    I was using my SD card in a camera and it got stolen. I've already bought a new SD card but I don't know what to do now. I've got CFW installed. Thanks

    Depends on what you installed before, if you were on A9LH use the arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of the SD card from the 7.0.5 release, if you were on Boot9Strap put the boot.firm on the root of the sd card and see if it boot. As for SD card format it FAT32, Primary, 32kb cluster. You should follow the finalizing setup once your system boot up.

    Okay, I've done that but the only issue is that it doesn't detect the SD card? Well, it reads the boot.firm and actually boots but the 3ds menu sais "software cant be shows" my old sd card was the exact same make.

    Well games you installed before won't show since it is not on the SD card, you can probably do a factory reset in the system setting as that doesn't remove cfw, and just reinstall game since you lost your old SD card.

    That's not the issue, the issue is that the 3ds is saying it can't read it. So it wont be able to read any .cia's I install (like fbi)

    Format your card again using Minitool Partition Wizard, if that doesn't resolve it, do a H2testw https://3ds.hacks.guide/h2testw-(windows).html

    I've done both of these.

    In MPW, what settings should I use?

    Also, the 3ds message is "Cannot display the software on the SD Card. The SD Card could not be accessed."

    On the SD card make sure the slider is in the top position not bottom, on the bottom it is write protected since it will be locked.
