    Recently, it has become increasingly hard to get things to work.
    I've made very little changes to my 3DS XL once I set it all up to work correctly, so why this is happening suddenly is a mystery to me, the three main issues I'm experiencing are the following -


    1: When starting my 3DS XL, A popup informs me that my SD card is write-protected, even though its not. I have to restart several times & re-insert the card to fix this. The card is a name brand SanDisk Ultra 128GB MicroSD card purchased directly from Amazon. I use the provided SanDisk adapter to use the microSD card in the SD card slot.

    2: When booting Gateway mode, I'm often presented with yet another message saying that my Gateway card is not detected. I have to re-insert & restart my 3DS XL multiple times to finally boot into Gateway mode.

    3: Finally, when in Gateway mode & attempting to access the game selection menu by pressing select, I get yet another error saying no MicroSD card detected in my Gateway cart resulting in the failure of loading my games list. The MicroSD card used in my Gateway card is yet another SanDisk Ultra 128GB MicroSD card purchased directly from Amazon.

    Does anyone have any experience with any of the issues I have outlined in this post?
    Any fixes I can attempt to reduce ANY of these problems? I've tested my cards on my desktop Windows PC & ran various diagnostics on them, but found no errors. They can be read perfectly fine, every time, using my PC.

    tl;dr - Im constantly running into issues where my Gateway card, SD card, & microSD within my Gateway card cannot be read or falsely report that they are write-protected. Any advice is appreciated.

    You know that your post is a dick move to people with dark themes, as the points are barely if not very hard to read

    Well a forum having an extremely "light" theme & an extremely "dark" theme is ridiculous, it makes it very hard to choose font colors which will work nicely on both.
    Since the light theme is the default theme, it is the one I'm using & the one I use to judge readability. Maybe you should just highlight the entire post rather than being so upset you have to post an uncropped large image which reveals you use such trash as GIMP. Just a suggestion my man.

    I use gimp :O
    OMG I must be drawing bad things :blink::blink:
    AND GIMP IS TRASH OMG, I BETTER USE PAINT OR BETTER OVERPRICED JUNK SUCH AS CS6
    What about just using the default font color, as no one is going to pay attention to your post(specially because is gateway related) just because you have colors all over your post .
    This is not a drawing, this is rather a forum post

    First of all, whos paying for Photoshop? Thats pleb behavior. At the very least Paint.net would be a better choice.
    Secondly I think its fine the way it is, Im sorry you consider font colors a "drawing". I'm sorry you're so triggered by a post you seem to be unable to read.
    How about you just leave the thread that you're so upset about & go back to whatever furry site you came from.
    If I don't get any valuable replies to my thread due to a minor detail like the font colors I chose, I'll accept that.

    fine, I'll leave the thread mr 8 posts, you must be a really valuable member here to tell me to "go to whatever furry site I came from". Really valuable mr. 8 posts.
    And, it's my choice which image editor to use, I prefer GIMP.
    And I know no one pays for CS6, not even me, but I still disklike it

    Thank you for leaving.
    And yes I know, if you don't spend every day here & spam 100 meaningless posts per day, you're not a "good" member.
    No clearly you, mister 1691 posts, are above me due to your spamming rate.
    Maybe one day you'll base a persons worth on something other than their post cost, but for now just focus on calming down, you're clearly very upset right now for some reason.

    What? Its true, most of your posts are meaningless little thought fragments that contribute very little if nothing & are read by no one. Now, leave like you said you would.

    Okay yes I get it, you want to have the last word. You're not only some random person who is too unintelligent to use a complicated program like Photoshop, but you're also so childish you feel the need to have the "last word". Well go ahead, take it. And then leave.

    okay, your kind of answers are starting to jump from random(yes random because you don't really know what's going on here on gbatemp, either because of your post count or the way you try to attack other people) to idiotic, and as I told you I use GIMP because I find paint.NET and cs6 unnatractive and unpractical.
    That's purely my choice. Not yours.
    Also, cmonnn, I don't want to have the last word, I sincerily want you to have your question answered, I just advised you to not use assholish colors on your fonts, which would help the people who would try to read your post and help you.
    But you decided to keemstar on this, congratulations!

    nothing!
    the colors are just impossible to read with some themes, that's what I was hoping you would understand, because a large portion of the gbatemp community is using the dark theme, which makes it very hard to read your help thread

    I have to say I agree with David okay sorry. I am using the dark theme and I can't even be bothered to read your post right now. Why not use the default? In the light theme it's automatically black and in the dark theme it's automatically white. Just a heads up..
