    Hi

    I got my sky3ds today and try it out, unfortunately, it’s not working. I follow all the step on the official website, use the latest temp and the latest diskwriter, try the holding the blue button insert/eject method many time with no luck. I’m using the Samsung 64gb micro sd xc and two other sd cards that I got from my phone. The game I’m trying is legend of zelda ocarina of time, I try downloading the rom from 2 different website and I made sure I have the US region one. The main problem i have is that the game won’t show up on 3ds menu, in fact for some reason the light on the card doesn’t light up at all, even if I insert the card with no micro sd card the light still won’t work. Can someone help me out on this problem because I’m running out of idea.

    Thanks

    If the light doesn't go on, you probably have a defective card. If you send it back try and get a refund rather than a replacement, that way you can get the Orange button.

    Hmm I don't think your card is broken… I tried mine just an hour ago and had the same problem, game didn't show up and the button didn't work.
    I formatted(using "format" of diskwriter), reinstalled the game and it was done.

    Try changing sd card again, and for diskwriter's last version they suggest to use a usb adapter for the sd card. Also, don't import a .sav and try another rom.

    But first the light is supposed to work if there is no sd card (I tried), so yeah the card is probably broken.
     
  17. If you have tried holding the button and inserting/ejecting and random button presses, it could be your SD card. Try a different one and make sure it's formatted in fat32.
