i've found a lot of Eshop VC roms as .3ds files recently. They work fine, however if I load another game or switch off the console, the save file becomes corrupt and resets when I reload the rom. Have tried it with 5 roms and 2 SD cards. Normal retail roms work and save just fine. Any ideas?

sounds like they are card2 games and you trimmed them


Haven't trimmed them myself. Off the top of my head, they are all EXACTLY the same size (I think 158mb.... give or take a few). For a VC rom, that seems to me surprisingly big, rather than trimmed?

    In the EU we get 2 year warranty, but if we open a device the warranty gets void, so I'll just stick with getting a bigger micro sd card.

    back in middle school I used to have floppy disks with roms, good times playing sonic 2 with my classmates in the emulator.

    I'm out of the loop with new hardware thingies, and that includes transfer speeds.

    I do know SD cards have some new standard, with extra pins, and they're freaky fast.

    Compared to when I was last keeping up to date, that is.

    What is this lag, it shouldn't be lag between when you press a button and the corresponding action on-screen, people make a ruckus for less than that

    What lag?

    It's the loading time.

    Not a lag on button presses.

    Portal 2 takes 10-17 seconds longer to load from an SD card than from the internal SSD storage.

    I just wanted to be clear that I had ruled out the lag on button presses. I have reasonable intelligence
