    I have a very odd problem and not sure what is going on.

    I am using the following...

    New 3DS XL (USA) with very latest firmware
    Sky3DS (Blue button) with latest template and diskwriter
    17 or so USA 3DS games on a Sandisk 32gb Extreme

    I get a weird cycling issue when it reaches anything past the 5th or 6th game on the SD card. Once I get to game 6 say... it will then auto switch to the next game until it gets back to game 1. Now, when it gets into a cycling pattern, I can push and hold the blue button until it steadily flashes. Then it will stay on that game and I can play it, but the blue light keeps on flashing and does not go off.

    I have tried different SD cards... so I know it is not that. I don't think it is the way I am putting the games on the SD card either. Otherwise all games wouldn't work I think.

    All the games are USA versions. Could it be the games and not the Sky3DS?

    Not sure what to think at this point.

    You've got yourself a Red button Sky3ds.
    If you've bought it recently, i'd see about returning it for a refund or replacement.

    Is it common, that even though it has a blue button, it is a red button? Do they just take red buttons and refurbish them with blue buttons as a scam?

    I don't know about common, but it happens. Especially with the less reputable resellers (say if you were to buy from alibaba or something)

    But yeah, it's just a matter of removing the plastic blue button and placing a plastic red button in it's place. xD

    Really. OK. At least I am not crazy.
