from there! Best of luck!

    I had this issue, the problem was... the pc adaptor or the pc I was using.
    Tested on another one with an usb adapter and everything was working perfectly
