Re: putting files on a SD-card.
by Kees Bakker / April 8, 2009 9:13 PM PDT

Put the card in the (internal or external) card reader of your PC. If it's formatted, it will get a drive letter. Then use your favorite file manager (like My Computer or Windows Explorer) to copy the files, like you copy files on your hard disk or to a USB-stick or floppy.

Most are formatted as you buy them. Some aren't. What does the box say?

Go into disk management and see what it says. It's the place to format also.

changing music files to aac
by jmcclayborn / April 1, 2010 12:10 AM PDT

My kids all have mp3 players and psp's. When I tried to put the mp3 format onto the DSi, it wouldn't recognize it. It needs mp4 or aac. What I ended up doing was going online and downloading a free converter program. Some of them don't work properly, but if you download the free version of "Switch Audio File Converter", it will allow you to convert other versions (i.e. mp3) to one that will work on the DSi. First thing, you can go on Limewire (free) and download the songs that you want to put on the DSi. Almost all songs on Limewire are mp3 versions. You can then take those mp3 versions and convert them to aac or mp4 through Switch Audio File Converter. When I convert my files to aac, it doesn't work on the DSi. I have to convert the files to m4a version. This has worked without any problem and all the songs that I put on the SD card work perfectly.

You need an SD drive in a PC to do that, silly.

If you do not have a PC, get yourself one, at an electronics devices liquidation depot for next to nothing.

Make sure you have a decent O.S. for it so, that it can recognize the compact card reader drives. I should know about all this since, I have one of those units that have 4 different slots for 4 different types of SD cards. Plus 1 more USB port, that I currently use for both my wirelessly connected keyboard and mouse. So, that way, I found a way to make the unit permanently recognized and relevant to my everyday use of my PC. Wink

Putting Music On A DSi
by xxmike123xx / June 1, 2010 6:46 AM PDT

The DSi I believe is only compatible up to 2gb SD cards, but you may be able to use it. You put it in your computer select the music you wnat and copy and paste it to the SD card.
