R4 3DS cards, like with all other products, can come in as either defective or fake. This is actually pretty common since most, if not all, R4 3DS cards can only be bought online.
Now, people have been asking me, “what do I do if I’ve bought a bad R4 3DS card.” Well, bad is a relative term. Do you mean bad as defective? Or you meant it as a term to indicate that you’ve bought a fake R4 3DS card?
Whatever the case may be, in this article, I will talk about what you can do if you’ve bought a bad R4 3DS card.
- What to Do If You’ve got a Defective R4 3DS Card. This is probably one of the most common issues a person faces when they’ve ordered an R4 3DS card. Usually, the R4 3DS card that they get are defective and does not work as intended. This is probably due to the shipping of the card but it could also mean that the R4 3DS card was already defective before it was even shipped. If you’ve got a defective R4 3DS card, the best thing you should do is contact the supplier of the R4 3DS card, explain your case, and have them ship back a new, working R4 3DS card. This is part of your rights as a consumer and you can do so if you’re given a defective product.
- What to Do if the R4 3DS Card I’ve Bought Doesn’t Work? This next issue is another common one but you solve this one with a different approach. Instead of thinking that the R4 3DS card is defective, look at it from a different perspective. What I mean is that does it work, or at least, run on your Nintendo 3DS? If it does run but it says that it is not supported, then it means that you only need to update its kernel/firmware. To do this, head on over to the R4 3DS card manufacturer’s website and download the latest kernel/firmware update for the particular card. Once updated, the R4 3DS card should work on your Nintendo 3DS now.
- What to Do if You’ve got a fake R4 3DS card? Again, this is also a pretty normal occurrence. Since most, if not all, R4 3DS cards are bought online, there is a huge chance that the card that will be shipped to you is a fake one. The best thing you can do is have the card shipped back to the manufacturer and ask for the real thing. Furthermore, before buying any R4 3DS card, make sure to look at some reviews first. If some people will say that a particular R4 3DS card is fake or bad, then do not buy it. Always look at the reviews first.
