Welp, I don't really know where this thread is supposed to go, so I'll post the problem here.

Ok, here it goes: Everything was beautiful. My GATEWAY worked perfectly, the emuNAND did as well. I even got to install some things here and there in that emuNAND. Until one day, the "by-everyone-feared" message appeared telling me that programmes could not be displayed since my 3DS was unable to access the SD card. Of course, it goes without saying that my PC could read it perfectly. After trying to have it repaired and sending it to someone who wasn't Nintendo (I'm not that dumb), I was told that the hardware itself didn't have any kind of problem and that the issue originated from me trying to hack the 3DS. Weird, since I succeeded.

So that's it. I've tried looking for a solution, but there wasn't such a thing. I just wanted to know if there's an actual solution, apart from "blow and keep trying" or "buy another 3DS".

Doesn't seem to be working. And, yeah, I formatted the system earlier this day, but that didn't work either.

It would appear to me that the SD-card slot is busted permanently. I don't think it was because of you hacking it. Maybe it just died for being too old/bad quality/secondhand 3ds/etc.

Try for someone to replace the card slot and see if it reads your card (or any card) then.

A little ago a friend of mine had me updating his entry points for luma 3ds and the sd slot spring broke for apparently no reason. Just by ejecting the card. The card still works, but it's only because the 3ds slot cover pushes the card in as far as it needs to go. (if i were to open it mid-play, everything would crash as the card would be ejected).

I was said that the SD card reader was fine, though I still believe it is the problem. I mean, there are no reports of the same thing happening to anyone at all, just because the 3DS was "hacked", right? Well, if I am going to buy a new 3DS, I might as well try to open the old one and replace the slot.

No, it's not that. It was already FAT32. I've tried to format it again just in case, but it didn't work.

Yeah, I'm having the same problem too. My normal SD card that I have works fine, but my SDXC 64 gb card doesn't work. It's formatted to FAT32 as well.

I’ve already done those very two things multiple times, and still no luck.

Do you have any other SD cards to try out on your 3DS? Maybe your SD reader is bad?

Try using MiniTool Partition Wizard free edition to Delete Partition , Convert GPT to MBR Disk , Rebuild MBR , and Create New Partition (FAT32 + 32 KB cluster size) on your spare or blank card.

Use the archive in this post to build a custom firmware test setup.

My original SD card works, but I'll try that.
