    Hello again guys,

    So now that my annoying problems are over with Sky3ds I am left with just one tiny issue.
    Everything works perfectly and I can cycle through all my games except The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

    What's interesting is that this causes no errors with the cycling. I press the button to switch to LoZ ALBW and it goes blank like last cart was ejected but it never comes back. Then I press the button again and I'm at the next game in the list.

    Now, I don't know much about headers or templates but from what I've been reading it sounds like a bad header/bad template? What do you all think?

    Has anyone else gotten this game to work?

    Sky3ds blue by the way, cause who would get red? :P

    Why dont you try getting another rom? And is it the same region as your 3ds?

    yeah a link between worlds has worked for me, make sure its the same region as your 3ds, not a faulty microsd card, or the last thing i would regret saying is a faulty sky3ds.
    use the latest template and disk writer, if that doesn't work try switching this up a bit.

    I've had a faulty micro SD and this behaves nothing like it. I have 7 games on the SD already and they all work fine. ALBW just won't show up. The ROM is US and so is my system.
    I have DiskWriterv105 and the latest template (12/26)

    So what I'm going to do now is try to add a different game in the 8th slot and see if it works.

    Are you sure your rom is the right region? How are you determining this? You can't just go by what the download site claims. I've had them claim it was a US rom before then when I go to start it, nope, it's not. I use Gateway so it's not a big deal for me, just that out of region roms always make the parental controls go off, but I'm just saying, it might not actually be the right region just because they claim it is.

    Ironic, since i have a red button clone (R5SDHC) and it works flawlessly.

    Anyways, if you have the Method 1 tool from the red button sticky, it can tell you what the rom information is without converting it. Just to double check the region.

    Good point here. I did try two roms though both labeled US. I'll check the region anyways

    Not getting much info out of this tool, maybe something is staring me in the face?

    Code: CTR-P-BZLP
    Size: 1073741824

    That's pretty much it.

    3ds.essh.co says that CTR-BZLP is the European release.

    Wrong rom, I suppose.

    Yea, sorry. I like to verify what I'm burning before I open up the burning software.

    Maybe that's a bad habit I should break.

    I have been having the same problem with only LoZ ALBW - also I have the blue button sky3ds and I acutally have games from all regions playable on my Game Cart. (I know this because my Majoras mask is EUR for sure as well as having Final Fantasy Explorers which is JP and the rest are USA.

    But similarly I have tried 6 different roms for LOZ, USA and EUR and none of them will show up. any suggestions?
