    Hey my gateway has been working fine from it's release but now all the new games I try I get an error has occurred. Hold down the POWER button to turn off but I can play professor layton vs ace attorney on it new ones I try and the new pokemon that was working fine on it now don't work I tried reinstalling the blue card and 3ds sd card and same problem. Should I delete all the files on the 3ds sd card and update my firmware in gateway mode again?

    run diagnostics and see if you get any errors?
    if not try formatting your SD and try copying a game on fresh

    I have tried all that there is no diagnostics problems and formatting and trying different games won't fix it. It's strange some games work and others don't

    Have you tried defragging, or a different SD card?

    Do you mean the 3ds sd card? No I didn't want to lose my games save files I will try it after I finish a game it seems there's no easy fix and I tried it with the gateway sd card it works because the games already worked on it. thanks anyway ill work something out

    You can easily copy both the files on your SD and the games on the microSD to your computer, then copy them back. They'll still work.
