    I am using a Gateway 3DS on a US original model 3DS XL with Sysnand version 9.2.0-20U and Emunand version 9.7.0-25U.

    I recently purchased a new micro SD card for my 3DS game dumps. I've had them backed up and stored on my laptop so that adding the roms to the new card would be a rather fast process. After copying my game dumps to the new micro SD card, many of them show up as white squares with no game title in the Gateway menu. I tried reformatting the micro SD card and starting over but got the same results.

    I tested the SD card to make sure it's legitimate, and it is, so that isn't the cause of the problem. Will I need to dump the roms all over again and start with fresh ones, or is something else up?

    Try copying the files one at a time and not all at once, starting with the ones that were showing as blank to test as you go. Tedious I know but it's probably the best way to find the problem.
    Copying a lot of them at once was a problem for me a while back.

    Blank tiles mean the game isn't there. Your SD card is fake.

    Thanks for all the help from everyone. It turns out that I just needed fresh copies of all my games.
    h2testw is what I used to verify that the SD card is real. Luckily, that wasn't the issue.
    Try fresh rom dumps of your games, that helped me.
