Hi i recently bought the Super mario edition of 3ds xl (Not New 3ds xl) its working great as the previous owner has R4 already inside with tons of games. I have many original DS cards and 5 original 3ds cards as well. I tested DS cards and they are working like a charm. But unfortunately the game is not detecting any 3ds card. Its really weird. I tried cleaning and everything but nothing happened.. As the 3ds cards are already new. So can anyone figure out this weird issue. As all DS cards and R4 are working perfectly so it means there is no issue in the card slot. But only with all 3ds game cards.

I don't know anything about "R4"s thus there is not much point in me responding.

Unless I state otherwise, assume by default everything I am saying is merely an opinion.

Format the systen via settings also r4 cards are considered bad...

Also via settings update the unit to the latest updated firmware.

Well i formated my 3ds xl but still no luck. If there is some region issue then i have mostly UK and EU version DS games which are working instantly on my US version 3ds xl. But these 3ds UK version games are not even detected by the syatem and even no error message or anything. Just Blank
