    All of a sudden, I get Filesystem error when inserting a MircoSD into the Gateway. I thought it might be a contacts issue, as the card looks elevated in the device, but I tried using paper/tape and it didn't work (I might be doing it wrong though). If no SD card is in, I simply get read error, so it must be detecting the card to some extent. I tried this with 2 mirco sds, and happened after I was using it with an old Micro SD. Diagnostic test shows fail on SD test.

    Fortunately I have BBM installed and my EmuNand backed up, but I'm annoyed by the fact that I won't be able to use .3ds homebrew. I got mine a RHS, so returning it for a new one is out of the question.

    I have no fucking idea.
    I got this on my GW (got it yesterday) but I just took the SD out and left it, put it back in and it's reading my roms ;-;
    Filesystem error is usually a) broken GW or b) broken mSD

    And you have tried it with 2 SD's so it might be the GW,

    Gotta be careful how you put the mSD. If you can read the mSD on your computer than try another on the GW. If it still doesn't read contact reseller to see if they can rma it.
