Driver installation was otherwise painless provided you have a 32 bit OS.
Good for moving Pokemon over from emulators to actual cartridges and then to generation VII (Sun and Moon)
It's quite a procedure but this device is the centerpeice. These Pokemon make quite a journey.
Emulator of Generation V game -> .sav file -> upload to physical cartidge of matching game via with device -> poke transporter -> pokemon bank -> Sun/Moon
Also great for backing up saves since for some reason many DS games can only have 1 save which is very annoying in 2017.
Price: It seemed REALLY pricey for something really fragile and somewhat "simple". Either way, it was worth the buy! 4/5
Shipping: Shipped right on time, and shipped rather quickly. Would buy from this seller again! 5/5
Product: Reading some reviews here, I took EXTRA care for it and packed it back in its original packaging after every use. If you are going to use this, follow instructions on how to install the drivers (http://www.pokedit.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=95&t=4308) and make sure you pay extra attention to every little detail, or else you might mess up everything. After inserting the cartridge, carefully insert the USB into the port. After backing up, take it out carefully as well. Aside from the need of crucial handling, the choices it provides make up for it. 5/5
Performance: Back up and download; simple as that. Backing up will create a raw .SAV file, where you have endless options on what to do with it. For example, when backing up Pokemon, you can create your own custom Pokemon on a generator and download it back onto the cartridge. You can convert it into many different extensions i.e. uploading it a public cloud service. You may even use the raw save file to play it on your computer from a ROM! This is what makes this thing really fantastic! 5/5 for sure!
Other: The installation process is rather tedious, and if you aren't tech savvy, it'll become a hassle in order to use this adapter. 4/5
Sometimes, the USB won't be recognized at times, and I had to plug/unplug it several times in order to get it to work. 3/5
At times, when trying to open the software, it doesn't while the device is plugged in. When ejected, it opens. Frustrating... It takes a while for it to work, so be patient if this ever happens to you. 3/5
When downloading, it says it has successfully transfered the data, yet it doesn't. This can be solved by ejecting and plugging it back in and then doing the whole process again. 4/5
Aside from the downsides, I give this product 5 stars.
Caveat: apparently, not all Nintendo DS cartridges fit in properly. Specifically, my Gen IV Pokemon Platinum cartridge does not fit in properly. The software does not recognize the game and freezes up, corrupting save data. Fortunately from Gen IV onwards, a backup save is kept, so no progress is lost.
Solution: insert the DS cartridge firmly into the Adapter, then GENTLY press upwards on the cartridge from the bottom of the cartridge. This allows the cartridge to make proper physical contact with the NDS Adapter interface. Carefully insert the NDS Adapter into the computer USB port, and do backups/uploads as usual with one hand, while continually keeping a gentle upwards pressure on the DS cartridge with the other hand.
This solution obviously works best on a laptop with USB ports on the side; it would probably be incredibly awkward or a two-person job on a regular desktop computer. Another review suggested layering small bits of tape on top of the DS cartridge so that it makes proper contact; my method is quicker, although more awkward. For desktop PC users, the tape might be the only real option if you run into this problem.
Deducted 1 star because of this problem, otherwise works as advertised.
