    System: N3DS 10.3.0-28U
    Cart: DSTWO+
    Emulators Tried: TEMPGBA, CATSFC, DSTWO GBA, SNES Emulator

    When trying to run any of the above emulators on the N3DS they either freeze on launch or freeze during gameplay. I have configured the MicroSD properly.
    Can anyone help out?

    Gambia, The
    It looks like you didn't setted up your sd card properly. It should work. do it again

    even though you can use emulators on the dstwo, i recommend (to downgrade your 3ds to 9.2 and) using a 3ds homebrew emulator.

    Make sure you don't have a fake microSD. Download h2testw, run the read and write check, don't cancel it until it is finished.

    Bummer....I've played earthbound completely, super Mario world and currently secret of mana with no freezing at all.

    Check the msd- is it a good brand purchased from Best Buy? (I. E. Known good suppliers)

    Also no freezing with gpsp or any of the retro arch emus.

    where the potential goes to zero
    Could the problem be the dstwo+ itself?

    I just got one a few weeks ago and it is much flakier than my old DSTWO. It sometimes black screens with "An error has occurred...." Other times it boots fine. Usually, after waiting a few minutes it boots fine. If I immediately try again, it always black screens.

    I have tested it on DSi, DSi XL, and 3DS. At first, I suspected the SD card, but I've tried lots and they all work fine in anything but DSTWO+.

    I decided to use my DS for emulators cause this thing constantly freezes. Sucks cause I wanted to use the bigger screen.

    So your DSTWO+ works fine in original DS but not 3DS?

    If you want a bigger screen just get a DSi XL. They're cheap. For GB(A) stuff I found this screen too big and mostly use a DSi. (DSi is even cheaper.)

    Now there are loads of homebrew emulators on the 3DS. (Free.) mGBA, Gameyob(GB/GBC), blargsnes are probably the ones you want. If you're still on 10.3, homebrew is worth a try.

    10.3?

    Dude. Ditch the DSTWO, downgrade to 9.2, and use RetroArch. GPSP is damn near perfect on N3DS, the SNES Emus are great, and you can even emulate a good amount of PS1 titles, too!

    he don't have to downgrade
    RetroArch homebrew is very good on N3DS
    and he said he have N3DS , i don't know why he is using DStwo+.

    Actually, to get fullspeed GBA, SNES With Audio, and PS1, he'll need to, since those enhancements require ARM9.
