    I recently handed over $120 which took me forever to save up and now, it's not working right!
    I bought the kit that came with the SuperKey, SuperCard MiniSD, MiniSD Adapter, SD Reader, and MiniSD Card. Everything was going fine, I put the Adapter/MiniSD Card into the Reader, ran the software, patched the necessary files, saved them on the MiniSD Card. Then I took out the MiniSD Card, and, wouldn't you know it, it won't FIT IN THE SUPERCARD! I definately put it in according to picture examples. Just for the heck of it, I tried putting it in backwards too. When I put it in the 'right way', it springs up like ejecting a DS cart, and pops out. I even tried TAPING it down so it wouldn't come out. I still get the same result on my DS: No SD Card inserted. What am I doing wrong, or have I been ripped off!? Please tell me!

    Theres only one way to insert it. Either there is a foreign object blocking the spring mechanism inside the SC or your card is abnormally shaped, which almost never happens.

    Umm... I think you need a MicroSD card, not a Mini.

    You said you got an adapter.... Try putting it in the adapter and then put it into the SC. Idk if it will work, but just trying to help.

    for a long time there have been FAKE supercards on the market.... I would compare yours to the legit supercards on the official site just to be sure
