    Hi all,

    So i managed to finally revive my sky3ds after countltess tries.... but I have encountered this problem now... usually 1/2 minute past the game screen, i get this error and i tried reburning rom with different disc writer versions and/or templates but its still giving me the problem.

    I tried my 3ds with retail game cards and all of them play fine...

    Any hints...

    From what I've read, if there's a sky issue, unless your sky card is pooped it usually lies on the memory card problem.

    Yup, I just posted in another thread I'll buy the sandisk extreme pro and see if I can minimize the game load times.

    a couple of tips about most flash cart devices especially ones with external storage support
    Clean the contacts of your card with rubbing alcohol
    use a can of compressed air(you can pick one up at a computer store some convenience stores carry them) to clean the SD Card slot
    clean the SD card with rubbing alcohol
    lastly use the panasonic sd formatter with the full(Overwrite) https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/index.html

    Did the SKY3DS flashed blue light while you put it in your 3ds? will it because of the defective sky3ds?

    i am wondering about it being defective but i d hate to do an exchange... My sky can read and show games in console so I feel like if it is it could only be problem with 1.) bad contacts on tf card slot or 2) bad microsd card... but i m using sandisk ultra c10 so damn it so annoying

    If you've already tried another mSD and its still happening then the next step is to ask for an rma. The longer you wait the shorter the window you have to do an rma, keep that in mind.

    problem is alrdy over rma period... but apparently i think i managed to fix the problem by inserting ap iece of paper along with my sd card... so indeed it was a tf card slot bad contact issue... i ll see if the seller can still give me exchange...

    Make sure they understand that the card is suppose to work without any modifications to the card and that if any modifications are required than you request an rma to get it replaced to ensure any future issues.
