    I recently got a sky3ds+ (orange buttons) and have yet to run any games on it.
    I'm using a new 3DS on most recent firmware, USA version, 64gb patriot microSD formatted to FAT32, but I have also tried all of these steps with another 8gb card and a 1gb card with the same results. I have also tried these steps with multiple roms, from reputable sources and from my locale.

    First I tried updating firmware by placing the bin on a microSD then plugging it into my pc, the light goes red briefly then does not stop flashing white for a long time. I eventually unplugged it and tried loading a rom to the microSD, when inserted into my 3DS no lights go on and nothing shows up on the screen for the game tile.

    I then tried loading the microSD with the gameslist.bin and the rom to see if it would work with the firmware it has, still no lights and still no luck.

    I also tried manually creating the settings.txt in a last ditch effort, no lights, no game tile.

    I'm looking for anyone with experience to let me know what to try next, or to indicate if this is a hardware issue and to have the cart replaced.

    Thanks guys
