    When I move the D-Pad up and to the left at the same time, it squeaks with a really annoying sound. Is this normal? It's new ,so maybe I just need to break it in or something?

    Mine doesn't squeak and I honestly haven't used it much except for a few rounds of SSF4. You should have 30 days to return your 3ds, if after a week or two it doesn't seem to improve I'd suggest taking it back.

    sometimes my dpad squeaks, sometimes it doesn't. probably just needs to be worn in.

    Standard clicks for me as well, no squeeky on any D-Pad movement, or the ABXYLR buttons.

    At first my d-pad was squeaky, but now it's not.
    Actually if anything is squeaking, it's my thumb rubbing against the glossy surface.

    My D-Pad squeaks after playing some SSF4 (I play with the middle of my thumb not the tip). I just hope it gets worn in.

    Do any of you know if I can just replace it in the store I bought it if it's defective? Or is it through Nintendo?
    I think I'll wait a week to see if my D-Pad turns out to be good.

    Edit: I bought it at K-Mart and no, no warranty.

    Mine creaks more than it sounds like squeaking. I figure it just needs to be worked in. My 360 controller analog used to squeak but a few months of blops and reach later it quit squeaking.

    For me is after playing some SSF4... if I play with the tip of my thumb (which I don't) I THINK that I won't get the squeaky noise. I just like doing combos which take many inputs and require some banging on the D-Pad.

    Just to let you all know, it's not creaking as much anymore. I guess it did just need to be broken in. [​IMG]
