    So I've been using an MT Card for a while and replaced it with a Gateway card today. Animal Crossing: New Leaf worked just fine on the MT Card, but when I try to load it on the Gateway card (w/ 2.4b), the screen just goes black and I have to reset the 3DS.

    Any ideas? I've not had any problems with other games.

    Yes, and that worked fine on the MT card.

    I'll try it untrimmed later today and let you know. Thanks.

    Whilst trimmed will "work" you effectivly loose your save by default, as soon as you write a new rom to the Sd you will pretty much loose your save and there is no way to retrieve it......you do not trim Card2 games (Pokemon,animal crossing and some eshop/vc games)

    np, just remember not to trim card2 games in future....even if they do seem to "work" the save will be getting wrote to a random offset (probably not so much random but relative to where it would of been saved if the rom was untrimmed)of the SD card potentially overwriting other data and/or being overwrote when you copy anything else to the card at a later date
