    I was wondering if anyone else has this issue? I know that the sky is known to be a pretty crappy build quality but I have a hard time even inserting it let alone without it ejecting. When I try to eject the cartridge it clicks and then doesn't move. I have to use tweezers to grab the card and pull it out to the point that I can grab it with my fingers.

    Have you tried wiggling it out? I have a normal XL and I have to wiggle it a bit to be able to insert and remove it.

    Have you tried other carts in the N3DS? I got one with a defective cartridge slot. You had to push extremely hard to get carts both in and out. Otherwise they'd just pop back out when pushing in, or seem like they were almost jammed inside once they finally clicked.

    Ya it wont wiggle or move at all when I use the Sky but a normal cartridge is totally fine. I may have gotten just a worse made sky card than most people get. I ejects okay in my regular 3DS but not the N3DS.

    This exact same thing happens to my N3DS too! I panicked a little when it first happened as I thought the sky card was stuck in there, I now just use my finger nail to grip the sky card and it manages to get it out. The new 3ds is rockin a pretty tight slot :evil:

    Sky has a better build quality than Gateway. I've had no issues with mine.

    +1 after a while its ok but at first I was panicking and thinking that it was a trap. I could almost visualize Ackbars face pointing at me while laughing.

    Ha ya I had the same feeling. I started to freak when it didn't pop back out. I will try sanding the card and see if that helps. The only problem is that I don't know exactly where on the cartridge the issue is coming from.

    I'm guessing you mean it should eject and insert cards? (push/pull functions?) Ya its just the sky3ds cartridge not the N3DS that is causing the issue.

    With mine it doesn't even eject enough to where I can grab it. I have to get tweezers to grab the edge of the cartridge. Ha I don't like the idea of having to carry tweezers everywhere with me to eject the sky.

    Normally you can make enough space to take it out with your bare hands if you eject the uSD and grab it around the slot. Not an optimal solution, but it works for me (on a fat GW).

    Had the problem on mu n3ds xl. Check and see if the bottom cover of the system is fitter ok.
    Mine was seperated a little bit causing a tiny block. I pushed it into place and all is fine now.

    Try removing the sticker. Worked on mine. I replaced the sticker and I can enter it without any problem.
