    I have been updating my 3DS today and the update has lasted for most likely over an hour now, and it doesn't seem to be slowing down. Is this normal? A little while back, I was upgrading to a larger SD card and accidentally deleted a few things off the SD card. Could that have an effect on this somehow?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Is it actually updating or just downloading the update? If the latter, could just be a slow/busy server.

    I reset the 3DS and things seem to be working better now. Must have just been downloading the update.
