    I just found back my dstwo supercard, got a new sd card, put the files in it
    now I want to play on my N3ds with latest firmware (A9LH and Luma) but it doesnt seems to work
    All I get when I open it on the 3ds main menu is a black screen
    I dont even get the Nintendo 3ds red and black screen first
    nothing

    Have you tried using a regular DS?

    It works perfectly on a regular DSI

    Maybe it's something about the 11.4 3DS update

    I have a regular dstwo and it worked on 11.3. (I haven't updated yet)
    I can update to 11.4 real quick to check and then go back with a nand backup and report the results.

    @Noctosphere
    I can confirm that it works on 11.4. Are you certain you've updated your card to the latest firm? If not you'll need to do that with the regular DS. Then you should be able to play on the 3DS.

    another update
    my mom's updated supercard dstwo doesnt work either on my 3ds
    so I guess it's a problem coming from my 3ds

    If even a regular DS game or another flash card is also not working, you can try installing the DS whitelist cia, though really you might as well try it just in case.

    https://3ds.guide/troubleshooting/

    This worked for me a long time ago when installing A9LH happened to break DS functionality.

    Edit: To be more clear, install all of those cias following the instructions.

    I've just tried mine for you on my N3DSXL. Its a regular DSTwo Supercard and works all OK on FW11.4 (A9LH+Luma) I have SM64 running ok as well. Just thought I would update you :)

    Sometimes I find with the dstwo card you have to give your sd card a good wipe with a soft cloth and also blow the sd slot & pins on your card itself and while your at it give your 3ds slot a good blow as well, slot it back in and that might do the trick, Mr Alex Rider just might pop up again!.

    It isn't. Nintendo stopped trying to block DS flashcards back with version 6.0.0.
