    Hello, So out of nowhere i left my 3ds closed on the homescreen for a couple of hours and I opened and I tried to switch a game by pressing the blue button but nothing happened. There was no blue lights flashing or anything. I tried holding it for 5 seconds and nothing happened. The game wouldn't switch and the roms are okay as I was playing and switching roms fine in the morning. I tried turning of my ds ,switching sd cards and everything but when I did that my sky3ds flashed and reversed to the first game on my sd card. Please help

    im not sure this going fix your problem try it

    try this remove the micro sd card in your sky3ds card and power on your 3ds system with out the sky3ds inside now put it in you 3ds system you will see the blue led blink 3 time or flashing

    now eject you sky3ds card then put in the micro sd card in sky3ds card then put back in your 3ds system then see if you can switch through all the game now

    this here is with micro sd card in side shy3ds card
    or try this when you power on the the 3ds system without the sky3ds in side
    when you put in the sky3ds in your 3ds system when it click in hold the button for 5 second you see no led light then eject the sky3ds card then put it back then see if you can switch through all the game now

    Yes, and I think your SKY3DS may be a defective one. Save corruptions, inability to read roms and now this you could have had used the 30-day return guarantee and bought a gateway.

    IDK how that works, supposedly there's a 30 day return policy if you are unsatisfied. Now you gotta see your reseller will honor it.

    They will most likely give you a replacement, best to let them know your card is defective and after they give you an RMA number ask if you can have it replaced for another brand if possible.

    Not if you're on latest firmware. Gateway will be useless in that case. 9.2 or lower is ok.

    I did and everything was working in the morning. Mayby it broke because it was on the home screen where the game is shown for too long. It was there charging while closed on the homescreen for 5 hours
