    I recently received my Gateway 3DS and I am having issues with it. SPI Test/SPI Read Test fails.. booting NAND games like Pokemon works but other games receive a game cart removed error. Looks to be the same symptoms associated with the self diagnostic failures I have received.

    I have tried the following..
    Gateway Omega Firmware 2.1/2.2
    Gateway Test ROM
    Various SD cards
    Various microSD cards
    Panasonic SD Format utility
    Applying pressure via thin sheet(s) of paper

    I read the Gateway Test ROM can reset SPI but there doesn't seem to a be a option to? It seems to be for extended testing of the microSD card from what I can tell.

    Is the general consensus that I have a defective Gateway card? I ordered this from RealHotStuff..

    EDIT: Also tried fat/fat32/exfat along with a few different SD/microSD card readers.

    What are you formating your SD cards to? I use exfat but Fat32 works as well.

    Thanks for the reply, I guess my Gateway is faulty. I sent a e-mail to RHS so hopefully I can get a exchange. This is a brand new Gateway and it wasn't cheap :(
