    Not entirely sure if this would be related, but in the past there were issues with firmware 4.1 that caused various problems with Gateway features. People who updated to a max of 4.5 resolved many problems. I'm running 4.3 and not having problems.

    Like I said, this may not be the reason for your problem, but this has been a recurring issue in the past.

    The only way to safely do it is via a retail cart. There is a topic (I believe one in the stickies) that can give you a link to site that shows what firmware update is bundled with the cart. If I recall (but please double check this before you would attempt it), Luigi's Mansion came bundled with the 4.5 firmware update. I'm sure that there are others, but that is the one that I've seen talked about most often.
