I don't know if this is normal, but I can't use it on more than 1 computer. This is what happens:
Well I have my EZ Flash 3 completely working fine with 1 computer, basically I connected it to a computer and uploaded all my roms and started happily playing with the cart. Then I started downloading some games on another computer, my second computer because of convienience, and so I plugged my EZ Writer into the second computer and plug in my EZ Flash 3, but the computer sees it but basically says that it isn't formatted. I plugged the EZ Flash 3 back into my 1st computer and everything works fine on this computer, but not my second computer. So I plugged it back into the second computer and formatted the cart, and loaded up the games into the cart. Working fine for the second computer now, everything is detected. I plug it into my first computer and nothing is recognized, I get a popup asking to format the cart.
Am I doing something wrong here or is the EZ Flash 3 locked to a single computer? If it is, is there any way to bypass that?

i use EZ3 on diffrent PCs too
and not this problem
1> try unplug/replug with the manager still open (replug cart and cradle)
2> make sure not using a USB hub/extension (needs direct 2.0 i think)
2> try a diffrent USB if its got one
3> make sure drivers are properly installed for both (same manager on both)
4> wish yourself best of luck
I semi-ran into this too, as only one of my computers can seemingly run my EZ3. Are the EZManager's updates or whatever it downloads installed on BOTH computers? That can make a major difference on how the cart loads on a computer I've learned.

It should run fine on multiple computers, as long as you plug the EZ-Writer directly on a USB Port on the PC (No HUB), and use the exact same EZ-Manager on both PCs. I have A PC and had a Laptop (which died only recently) but it worked fine on both computers. Best thing to do is to download 1 pakage, and then use your private network or a CD-RW to install the same EZ-Manager package on the 2nd PC.
