    22 seconds. 22 SECONDS to switch a game after pressing the blue button. Is there anyway to speed this up? I have 12 games and this is very frustrating...
    If anyone has a way to speed the process up, if you told me it, it would be REALLY appreciated. Thanks.

    UPDATE: I was using a class 4 sandisk lmao
    I am now using a class 10 sandisk, it is now just 8 seconds to switch games... HUUGE improvement :D Thanks guys!

    Create a miniature time machine that just jumps forward just that amount of time, or listen to a verse of so solid crews 21 seconds everything you want to change games. Memorise that shit and sing it back to yourself to fill the quiet time

    I don't own a Sky3ds but I'm assuming if everyone's getting a different number it has everything to do with your Microsd's read speed. mind sharing the specs?

    It's definetely the SD card. Try getting a faster one.

    Perhaps you could share what Micro SD you are using? Brand? Size? I don't have a Sky3DS, but I'm sure others would like to know with those speeds.

    Of course, my bad. The old one was a Verbatim class 10 16gb, now is a Kingston 16gb class 10 with UHS. I've heard that the best SD cards are the Sandiks and Kingston ones. Hope it helps.

    Big thanks, I'm sure it'll help some guys here. I should've guessed it really, I've always stuck with those two brands for all my portable storage needs.

    To have quick access between games, use SanDisk Ultra (48 MB/s) or Extreme (60 MB/s) microSD cards.

    For my Sandisk Extreme (60/40) 32GB MicroSD, it takes about 10 seconds to switch a game.
    So I think they're not fast enough.
    I would like to recommend Industrial SLC MicroSDs or at least Sandisk Extreme Pro (95/95).

    Definitely sd card Op.
    Sandisk sucks for this purpose. Pickup a PnY card and you will be looking at 5 seconds tops.
    I tested this.

    With my sandisk class 10 ( I think 30 MBps ) , it tooks around 10 seconds or less.
    But usually what I did just pressed those tiny blue button, and see the world around me
    before back to this virtual world called "game". Time flies so fast :)

    Are you sure you got an original SanDisk product ?
    With SanDisk Extreme (60 MB/s), I have always 7.70 seconds between any game switching (any game size).

    Twenty-two seconds is a ridiculous number. Get any class 10 and you will be looking at 10 seconds tops.
