    Hi All,

    So i tried updating my games on my sky3ds card, deleting some and putting some more on. The card i bought already had games on it as it was second hand, so these worked. I formatted the card entirely and deleted all the files off of it (a zip folder titled setup.zip which contained a version of DiskWriter and a template file) and i think this is where i screwed up :/. Anyway, i have tried this "Power on your 3ds console , hold to press red/blue button with finger, insert to 3DS Slot with your sky3ds , it will not display any game icon on screen.
    Poll out sky3ds and insert to 3DS again , the LED light will flashing fast, the game icon still doesn’t display.
    Again, poll out sky3ds and insert to 3DS, LED light flashing and turn off in few seconds, this means the first game save data has been read EEPROM normally from MicroSD card, you can play to enjoy it.", what i saw in another thread and this didn't work either. I've started fresh multiple times and still to no avail, sorry if this is unclear, if you need me to clarify anything feel free to message me or reply to the thread and ill try to give you as much information as i can :) appreciate all the help! thanks

    Check the microSD card with H2testw. Having some games working and others not sounds like a fake card.

    Try to use another microSD card and make sure all your Roms are in the same region with your 3DS console.
    Did you use the diskwriter to flash the 3ds games to your microSD card

    Did you confuse sky3ds with sky3ds+?

    You must use diskwriter to copy games onto the sd card. Fat32 formatted cards are not recognized. The fat partition you deleted contained diskwriter in a zip file. This is normal and diskwriter will always create it and copy itself to it when you format the card with this.
    Reformat and format afterwards the card with diskwriter (those are two options!). Download the current template.txt file from their website and point diskwriter to it. After this you can copy most of the games without error.

    Just don't play them online.

    Greetings.
