    I recently got a Sky3DS and I'm having a weird issue with it. When the card is inserted, with or without a mSD inside of it, it will cause the system menu to stop working after a few seconds of loading. The LED works when the flashcard has an mSD inside of it, and flashes when I press the blue button. Weird thing is, it works fine for a period of time then after reinserting it (after swapping cartridges) it will start doing this again. I've no idea what's causing it, probably poor contact? I doubt that's the case though since it's a fresh out of the box console, and the card is fitting firmly in the slot. Any ideas?

    E: Title should say hang* not hand lol. I should also mention that if I boot the 3DS with the cart already in, then it simply goes to a black screen and stays there. I'm also on 9.7 but that shouldn't matter really.

    E2: So apparently I've found some sort of solution. This is what I've done:

    1. Hover over the Sys Settings icon in the sys menu.
    2. Put in the Sky3DS while holding the blue button.
    3. Enter sys settings.
    4. Take out Sky3DS.
    5. Back out of sys settings to sys menu.
    6. Put S3DS back in and then it works.

    Anyone know why this is a working solution?

    Your method of solution does not work for me.

    For those who have this problem, i contacted sky3ds team, and that was their response.

    "Please contact your reseller(bought your card from) for exchange base on their return policy if it's indeed a defective item..

    Inquiry@SKY3DS".

    I already contacted my reseller, he will send me another flashcard, but it is a very frustrating experience with sky3ds.
