    So excuse me if I sound pissed, but Im pissed.

    Been waiting past week and a half for everything to get here. My Micro SD cards, my gateway, and my 4.3 3ds.

    Its all here, I set everything up, I put in my gateway loaded up with Bravely default and....

    Your game card has been removed. Please press home.

    Ok, Look around a little and find out maybe I need to use a different Micro sd card reader. Good thing I have 3 of those. I try another micro sd card, another reader, and load up luigis mansion dark moon.

    Same response. Game card has been removed.

    I see people saying if you get this error its best to return the card and get another, but honestly, I just want to find out WHY this is happening first.

    Ive run diagnostics and I get tha all clear on the first and last test, but I fail the SPI test and teh SPI write test.

    1: What does it mean to fail those tests?
    2: Is there a way to fix the game card has been removed error?

    Note: I know there's threads of this already, but they didn't help, so get off my case.


    UPDATE: I fixed this problem by slightly pulling the microsd card away from the gateway when I put it in so the contacts pus up against the gateway more. IF you have this problem, try that.

    Try an older game, or EmuNAND.

    Update: So I finnicked around with the placement of the microSD card and the gateway card itself and did a diag check again. Got the all clear all around and bravely default is working fine.

    makes me think they need to fix the contacts -_-
