    Hello, I have updated the firmware using a 64 GB Sandis and formatted the sd card to fat32 at 64kb, but I am having problems seeing any games on my sd card when I load it in my 3ds. I have changed roms on it, to see if it was the roms. (the problem is still there where i cant see any games) I have ejected and reinserted the sky3ds plus in the 3ds on and off and there is still no games. I have a US 2ds using US roms, I dont understand what I am missing to get it to work? Any Ideas? Thanks

    have you held down the button to scan the card on first use? I had similar issue, and needed to get the flash card to read the roms before first use

    Thanks for the help, I have done that, the card seems to read what is on there and gives it a .sav file with it. But in the menu, it still shows no games. I ordered a different micro sd, I thought sandisk would work but It didnt.

    I just checked my Sky3ds+ and it works fine, but if I were you I would just go ahead and install CFW on the 2ds. Your Sky3ds+ could be faulty. If your still wanting to use the Sky3ds+, make sure you update the firmware first in which it will leave a settings.txt. Keep that in your Sky3ds+ and then add your .nds roms

    make sure ur firmware is v140, your card has to be fat32 do do that.
    then format your sd card to exfat 64kb

    games should then show up
    whats ur firmware version say in the settings.txt?

    im pretty sure that the 3ds will not show anything when any card is set to exfat. It needs to be fat32 for the 3ds to read the card.

    no
    i have one.
    firmware v130 started support for exfat.
    we're on v140 now.

    btw he said sky3ds+
    not the 3ds itself

    trust me, ive used the skydock to extract pkmn us and um.
    i know how to inject my own private header into a rom and change its chip id to match.
    i always use the 4gb versions of my games on my sky3ds+ dual orange button with exfat
    on fw v140

    you also have to use encrypted games in .3ds format.
    cia isnt supported, nor eshop games.
    try reformatting your sd card and put an encrypted.3ds game on there

    follow this

    First of all, update your sky3DS+ firmware to V140:
    https://filetrip.net/dl?5izFHjru3h

    Copy the firmware.bin of sky3ds+ firmware V140 into the root directory of your FAT32 microSD card. Insert your microSD card into sky3DS+, connect your PC and sky3DS+ with a USB cable. The LED red light will turn on for 30 seconds, then turn to the green light and keep flashing for 10 seconds, once the light turn off it means the sky3DS+ has been updated successfully. Delete the firmware.bin file in your microSD card. then format the sd card to exfat 64kb for supporting games over 4gb

    if all else fails, re-download that rom from more reliable sources, make sure it is not out of region, or not a modified rom.
