    What format do you use on your SD Card? if your 32 GB card is fat32 and the new one is exfat you have to install the exfat update first

    I have a 256gb card working fine. did nothing special other than ensuring I had exfat update installed.

    Also consider the possibility of a fake 256GB. Depending where you got it from. It's worthwhile to run some tests.

    Does the card work on pc?
    to be sure you could format the 32 gb card to exfat.. if its not working the driver is missing

    My 32gb is exfst and runs fine. As for the 256gb it picks up in my pc and in the switch in normal mode and shows what it should

    My way of looking at it.... The nicer I am the better the chance of a solution.

    Hmm.. if the 32 gb exfat works i think your 256gb card is bad

    The card works with the switch just fine. It just doesn't want to initiate when booting to custom firmware like hetake and reinx

    Uhh.. maybe try replacing your SD files for heckate? Maybe you lost something or something got corrupted.

    make sure you have a genuine sd card, not a fake one

    h2testw is a good piece of software to check whether it's a fake one or not

    I got a 256gb yesterday and it works flawlessly, just like the previous card I used
