    Try another SD card.

    EDIT - Better yet what type and class is your SD card?

    Like I said

    "already tried on multiple micro sd cards and different roms"

    Tried from class4 for to class 10.... 5 different cards.. all with same result.


    Error happens when game is trying to write something to built in memory.. like save data creation

    a working card from my friend.. put it in my sky3ds.. and I receive error

    Are you sure that you're using genuine trusted brand? Kingstone Sandisk is the one that I nominate.

    Somewhere in this potatoland!
    First thing you need to do is format your microsd card with SDFormatter before using it with diskwriter.

    I tried really everything 5 sd cards.. tried about 60 roms.. only roms that were working were asphalt 3d.. monkey ball 3D and art academy..... all others gave error...
    my conclusion card is broken.. connector problem when it needs to write something to the internal built in memory!! I sended the card back to the retailer

    so far it seems that i managed to fix this problem by inserting a piece of paper along with my sd card into sky3ds, so indeed it is a physical problem being bad contacts between the slot on sky3ds and my sd card... wish they had better build quality...
