    Hi

    For some reason Gateway 2.0B1 is not detecting the red card. While the card works fine with 1.2 and 2.0B2 release I dont understand why this is happening.

    Let's take it from the top. If you haven't done this yet, I suggest you do. Do each step only if the previous step didn't fix your problem:

    - Remove the red card, and blow in the slot just to make sure there's no debris in there (just to rule out something so simple)
    - Remove the SD card after powering off your 3DS and re-insert it before powering it on. Blow in this port while it's out
    - Delete and re-add the launcher.dat from the big SD
    - Re-install the exploit with the blue card
    - Quick-format your micro SD and big SD, and start from the beginning
    - Full-format your micro SD and big SD and try again

    But it works with 1.2 or 2.0b2 without doing all that.

    Does this have something to do with the fact that emunand was created with 2.0b2

    the trick is to eject (just push it, don't need to remove from slot) and quickly reinsert the red GW card, with me works everytime.

    Meh, that's never happened to me. The steps I put up there are what I do any time I'm experiencing any issues where I don't 100% know what the cause of it is.

    Looks like a SD Card Compatibility issue. Tried with different brand SD Card it worked.
