    On my 3ds I had no problems but on my 2DS the CIA's are taking forever to install or not installing at all.

    in bigbluemenu It takes hours to install any file over 1GB I just power off its rediculous.

    in fbi the cias are normal speed to install but they jam early on, like 5% to 15%; forcing me to hard reset.

    I can transfer the cias on-to the sd card from my pc in normal speeds.

    does this mean my sd card is messed up?

    Sounds like a faulty SD card.

    If it's 1MB/s then it's normal.

    how would I go on about fixing the sd card, I did a chekdisk on it, removed some bad blocks but didnt fix it. I guess I have to format it and do everything over?

    the fbi speed is fine but it jams and I have to do a hard reset. big blue menu works but its snail speed.

    Maybe it's fake? Run one of those programs that check them.

    Hours for a single GB isn't normal.

    Or get a new one.

    BBM/Devmenu installing CIA is just about 1MB/s.
    That's why I have said that it's normal.

    Dunno FBI issue.
    Are you using 1.4.15 or FBI injection's 1.3.8?

    I think I started noticing a problem when I unlinked my sysnand from my emunand, I put in the sd card and the 2ds didnt recognize it, but it did after a few tries.

    Tried 1.4.15, for example starfox 64 cia, it gets to 19% very quickly, then its super snail mode afterwards.

    Oh well, I guess I can wait 8 hours for a game.

    I've never heard of NCIX nor a store by that name regardless if you want to know for sure if it's fake (which it probably is) format it using sdformatter 4 with format type full erase and size adjustment on then run the card through h2testw and do a write+verify test and post a screenshot the log.
