    Is it a brand new SD Card? Is it possibly over 32gb? Did you format it to FAT32?

    Use this tool if it's brand new.

    Edit: Use 64kb cluster, it's the last option in the dropdown.

    More details please. Is this an SD card that you have been using with your 3DS or a new one? What model 3DS?

    best to post a screenshot of the folder contents.

    Possible SD problems with 3DS-A9LH:
    1. Wrong format
    2. Missing files in the SD required to boot A9LH
    3. Incompatible SD card
    4. Faulty Micro SD adapter(even if it works on a laptop/PC it does not guarantee that it'll work with your 3DS)
    5. Faulty 3DS SD card slot.
