Hacking Trouble switching games on Blue Button Sky3DS

The first game loads up fine and is playable, but pressing the blue button does nothing. I did manage to get the games to cycle, but not the normal way. These are the steps I need to take to cycle games:

1. With the N3DS powered on at the main menu and the Sky3DS cart inside, hold the blue button.
2. Still holding the blue button, push the cart in to eject it, decrease the pressure until the cart appears to be in its original position.
3. The blue light starts blinking and the game cycles after a few seconds.
4. Stop pushing on the cart and let it eject.
5. Push the cart back in and play.

The problem is this is tedious, might wear out the flashcart and button, and doesn't always work and so it may take many tries just to cycle one game. Any suggestions?

I just got a Black N3DS, a blue button Sky3DS, and a Samsung 32GB EVO Class 10 Micro SDHC. I bought the Sky3DS from modchipsdirect.com. The sd card I got at Amazon. I'm using the latest DiskWriter software (v106b5 - 01/17/15) and template file (02/16/15) from sky3ds.com. I have CRC32 checked all my 3DS roms against the database at 3ds.essh.co.

edit: I just tested with a different micro sd card, and the exact same thing happens.

    I rather enjoy a life of taking it easy. I haven't reached that life yet though.
