Isn't it a bit strange that all the operations involving reading/writing to SD card seem to be really slow ? E.g. 3DS startup time is already quite long, and even after the main menu shows up, you still have to wait a second or two until icons for downloaded titles appear... The same for Nintendo Video. When you start this application, it displays "Checking SD card..." for a few good seconds. But c'mon, all it needs to do is merely check existence of 4 downloaded files on the SD card. It should take microseconds. One explanation might be that they've intentionally crippled the SD interface on the hardware level so it could not be used for pirating retail games - i.e., so data could never be transferred from SD card as fast as from a game card.
