    my friend bought a gateway for himself and made it work, and he basically did the same for me.

    initially Shovel Knight and Smahs bros both were working on my 3DS. He put Persona Q and Pokemon AR on it, and then i went home.

    but now it says "read error" when i press select to choose a game... the diagnoiss thing says "SD CARD FAIL" too. what happened?! how acan i fix this?! HELP.

    i don't really know the process of making stuff work on gateway and such, so i can't confirm how these things were done. if you think you can help me but need a question answered please tell me where i cna find the info you need.

    i just noticed that it no longer says "GW" before the version in the system config, before the gateway menu...

    Your friend gave you a very complex flashcart and clearly didn't explain how to use it. Not Cool.

    Regarding the card error. Try reseating the mSD and gateway card.

    You need to get back into gateway mode. Do you know how to do that? What is the version number in sysnand?

    he told me how to setup my game sand how to play them, that seemed enough.

    regardless, i'm ashamed to say that i didn't notice the Gateway cartridge didn't have it's micro SD on, that solved my problem.... i'm sorry for wasting your times
