    If the write-protect switch is wobbly, try gluing it down. Probably it just moves when inserted in the 3DS. If that doesn't help, format it, if that doesn't help, then buy a new SD card.

    Does the SD card work properly in a PC, phone, or some other 3DS/device?

    So multiple SD cards don't work? That sucks :-( Makes it hard to do any hax with a broken SD card reader.

    Maybe he can trade it in towards a 3DS or maybe a limited edition 2DS (to make it believable).
