    I purchased a gateway 3ds card and tried to install the hack and my 3ds xl did not read the card (although it dose read my 3ds and ds game fine) I tried everything different microsd cards different formatting tools nothing and the card did work on my old 3ds just fine so I went and purchased a R4i gold 3ds card so i can install blue card content (I know the steps to use the R4i card which is to copy the kernel to the microsd card along with the gateway 3ds .3ds installer file) and still the same problem happened what should I do please help my 3ds is on 4.4.0 10u firmware should i update to 4.5.0 ? or what ?

    Could try formatting the system, sometimes the.Ds profile can be corrupted which is only fixed by formatting the system, not sure it will help here as it's only really corrupted like that when playing about with the homebrew roploader

    Could you be more exact about what the problem is? First of all, please use some punctuation marks. This is terrible to read.
    Which card doesn't it read? What do you mean by "not reading" anyway? What are the 'symptoms'? What do you mean it "reads your 3DS and DS games fine"? What is the problem then?

    im sorry English is not my native language

    the problem is that my 3ds xl does not read (gives me an error there is nothing inserted in game room) the gateway 3ds blue card nor the R4i card while it reads my other original 3ds and ds games just fine

    and also both cards the gateway 3ds blue card and R4i are working with my old 3ds

    I did try to format with no luck

    I see. It's more clear now. Thank you.
    That said, I don't know exactly what could be wrong. Are you sure you have the necessary kernel files on your blue cards?

    Well he said they work on his standard 3ds so they sound like they are set up correctly and are working, so the issue has to be down to the 3ds,

    Last thing you cam really try is updating the firmware to another in the 4.x range and see if it helps

    I'm also assuming you have checked it's not partially updated (look if it has the miiverse icon in the top right of the homescreen).....but the R4i should work up to 8.x anyway unless it's a older revision

    My 3DS on 4.4 read the blue card perfectly at one stage.

    Now the blue card is completely cactus after 2 single uses to install exploit.
