    I don't own a Sky3ds, so idk if there are certain hoops you have to jump through to get the sd to read properly... But it sounds like it might be your carts problem and not the mSDs.

    I use a 64gb ultra 10 Sandisk in my Gateway w/o problems, friend uses a 32gb ultra 10 Sandisk in his Sky3ds w/o issue as well.

    64 GB is just insane with a Sky3DS. I have a Sandisk Extreme 32 GB and I have barely even scratched the surface of the 3DS games that I wanna play. Scrolling through them is a fucking PITA. I can't even imagine what it would be like with more storage space.

    Does your flashcart have a red button or a blue button?

    Your Sandisk card may be fake or maybe you're not inserting it properly into the flashcart (the microSD slot on the Sky3DS isn't spring-loaded).

    PS: Your choice of thread title is very poor. I thought you were asking about what brand to choose for your Sky3DS, not that some games display the message that the cartridge was pulled out... Make better choices next time if you want people to help you. This may not attract any people that were in the same situation (and that can offer an advice).

    Wait wait. Do games auto-cycle for you without pressing button?

    Yes when I Start sky3ds the seventh one are ok I push blue button and skip to the next one.
    After the seventh games sky3ds auto-cycle and only stop when it came back to the first one.

    Oh wow, another one of these cases.
    Its not your microsd, you have bad Sky3ds card. Its red button pcb (1st version) in blue button case, return it to your seller for exchange.

    If it autocycles its red version.
    You can run autocycling games, when game logo appears on screen press and hold button on sky3ds for 10 seconds. Autocycling should stop, LED will blink on cart and you can start this game BUT you will get "save corrupted message" in every autocycling game.
    Try to run some games using this method, if they will start with "save corrupted" - you have red version for sure.

    Posting pictures won't help, red and blue versions have the same pcb.
    If you can't return it to seller you can run most games on it by using cracktool to patch games to CARD2...but its not recommended, you should replace it if you can.

    If you want to know of the card is fake run it through h2testw with a write+verify test.

    possible add 11 roms and see if you can scroll through all 11 successfully one at a time, roms you know 100% work and match your region.

    sounds like a bad cart, could be a red one in a blue case.
