    So, lately I've been having all kinds of issues with my SD Card, ranging from write errors to crashes with Luma3DS even though the exception handler is disabled. This has become too annoying and has been happening too often. I'd like some help.
    I have cleaned out dust and have write lock disabled.
    I'm using an old2DS with Luma3DS 8.1. The SD Card I use is a 32 GB microSD Card by PNY.

    Oh yeah, I should probably note, there's something on the inside of the SD Card slot that's red. I think it's just the connectors. Is that normal?

    And have you tested it with other sd cards too?

    I'd use something to check if the SD card is corrupting.

    H2Testw is what 3ds.guide says to use to check if an SD card is corrupt and I've used it personally so I can recommend it. They also have a helpful guide on how to use it.
