    well this started before my 3DS fell out one time ... now I was playing smash brothers (I open it on the GW menu, not an Instaled Cia) online and on the middle of the battle this happens , more than one time
    if I don't touch the GW and do the exploit, its open the GW menu (with the opitions of game backup, creating emunand and stuffs) .
    well did I just ruined my gw?:/

    Does it let you boot into gateway mode from the menu?

    Sometimes a buggy SD can cause problems. If not properly seated or it's gotten corrupted sectors for whatever reason. Try reformatting and putting your files back on. Make sure the SD is firmly secured.

    Several users including myself have found the problem is flakey Sd card readers. They crap out frequently, try getting a new usb one and fromatting your card again.

    One of those iffy "without brands" likely is just lying about its capacity. You likely wrote more to the card than it can hold, and managed to override some sectors of SSB or something else.

    Sometimes with cards like that they fake the size, They make them so that they show they are a certain size when they are actually smaller. You should try and copy 8gb of data to it and see if you can access all of it.

    If you have used SD Formatter and checked fix size, you confirmed the real size.
    However the microSD with roms might have compatibility issues.
    My Transcend class 10 32GB microSD has problems running some .3DS/3DZ files that work fine with my SanDisk class 4 8gb microSD. If you have a different brand microSD laying around try to use it on the games that say "game card removed"

    Yes I used the SD formater, then the windws to make it exFAT again ( I dididn't find an option on Sd formater to do that :v )
    sadly I don't have more to test here but since fromated it's not having the problem for now, but anything I get a new of a brand to test out

    Its also possible there was a fragment, so formatting might have done the trick.
    I can confirm it sometimes is a brand issue, as I had three cards of the same brand have the same issue with the ROM in question.
