    I have read as many threads,post and articles I could find on how to fix this and I can't do it. I have a 32gb mirco sd card and a 128gb mirco sd card and i have downloaded and redownloaded the diskwriter 2.02 so many times and I have gotten as far as as getting the extracted file onto my sd card but no matter whether I run it as an applicator or not an error always comes up. What can i do , i even made sure the 32gb was on fat32 it just wont work .

    Are you putting Diskwriter on your SD?
    Don't do that - run it from your pc... diskwriter will need to format the sd to it's own standard - it won't be able to do that if the exe is on the card.

    so run it on my pc and it worked , I formatted it and put the template on but where and how do I get 3ds games .My sky3ds is still being shipped to me so I can't use the rom station because you need a serial number to use it.

    It's against this sites rules to give links for roms, but it shouldn't be too hard to find them using google... search things like "iso" and "3ds" and go with the top link ;)
