My 3ds when I insert a card it won't read and when I take it out it makes a grinding noise HELP!!
Did you ever open up the system?
I want to ask you first but I opened it up not so long ago when I had the problem.
Probably game card slot or cable problem.
what do you mean?
You might have damaged the game card slot or the cable that is connecting the card slot to the main board, or maybe the game card slot is dirty.
or maybe the card? cuz I cleaned them like A LOT of times.
Check another game, but most likely it is the game card slot/ the cable connecting to the board since you mention it is making sound, so it is a hardware problem.
I tried them too.
Well if you don't want to fix it , then just put CFW on the unit if you haven't already.
Is there any way to fix it? Any 3ds fixers?

I also have CFW
Probably just order replacement card reader slot for the specific model you have. Since you open it before already, why don't you check the connection again.
I do it myself I might break something.
What model you have?
Well on the 2DS you gonna have to solder unless you can find a shop or someone to do for you, to be honest, it would probably cost more than the system itself since you have a 2ds.
Fold up a small piece of paper to force the cart contacts into better connection with the slot. Works on many flashcarts that have this sort of problem. That grinding noise though... I think you reassembled the system wrong somehow, Id take it back apart and try to get it back together properly before anything else.
I did not take it COMPLETELY apart I left the mother bord in.
Well if the system works fine and you have CFW, just leave the game card slot alone.
