i have this problem
Can you provide information such as where you ordered, what micro SD card you used, etc.?
Try contacting the Gateway 3DS team about the problem they should help you.
i have a 3ds eu with game pal
i used 3 different microsd
1 kingston 2GB
1 Kodak 2GB
1 kingston 8GB
the card has worked only one time yesterdey
the first time (with luigi mansion) the 3ds tell me "i can't save" reboot, after it tell me the cartridge is removed.
after more time ....after i have clean the contact, the card work, i tried 3 game:
layton OK and save
puzzle bobble OK abd save
luigi mansion OK but do't save
today the card is dead
and 2 different sd card for launcher .dat
Is your SD card (the one on the side of the 3DS) formatted to FAT32 (not the default FAT)?
Is the ROM for your region?
work in fat32???????
You need to format the SD card to FAT32, according to Gateway's instructions. That might be your problem.
EDIT: Make sure you back up everything on the SD card before formatting, if you delete eShop games you won't be able to re-download them.
formatted in fat 32
made all the steps but ...nothing.....the card is removed
when i press the a button for lounch the game, the 3ds tell me the card is removed press home
If it says it's removed, it sounds more like a contact error.
Have you cleaned inside the slot as well, or just the GW3DS?
just the gw3ds.......
how do i clean the contact inside the slot?.......with what?
the blue card work PERFECTLY
the *.nds game work all...and save
i'll try tomorrow to clean inside the 3ds
thank you very much
o-o btw, the only [relatively] safe way to clean inside it that I can think of would be a cue tip, but you should ask someone more knowledgeable on it before attempting to do it yourself.
Maybe you have a bad rom dump.
Find another one on the web.
Go to NFO Rush,copy the filename of the rom and then google it.
the same rom...yesterday worked perfectly.......i don't think the problem is rom...
Some GW cards is poorly produced. You may be just unlucky that got such ones.
There are guys reporting similar faults on Chinese Forums.
For the sake i would not post their names here, just to make a conclusion.
1.Some tf cards that not legit enough would cause errors, including freezes/ exit failure.
They even recommend me to get a C10 Sandisk or other brands.. (Note: Not kingston)
2.Some GW cards have already been confirmed to be bad ones.
Someone even just played for 3 hours, and got his card inavailable the next day.
He contacted the reseller and after confirmed that is really broken, the reseller changed his card.
3.Some 3DS Models including the first JAP models may even have faults in the 3ds itself.
Since you told us some clues, i think that is your GW red card got dead not your tf card.
Just ask for change the card. There are differences in product between the first batch of GW and the second.
Hope you enjoy yourself. If not believed in me you can try more methods. BTW cleaning is often good.
Are you sure someone hasn't accidentally updated your 3DS? Cause I can't see your firmware in the video.
......the firmware is 4.5.0 10e
i don't update
i just downloaded mario kart in another site and work perfect....""""FOR NOW"""""
Did the build quality decline or improve with the second batch? With these reports of faulty cards I might just wait a month or two to purchase a gateway. Will this improve my chances of getting a better quality unit (with the manufacturing issues being sorted out)?
