    Hi there. My new sky3ds arrived today and i have been messing around with it for about 3 hours, I can´t load a single rom, the blue led just wont blink, no matter what I´m doing. I´ve tried 3 different microsd cards, 4 different roms, no effect. And google have no idea too. Can anyone help me?

    No one here can help you if you received a broken card... Try getting an exchange/refund from the website you bought it from.

    Did you format your sd card using the sky3ds disk utility?

    I don´t think, that my card is broken. I think something is wrong with the diskwriter, it always says, that i have to update the template file, but I have the latest version.

    You have to select it in the diskwriter.

    That´s what I´m getting every time I try to write new rom via diskwriter.

    Are you sure that you selected the template? Try using another template.

    Yep. The template file seems to work, the roms might be broken. I tried to write Xenoblade to my sd card ( its the only .3ds rom I have) and it worked! The other roms are .cia, i had to convert them and not a single one seems to work. Is there an reliable .cia to .3ds converter?

    You can't do that.

    You have to use retail dumped .3ds format only.

    No .cia
    No .cia converted to .3ds
