    Hi guys I let you know what kind of a flashcard stargate3ds is and the firm behind it. Also the reseller r43ds nl is worthless. 9 months I used the card with problems and I wanted to refund or get a new card for free under warranty circumstances but I don't get any kind of service.


    I uploaded the vjdeo to youtube. Showing the continuous red light problem. ​



    I already contacted stargate3ds

    I opened the gamecard to clean up the contacts of the sd and the gamecard it self. It didn't solve anything. I looked for technical malfunctions but didn't found any.

    I read online that I must cut the edge of the sd card to fix the problem but then again the sd card wouldn't work with other sd card readers.

    I ordered the card the first time it came out. I always had problems with it but I did rewrite the ds mode section over and over that solved the problem temporarily. I think it helped to remove the sd card and luckily it connected the good way for a few days. Now it remains broken with a single red continues light. The gamecard doesn't fit well anymore after I opened up.

    I tried everything using the usb cable when the gamecard is in the 3ds. Starting up without sd card and run the ds mode... There came a loading screen with the word loading and three dots in the upperleft corner but I waited for 10 minutes it didn't get passed after the loading screen.

    I tried a different sd card that didn't help either.

    My common sense is that I had bad luck from the beginning and tought that a software update would bug out the issues and problems. But the gamecard itself is faulty and from the first batch it is no wonder why it doesn't work. The sitenews of stargate3ds stated that the build quality from the newest gamecard is far better then before now at the time. They also dropped the price because of this.

    So please send me a working gamecard. I don't need a sd card but I would prefer a working gamecard so that I can tell people around me that uses 3ds often that it's working perfectly and that the service is very good.

    Looking forward to a nice answer from your side or from stargate3ds self. ​
    I tried again a lot of stuff. I tried using my brothers 3ds and it's still the same problem. I tried pushing beneath the gamecard when it's in.

    It worked!!!

    But it's still not handy. I looked on the contact points stripes below of the gamecard its self. They are damaged horribly. The contact points of the stargate3ds are weak!

    If you push beneath the card the contact points are coming more closely to the reading points of the card unit of the 3ds.

    So please mister give me my money back or get me a different card instead of the stargate3ds or get me a new stargate3ds with improved build quality. That last one is probabluly not he best solution.

    The build quality of stargate3ds is very very bad! The card is to thick and it slides bad. It is damaging the contact points in time.

    Hello there! Your product has been in use for too long and has exceeded our shelf life. We have no way to give you a new one.​

    I buyed the card 27 november 2017. The release was in November that year. So be aware!

    I believe you void the warranty if there was any if you open up the cart and mess around with. The resellers don't give a crap about this, they only want your money, should just straight up stick with CFW instead of Stargate, Sky3ds etc.

    I had the red light problem before opening but then again it was a card from the first batch with the white buttons. First batch is trial and error right?

    You should probably stop using it and just follow the 3ds.hacks.guide to set up CFW like @migles suggested. It is on Blue light without the card inside?

    It doesn't make good contact with the 3ds then it's green then red then purple blue. I can install custom firmware with it but then again it's safer to buy a cheap card and then install custom firmware.

    Just do the Seedminer $2 dollars method, cheapest among the one that cost money, then again it depends on your system firmware, low firmware you might have a free entrypoint to cfw.

    I installed custom firmware seedminers method but I still like the fast way of setting up games to play.

    Flashcard method. But cfw delivers more fun so I recommend everyone to install cfw instead of buying less quality flashcards.

    Stargate is just a straight up scam on it's own, any retailer is just banking off that scam. What your really need an R4i Gold Plus and to install a free CFW
    Don't support the Gateway team, they didn't support Gateway and they haven't supported Stargate. They are a crap team with crap products.

    Indeed but I prefer the sky3ds+ because of the nds compatibility. But for now I don't need a flashcard because I have everything running with custom firmware!

    The NDS compatibility would be nice if it wasn't broken after installing a CFW past 11.8
