    Hello - I have a Ncard 8G which is causing problems.

    I can load the N Card menu fine. However if i connect the DS to my PC it takes about 2 mins to show up in windows explorer but i can't access it or write any data to it.

    I tried to do a full format using UP + L + R + SEL + START + A + B

    only to get this message

    test sram...
    sram data oro16=5B9F
    Could not found SRAM.SAV!

    I can complete a quick format but no matter what i do i can't gain access to the card through my PC.

    To explain how i got here my kids were messing around with it and messed it up.

    Any help would be great.

    NCards have problems with SRAM. If your card is new, its a factory/firmware defect and you need a new one. If its old, you did something wrong.

    Tried the card in two computers and two DS's, im using Vista Home and i've used a laptop running on XP home but nothing worked.

    It's new card for me and it worked for a short time and i have cleaned the card with a rubber.

    Vista needs an update to work with the NCards.
    Lemme grab the link.

    EDIT: its update number KB940199 that needs to be installed on vista. Just search microsoft.com for the update.
