    Hi,
    Having an issue with my new blue button sky3ds card, Im using disk writer V105 and Template 1225.
    I am copying over all euro roms from *Snip!* All of the roms appear to be working if you write them to the sd card first but when pressing the blue button it wont change from the first game? I have noticed that the blue LED keeps flashing continuously which seems a bit unusual, can anyone help?
    Cheers.

    Firstly, remove any mention of download sites.. Against the rules.. Secondly, format your SD using Panasonic SD formatter and try again. That's the first place.

    The continuous flashing seems to mean that it's basically stuck on a game. Ironically, this was considered a good thing since it helped bypass the 10 game limit for older cards. When that happens, the cart has to be ejected or the system shut off to make it stop.

    Are you holding the button down or just tapping it?

    Animal crossing seems to work and stop the flashing of the LED but once you switch it to the next rom it starts flashing again and wont switch again?
    I have noticed that it is the only game that has NO in the EEPROM column.

    I have tried holding it down and just tapping it then leaving 30secs and turning it off and on and still does not seem to work.

    AC:NL is supposed to be EEPROM=no since it's a CARD2 game, and CARD2 games don't have EEPROM chips built in.

    I haven't tried the latest writer or template, but (at least certain) CARD2 games have required the original writer and template. I would delete it with the newer writer, and try reburning it with the originals.

    Sometimes simply removing and putting the cart back in works when it's not switching games, I don't know why that happens every now and then.

    Mkay,
    so ive tried a re-write of the sd card used v102 the same problem persists I now have 2 games with no in the EEPROM column they will scroll through using the eject the card method. However the other roms with the EEPROM set at yes cause the LED to continue to flash constantly while playing the game and when you try to select another game it will only take you back to the start of the game list. Weird!

    so you have 2 euro roms on a micro sd card thats not a small one, a 32gb one for example, you switch your 3ds on and when its loaded you insert the sky3ds and your 1st game loads, you press the button and the game does its eject thing then reloads the first rom again? is this right ?

    I have a 32G card, it will work fine with 2 games pokemon omega ruby, animal crossing but when it goes onto mariokart the LED will keep flashing and doesnt let you scroll onto other games just back to the start.

    sounds like a faulty card, did you follow the instructions on the sky3ds website to the T?

    im not sure is a faulty card --->>> buggy or glitch card or in the wast case is a faulty card

    what card you have sky3ds the blue or red card

    im not sure this going fix your problem try it

    try this remove the micro sd card in your sky3ds card and power on your 3ds system with out the sky3ds inside now put it in you 3ds system you will see the blue led blink 3 time or flashing

    now eject you sky3ds card then put in the micro sd card in sky3ds card then put back in your 3ds system then see if you can switch through all the game now

    this here is with micro sd card in side shy3ds card
    or try this when you power on the the 3ds system without the sky3ds in side
    when you put in the sky3ds in your 3ds system when it click in hold the button for 5 second you see no led light then eject the sky3ds card then put it back then see if you can switch through all the game now

    Mine blinks here and there just as well as yours does, but restarting the system does the job for me.
