    Hi everyone.

    I was wondering whether anyone else was experiencing (or has a solution to) the problem I've been having. I recently bought a SKY3DS card and am reasonably happy with it. The only issue I've found is that if I swap over the SD card to play more games, some of the games lose their saves. Two example games are Fire Emblem and Zelda a link between worlds, neither of these games retain there saves if the SD card is changed.

    What I've done so far:

    Checked on three separate SD cards, one Samsung, one Sandisk and one Kingston.
    Formatted each card multiple times, both through Diskwriter and windows
    Tried another version on the games involved
    Tried backing up the save once I'd removed the card and restoring it before I put the SD card back in.

    Has anyone else been using multiple SD cards and more specifically have they tried these two games? Loads of other games are saving fine and as long as I don't change the SD card they continue to save/reload/function correctly.

    Somewhere in this potatoland!
    Before you swap SD, boot any other game on the sd, close game, pop out your sky3ds and swap sd

    Try that?

    Amazing! Thanks Djoen! About the only thing I didn't try and it worked. :) Bit weird that you have to do that but as long as it works I'm happy.
