So recently, my 3DS has been acting a bit...strange lately. Earlier before this stuff, I had pulled out my SD Card & put it into my SD Card Reader for the use of Homebrew. When I took it out, & tried to put it back in, it was rejecting the SD Card Slot for some weird reason. I originally thought it was an SD Card problem, since it was immediately powering off & making a popping noise (I was aware of the ribbon cable issue, but that wasn't it), so I tried my other SD Card. Didn't work at all. My other SD Card was just saying, "Could not detect SD Card. The software could not be displayed.", & me being stupid, I was trying to boot up my 3DS without formatting the SD Card first. Several days later, I tried formatting the SD Cards & my 3DS; nothing. Even back then, I was being stupid, because there was something stuck in there, & eventually got it out recently (my stupidity being trying to make it work with the thing stuck in there). After getting the broken part of my SD Card out (yes, I forgot to mention my original SD Card was chipped for some reason; the flap was broken, exposing the chip, & the lock was gone, but I put tape on it to prevent it from becoming write protected), I tried putting my other SD Card back in, & went to Data Management; it said, "No SD Card Found" under each section. I can't play Smash Bros. or Pokémon on my 3DS, because of these issues. Before you ask, I did research, & I'm not looking forward to trying to repair it. Literally have $37 in my wallet, & that won't help me out at all. My mom doesn't want me to try & open it, & that's what's really hindering me as of now. Kinda on a time crunch, because I have until March 24th to fix this, & that's when my Game Night is. Overall, I need help.
