    bought a gateway from a teensy.co.uk.. the card provided is incredibly hard to remove the micro SD card once inserted. is there a specific way or any type of flex?

    I believe only 1 of the Gateway cards is spring loaded (RED), the other one isn't (BLUE). Not sure why they've made it this way, but I assume it's because the blue one is only for the install.

    the blue one is a ace3ds+ clone (at least some are). That's a cheap card so no spring load.
    The red card is made by the GW team and should feel good/ with a good quality. That's the reason why the red one is spring loaded.

    its still incredibly hard to remove the card. after being ejected, its still stuck in the cartridge slot and a real pull is needed each time which i presume can only be damaging to such a small device.

    any advice on who to email? already emailed retailer. could gateway be worth a shout?

    I've tried two but I'll try and buy another to try tonight.

    Its annoying because its an excellent product otherwise.

    Why would they clone something of others? I thought others cloned of GateWay.

    The GW team bought cheap DS mode flashcards (for the blue card). They made the red 3DS mode card themselves.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Edit:
    Here is a interesting post about the DS mode Gateway.

    You should put in a cheap micro sd for the blue card to keep it there forever, since it is a super pain to remove (no spring). The only way I've been able to get my microsd card out was to slide my thumb side to side while pulling it out.
