    For some reason my 3ds doesnt recognize the card anymore. Do i have to go somewhere and update it? If someone could help me it would be really great

    more information is needed do you have cfw? if so did you recently install it? were you using it when it stopped booting?. . . have you attempted to go to the website on the sticker so you can download the latest kernel?

    ok if you can please attempt to boot a real ds game . . . if you cant its ok we can just move to troubleshooting . . . try this Troubleshooting - 3DS Hacks Guide (the first section)

    i mean the front including the website on the sticker

    although from the pictures you sent previously (now that you mention them) i have a question does the 2ds recognize it at all . . . what i mean is if you highlight a game then insert the flashcard will it move to the gamecard slot icon automatically? . . . im thinking no and if i am correct about that then the issue is the connection between the flashcard and the gamecard slot and the fix is to cut a playing card and put it in the flashcard behind the contacts

    I think it is that because it doesnt go to the gameslot automatically. Can i ask what is the thing that you put between the contacts of the gameslot? Maybe i will give that a shot and hopefully it work

    that picture is of a bus pass (in Russian maybe German) although i personally used a pokemon card (a base set charizard) so just about any playing card you want should work

    yea its not detecting it. its something in the card itself i think cause sometimes it freezes my ds completely
