    I copied over the contents of my current MicroSD card to my new 64GB one I just bought, it has ReiNAND on it. And now when I put the new MicroSD card in, it doesn't read it on the New 3DS. It just loads it to the main 3DS menu giving a message saying it couldn't detect a MicroSD card.

    The MicroSD is a Kingston MicroSD XC1 (Class 10).

    You need to format the new sd card to have the hidden emunand partition then make a backup of your current emunand and inject it to the new card.

    I just realized it's also exFAT, could that be why?

    Format it as FAT32 (note: all data on SD will be erase)

    Yes but as stated Reinand is outdated and certain games won't work with it. (Namely Sun/Moon carts and acnl welcome amiibo)

    No. If you just want another CFW you just replace some files. If you want the latest and best hack you can continue from where you left off (your current setup)

    Sorry to take this off-topic, I think I have menuhax. I don't recall there ever being A9LH on my SD, so would the process be long then?
