    Wherever you want me, baby.
    I've got a nice memory stick, but when I select a rom from my GW menu, it takes legit 20-30 seconds to change to that game, from the white icon...


    Uh. What do I do...?

    Have you tried to format the mSD card and then put back the roms?

    I haven't but that's a good idea! I'll try that. Thanks!


    -I did, however, remove a rom and the load times boosted a lot... huh.

    Just formatted. Same. Fucking. Issue. What the hell? I selected Animal Crossing, and it's been (not exaggerating. As I type this) 4 minutes, and it still hasn't loaded yet after selecting it from the rom menu. I have no idea what to do and I'm worried as hell.

    Help...?

    what brand is your nice memory stick ? where did you buy it from as it could be fake & if it's from ebay then there is big chance it could be fake. i use 64gb Sandisk Ultra & never had a single issue from it for a year. excellent card.

    Are you sure you don't need to just select the rom again? Sometimes I have to select a rom twice on my gateway from the rom menu for it to load up.

    SD card could be going bad. I just bought a 32gb UHS-1 sandisk and it booted Bravely default, a 4gb game, in just 5 seconds.

    Get SDformatter, do a full erase (writes 0s to the SD card). This was a solution to the gateway not even working with the last SD I had in it. Could help you too.

    That seemed to work, but I'll keep you all updated if anything changes. Thank you!
