    I dont have a microsd cardreader on my computer. Is it possible to use diskwriter with my android phone connected to the pc to write games to the microsd?

    Probably if you have a Android phone that is still capable of USB mass storage instead of the newer MTP protocol. If it still does USB mass storage it is basically nothing more then a card reader.

    I think it's possible but keep in mind that you still need to format the micro sd card for diskwriter so if you don't have already you need one card just for diskwriter.

    The disk writer tool can be picky about what it is writing to. I use a windows tablet that has a built in micro sd slot. Every time I tried to write to it it gave me errors and all of my games would lock up. Eventually I switched to a micro sd usb adapter and all of my problems went away.

    I think if you have too many links in the chain it may cause issues.

    Managed to get it to work by formatting the microsd in my phone first then plug it into the pc.

    I added 3 games to my SanDisk Class 10 MicroSD. THe problem is I cant switch games. If i take out the MicroSD and press the blue button it might sometimes (not always) switch between 2 games, the third one doesnt even show up. Any idea how to fix this?

    maybe by going through your phone to put roms the phone added other files/folders thats messing it up.

    Why not spend a dollar or 2 on a Micro SD Reader?

    Can you not drag and drop on an SD for Sky3DS? Sounds horrible.

    Yeah, I think for this to work the Sky team would have to release an Android version of their Diskwriter software. I don't think there are any real ways to emulate a windows environment in Android. I could be mistaken but I doubt it.
