    Have you tried slow format?

    Also I've seen Windows incorrectly report partition type. Have you used Rufus? Give it a try the last time I had a SD card issue formatting with Rufus fixed it.

    By working with other systems do you mean other switches?

    OK I'll take a wild guess.
    Did you buy the card on Ebay? If so, it's very very likely its a fake. Most of the time this is the case so please check your card with H2testw or Fakeflashtest.
    If this actually helped, just send me a 10$ eshop card and Ill jump naked around my block shouting out your name.

    Have you installed the firmware with ChoiDojourNX? Have you installed it with exFAT support?

    You may have a second partition on the card that messing up the switch's recognition of it.

    If you're on Windows, go to Disk Management, select your SD card, and look at how many partitions show up. If you've got more than one, delete them all and start over.

    I'm formatting with mac. Tried multiple programs. My mac and my camera recognize the card.

    In regular switch it just doesnt see any sd card. And when injecting failed to init SD card.


    Tried.

    Official retailer.

    Was officially updated to 6.2 so it has all the updates.

    Clean format everytime so no partitions.

    There is your problem, the switch doesnt play along an SD Card formatted with an MAC. Use bootcamp/Windows PC to format the SD Card and it will work flawless :)

    Make sure that it has an MBR partition table, not GPT.

    you can also try this in terminal:

    sudo chflags -R arch /Volumes/NAME OF YOUR SD CARD

    sudo dot_clean /Volumes/NAME OF YOUR SD Card (remove mac files)

    I found this somewhere a while ago, credits to that guy.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    If you have an android phone, maybe:

    ?

    So....did you actually mean you'll pay 25 Euros instead of dollhair$?

    Sucks for your fellow Europeans who get stuck with 'murrica bux; great for anyone living in the other 40% of the world (+/-% for those without internet access).

    format to ntfs, the switch will ask you to format to its standard (256GB will be exfat). if it still having the same issue > a fake sd I'm afraid of.

    Also thought I would ask, have you tried other sd cards to ensure it isn't the SD slot on your switch that is broken. I may have missed you saying you did because I only skimmed this thread
