    Do other flashcards fit like butter on a N3DS Xl? Is the R4i Gold different design wise?

    My console is already kinda falling apart on its own, the last thing i wanna do is shove a R4 on its entrails.

    I kind of have to push my card in along one side. The side that wouldn't have the wide tab (you know, that part that sticks out). Otherwise, that card would wobble a bit while going in.

    Supercard DSTWO is the same, sometimes it slightly catches on one side, just have to push it to the other side and slowly but firmly slot it in. Never had any issues.

    I just cant seem to make the cards fit in the console, if i push all the way ill get a response but if i remove and it says in an iddle position, the connection is lost with the 3DS.

    I tried it in my O3DS and fits like a charm. What am i doing wrong hmm

    Try using the inside of your shirt to wipe the contacts on the card. I noticed that mine was a bit dirty. I was thinking about gutting a 3ds game to put the motherboard of my r4i card in the housing. I have no idea if that'll work, though
