    I felt the urge to play some Pokemon Heartgold and put it in my CFW 3ds, I opened it up and just got a black screen that played my 3DS themes song. No buttons worked and I had to hard reset it. I panicked and quickly put in my Pokemon Y, which worked fine. I used my Omega Ruby and Super Smash Bros just fine as well. I wondered if my Heartgold got damaged somehow and tried to run my Platinum, I got the same black screen with theme music playing. I tried both my White games and a Professor Layton game just to be sure.
    I popped out my SD card and got the same results.
    Does anyone have any idea why it's not reading my DS cards? They are all legit and have worked before I got CFW. My 3DS cards run fine, just my DS ones.
    I have an old DS lite but still, it's nice to play it on my 3DS.

    Thanks haha, my google search initially didn't give me that somehow, just old message board threads.
