    Hi everyone, I recently installed A9LH + Luma and everything was ok, till today, I copied all files from 32 gb micro sd to 64, and now 3ds acting like there is no micro ds card (blue light blink for a second and 3ds turning off). I put old 32 gb card back again and it is working fine. What can it be? I tried to reconfig luma by deleting /luma/config.bin from SD card, but it didn't work, I can't even go to those menus (Select, Start, X, Y).
    Thanks

    Are you still using EmuNand or did you move EmuNand to SysNand?

    Also, do you have arm9loaderhax.bin on the root of your 64gb card, as well as the /luma/ folder? Is your 64gb card formatted as FAT32?

    Between here and there
    Try inserting your old SD first and then get it out to copy everything open.

    I'm using SysNAND, arm9loaderhax.bin in the root of sd, luma folder with: payloads, config, firmware. It's a new micro sd, so I just quick formated it, so not sure about FAT32, will try to remormat it now.

    It's probably been formatted as ExFAT, Windows won't format drives larger than 32GB to FAT32 so you need a 3rd party tool like the official SD Formatter.

    You mean load it with old micro sd and then change micro sd without shutting down 3ds?

    1. Hold Y while turning on the 3DS to boot into EmuNAND9
    2. press Select, and eject your current card
    3. Insert your new SD, and press B to go back to the main menu
    4. Go to SD Format Options
    5. Format SD (no EmuNAND)
    6. Eject SD card, and copy contents from old SD to new SD.

    It works!!! Micro sd really was ExFAT, that's why 3ds didn't see it. I didn't find how to format it to FAT32 with SD Formatter, but Emunand9 did it well. Thanks everybody for help!

    For future reference: To format an SD card that is 32GB or bigger you need an extra tool. The advised one is EasUS Partition Manager. Its available to download for free on their website. FAT32 is required for the 3ds to work.

    Ummm.... Don't use EaseUS partition manager, unless you want to do it all over again at a later point. That tools is known to lead to a problematic file system format that won't work in 3DS homebrew. Use EmuNAND9 to correctly format SD cards (any size) for your 3DS.
