    Hey, so I got a sky3ds the other day, followed all the guides to properly installing everything with diskwriter. so when it comes to putting it into my 3ds i managed to get it to work the day i got it and it worked fine until last night when my game kept crashing on me. so i decided to add couple more games to it and now i cant get it to work. i put it into my 3ds and every 10 tries i get the quick flashing blue light so as i have read i remove it and put it back in but nothin happens. before i exited diskwriter i double checked that it showed how much space i had left, cause i read if it showed no space then somethin was wrong so that isnt an issue, i have the most up to date template.

    so i am wondering if anyone has an idea of a way to fix this, am i doing it wrong?

    Sometimes, when it blinks, you just leave it blinking and you go to settings. Go back and it'll show. It happened to me.

    Kingston SD Card's do not work well with Sky3DS. When I tried one on one of my four Sky3ds's it only worked on one of them and frequently switches games randomly and fcks up my progress.

    Should put a disclaimer up that kingston SDs do not work with sky (blue button)

    If you have a lot of games on it, it will take a long time to have them show up/cycle them, or you may have a defective sd card?

    I am going to say your sd card might be fake by the sound of it if you can take pictures of it will help.

    Download h2testw and test your whole card (read and write option). It will take a while depending on the speed and size of your card. It will tell you if your card is fake or not.

    That should be fine it's a class 10 fast read write speeds this worries me.

    Side note: Wow great I was about to buy this sd card how the heck do you get sky not to crash your own games on you? Is there some trick of doing it?

    i dunno, it worked perfectly the first couple days and now nothin. I'm wondering if my sky card is the issue, maybe a bad card or somethin? cause from everything ive seen and read, it shouldnt be this difficult to get to work

    Just curious @calibretto02 what game started freezing on you and does it happen randomly or in certain place/level?

    it started freezing on rune factory 4. i was maybe 5 or 6 hours into it, no problems at all. next day loaded it up and anywhere from a few minutes in to about 10 it would freeze. didnt matter where i was cause the freeze would happen so sporadically. the 3ds would then do a complete restart and ever since ive been having these issues.

    I am wondering if there is some well documented game compatibility list or SD cards list that would help future buyers of sky avoid game crashing and unreliability with certain brand SDs

    You know what.. I think we need to format the SDs to fat32 try doing that @calibretto02 reformat the micro to fat32 using a sd formatter (windows doesn't do it right) mine is in fat maybe if I reformat it to fat32 it will stop freezing, let me know!
