Downloaded software problem....

#1Shuo_RagnarokPosted 7/15/2011 4:14:28 AM
Alright, I had my 3DS in sleep mode for a few hours, and I had already downloaded some videos as well as the Netflix app. When I opened my 3DS, all of my downloaded stuff is gone, and when I try to go into the eShop, I get an error message that tells me to hold the power button to turn it off, etc. When I turn the system off and back on, I see a split-second flash of the downloaded software icons on my home menu before they disappear again, and when I go into the data management menu, there's nothing on my SD card. What's going on and how do I fix this?

try your sd card in your pc, or check that the contacts are clean

Sounds like it might be a broken and/or fake SD card. Where did you get your SD card?

1st, im sorry for your troubles there-if that'd happened to me, i'd be pissed too. Anyway, try removing the SD card, wiping down the pins on it & reinsert; maybe the 3DS just couldnt read the card.

Make sure the SD Card isn't locked too.

It might be the SD card then, as the internet browser seems to run fine so far, and I can get into the eShop now that I took the card out. I was running a 4GB Sansa card instead of the 2GB Toshiba card the system came with. I'm going to run the default card and see if that might help.
