Hello.
About three years ago, I bought a Gameshark DS (Yes, they do exist) to backup my games' save data. I have since upgraded from XP to 7, but I cannot get the device to work. What do I need to do? Compatibility mode? Run As Administrator?? Both??? Will virtualbox work? Must I downgrade to WinXP?

Does it have anything to do with unsigned drivers? because i can get around those with windows 7 test mode.
