    Purchased a Gateway 3DS today and already having problems with it. Any games that I load on the 'red' card are not being read - the 3DS isn't coming up with any icon, or any place (that I can find) that shows the test game I have loaded on the card.

    I've followed the instructions perfectly - and seem to have no problems rebooting into GS mode from the Blue card.

    I have then tried to run launcher.dat - it tells me to Boot Gateway Mode, but then prompts me to insert the Gateway 3DS card (I presume the red card).

    Inserting the red card makes the screen go blank, then I get the system settings menu again, but can't see any games.

    Please somebody... tell me where I'm going wrong!!

    Press Select while you don't have any games running in the background. It'll show on the top screen

    Pressing select does nothing... the slot where an original game would usually appears is blank - I would have thought the game I have loaded on my SD card would show up there. Where do I press select from - the main menu?

    Press select after entering gateway mode and highlighting your cursor over the slot where the game image is supposed to appear. Example: Skip to 1:20

    If that doesnt work, you probably downloaded fake roms and or have an sd card problem.
