    @Toddler Naruto - Right now I have five retail digital download games... plus a lot of Virtual Console games, some eShop-only games, quite a few apps & demos, and like a crap-ton of photos from Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Tomodachi Life...

    ... And so far I've used no more than 56K blocks out of my total ~256K blocks (I have a 32GB SD card).

    Ultimately it depends on how many games you decide to buy on the eShop and their MB/block size, but I think a 16GB card (~128K blocks I believe) should be fine.

    Default Computer Issue

    Not sure if this is the right thread or place but I think this goes here.

    I'm having some weird computer problems (I have Windows 8) by the way, and all of it started when my mouse (USB mouse), as well as my built in mouse Keyboard (Laptop) didn't work completely. It's behavior is very erratic.

    I can't click on some things, but I can click on other things, I keep clicking something and nothing happens, so this isn't a USB mouse problem because it affects the built in mouse stuff from the Laptop Keyboard.

    I checked things as best as I can, by trying to delete some unwanted suspicious programs, then my laptop won't even boot up. I will get to the log in, put in the password, it will load and then it will be pitch black with the mouse cursor, and nothing will load.

    However Safe Mode with Networking works fine, just disabling some features, the problem is, I'm still encountering mouse issues even in Safe Mode. Such as scanning my computer for viruses, and yet it won't let me take any sort of action.

    I don't want to stay in safe mode with networking forever, in fear something I try to do will even screw that up.

    Is there anyone who knows exactly what's going on with my computer and the best way to fix it, without resorting to a Windows Refresh. Before anyone asks, the system restore point is a no-go, because I don't have one, or at least a reliable one, besides I think I tried to that.

    There must be something wrong with disk itself, be it a virus, or a virus ate some "meat" off my computer and it's dangling by a thread, but I really want to resolve this as soon as possible. Or maybe some sort of driver corruption of some kind.

    Perhaps if I could resolve the mouse issues, perhaps everything can go from there.

    I think I have a problem.
    Recently, I finally got a 3dsXl, but today as I was changing games something happened. Now I have to apply a little more pressure to get a game in and the game cartridge tilts to the side. Luckily, I have warranty up to 6 months. But I would still lose the digital games I downloaded (some indie games). I don't know what to do.

    Default My Used 160GB Slim PS3 Won't Play Games

    My Used 160GB Slim PS3 is refusing to play any of my physical PS3 game discs.

    I think it's the bluray drive/laser, but I'm not 100% sure. Anyways, I was hoping someone here could help me solve the issue please?

    Preferably without having to spend much money, I'll be broke until July 26th at least.

    Anyone can help me? I found no answers on the Internet. On my girlfriend's XP PC it works great. Is it the fact that I have Windows 7?

    So I'm trying to access File Explorer on Windows 8. Every time I try to access, screen flashes blue then goes back; it won't let me access the Explorer. Went into Safe mode and did a virus scan, which resolved some cookies. I go back to normal mode, but I'm still unable to access File Explorer. It opens perfectly fine in Safe Mode, however.

    When I do manage to access File Explorer, I try selecting an item. Right clicking on the selected item afterwards for a menu closes the explorer instead of giving me the menu options.

    Update: Had some technicians look at it, and they had to refresh the operating system. I hope it works.

    Update: I had my friend look at my 160GB Slim PS3 again, and apparently it's either the Blu-Ray drive itself that's malfunctioning, which will cost me $80 New on eBay, or it's the HDD, in which case I'm hoping just formatting it and re-installing the PS3 OS will fix the problem.

    If it is the HDD and formatting/reinstalling doesn't work, I have my eyes set on a 500GB Western Digital for only $50 New on Amazon.

    I just hope they're not both malfunctioning, I can't afford to spend $130 all at once.

    For the past week, my 3DS has refused to connect to my wi-fi, and when it does connect, it only stays online for about ten minutes before it disconnects again. I've tried everything the Nintendo website told me and nothing seems to be working.

    I want to get rid of iStartSurf but nothing seems to work :/ I went to the control panel to see if there was a program that I could uninstall, but there was none. I tried resetting Goggle Chrome and everything but it just wouldn't leave my computer. I did a virus scan and deleted anything suspicious, but iStartSurf is still appearing as the homepage. How can I get rid of it :/

    So I have a new problem (not that the old one was solved):
    My 3DS is second hand, and the seller never gave me a regestration code for the system. I can't reach the seller because I deleted his info from my phone after the deal. My question is: Can I register my 3DS with a different unregistered code for a 3DS? or does it have to have been bought with the system?

    If you're still having trouble, I would recommend checking out this page right here. Although I don't have experience with iStartSurf specifically, I've used this page to help me with some other computer problems before and it worked perfectly. Plus from what I can tell these directions don't require you to download additional applications to get it to work, which based on a previous experience I had I consider this a plus in my book.

    If you mean registration through Club Nintendo, how's the serial code sticker on the back cover of the system? If it's still in tact, you may still be able to use that code to register your 3DS. (It's possible to use it on the North American version of CN, anyway.) And of course, since it's secondhand, keep in mind that the previous owner may have already registered the 3DS, and once a Nintendo console has been registered once it can't be registered again.

    Default Help with image processing

    I've got Python 3.4, and I'm trying to use this module (http://www.cs.ucsb.edu/~pconrad/cs8/09M/code/MillerRanumCode_v3.0/cImage.py) to turn a normally colored image into one with four colors, like Obama's campaign posters in 2008. I got three colors, but not four. Does anyone know how I would go about doing four different colors? I'm a greenhorn when it comes to Python, just to let you all know.
