    So I got Gateway 3ds a week ago and I got it from modchip central and Gateway works I played a couple of games. But most of the time I get Game Card Was Removed when I boot up the game Then if I take out the micro SD card and put it back in it works but only sometimes. Does anybody know what the problem it. I am running Firmware GW 3.4.1 Ultra on my 2ds.

    Have you verified that you received a legit cart and not a fake?

    Contact issues maybe? Try sticking a small piece of paper (cut up a post it note, for instance) behind the card when you insert it into the system and see if that helps.

    2ds you're better off selling your GW and using 6.x mset with rx tools. GW never put out an official fix for the 2ds

    GW is not working properly on 2DS. I have 2 GWs, both of them work good on my n3ds, and neither works on the 2DS. Getting the same problem you got, tried several methods (reformat, cluster size, different brands cards of different sizes) none solved the problem. If you don't have or aren't planning to get a new hackable 3ds, you'd better sell the GW and try another approach.

    Or play every game as a cia. Which leads into your point if you're not planning to get a n3ds gw is kinda a waist. Better off selling it and buying a big sd card
