    The one time I had problems with a SD card was when it was a fake. It was precisely a 256 one, Samsung, and looked very good, but it was a fake. I recommend you send it back to where you bought it, ask a refund and try to buy a new one. Because that`s what I did and when I received the new and original one, it worked immediatly and without problems.

    My question is what is the "official retailer". You can still end up with a fake card even from a place like Amazon if you order from the wrong seller.

    As a matter of fact, the fake one I received was from Amazon itself. But they also replaced it with a new and original. Yeah, it sucks that it has to be a "luck" contest.

    Formatted with windows.

    Tried another SD card (although not correctly formatted)

    Will order a small sd card to see of the slot is broken or the sd card is.

    And the results? It's quite hard to provide help without you giving us results. If they didn't work, check partition table (MBR or GPT). That's what a lot of people seem to forget.

    Regardless of you saying it's official retailer, did you test the SD card with F3X (https://github.com/insidegui/F3X/releases)? You will have to backup all contents on it first, as testing it will reformat it. Regardless of your thoughts on authenticity, you should run that program and test your card.

    Maybe it's only not compatible with your card. Maybe because its a copy or have some failure. If it work ok in others systems use it and buy another for your switch from another seller.

    SD cards must meet and comply with the SD Association standards. This ensures all SD products work with one another, given the same version and form factor. It's not possible for a card to be incompatible. What is possible is for the card's file-system to be incompatible, but even then, the system would still recognize it and ask to format it.

    Other failures is what myself and others have thought, which is why I am pleading OP to test the card, and not rely on the reputation of the seller. Even cards shipped and sold by Amazon.com have been fakes. It's definitely a possibility.

    Yup. Tried 3 different sd cards. None of them are recognised, so the sd slot is most likely broken. Also did a factory reset.

    Now should I repair it myself or send it back? Might receive a non hackable version.

    It's super easy to replace if you can get the part. Just have to remove 10 screws to remove the back cover and then another screw to unplug the micro sd daughter board. Then you just plug the new one in and replace the screws.
    Though I would try formatting your cards with something other than a Mac first to make sure it's not that.
    IMO that shouldn't make the card completely not show up on the switch but it's worth a shot

    It's really easy to do.

    You will also need a spcial tri-point screwdriver to remove 4 of the back case screws (multiple options on amazon).

    Before you buy the part, if you have a triwing take it apart and unseat and re-seat the microsd ribbon connector. It is a very small connector so its possible it popped loose. If you don't have a triwing then sure, buy the part + triwing and see. You can always return.

    Glad to see replacing the SD slot fixed the problem. I had a feeling that was the case given multiple cards weren't reading.
    So about that $25 PayPal XD
