    Hi peeps,

    I received my Sky3ds eventually yesterday from YeahGeeks followed instructions of inserting cart, then removing and inserting again but i get no content load and have never had the cart's blue light flash.

    Is this likely a duff cart even though YeahGeek say they test all carts or have i done something wrong?

    Any help gratefully received.

    You need to hold the button as you insert the Sky. Sometimes it takes a couple tries. Read the set up instructions on the Sky website.

    Double check that your micro SD is pushed in all the way. If you have a different micro SD available, format and try it to make sure the SD card isn't the issue.

    Eject, and try again. I have had to take the Sky out and put it back in a few times to get it to 'take'.

    The one I bought is working fine on all consoles, it just didn't work on that particular one for some weird reasons.

    I wouldnt really know how to solve this. It seems that the card isnt compatible with some units - maybe a anti piracy measure Nintendo is introducing with newer batches? Who knows...

    Wait, it works in other consoles but not that one?

    First off, the firmware is...??

    Is it a limited edition 3DS? A 2DS maybe?

    What mSD is in the 3DS? Is it the same brand as the Sky3DS mSD?

    It might be possible there is a conflict with the sysNAND SD card. It might be confusing them. Although I wonder how...??? Well, it might be because they were formatted on the same PC? Is that possible? Hrm.. not sure what's going on here.

    Worst case scenario is that Nintendo is blocking it with 9.6.0-24X. Which wouldn't surprise me...

    The same thing happened to the XL this guy had whom I wanted to sell my card to. Try holding the blue button while slowly inserting the card and see if it helps.
