Alright so as the title says all of my downloaded titles, both legit and non-legit, have completely disappeared from my 3ds's home menu. I have no idea how this happened or why, and I can't seem to find a fix for it on google or any mentions of people having the same problem before, but I may just be wording my searches wrong. All of the titles' data and saves are still on my SD card, and when I check my software in settings all of them show up, but they aren't visible or accessible in the home menu.

Before this happened I had just uninstalled a game's update and dlc with FBI. It brought up an error when I tried to delete the dlc, but when I refreshed FBI it was gone. Then I booted back into the home menu, and all of my titles were gone, even FBI. I'm using Luma with a9lh. Here's what my home screen currently looks like:

I've never had any problems with Luma before like this, so I apologize if there's a simple fix for this and I just wasn't aware of it. Any help would be appreciated.

It must be a file corrupted.
Check your SD card and search for the issue.
Well I'm dumb, there really was a super simple fix. You were right, the dlc I tried to delete was the corrupted file. I went into the nintendo 3ds folder in my sd card and deleted it manually, and everything's back to normal now.

Thanks for the help! Not sure if I should request this thread to be deleted now.

Keep it up for others. They may have the same issue and this could possibly be their fix.

If you installed or uninstalled a cia but got an error, that's probably the file you need to look for. Go to data management in the settings too and delete any "?" files in your softwares/exdata/dlc.
there aint any other then the one i deleted that started this whole thing

Okay... Well how did you get the problem in the first place and how did you try to solve it? What I just told you was how I solved my problem, so I'm not sure if I can help you if that didn't work for you.

Did you delete the file through freeshop or through your settings? And where did you look for the corrupted file in your SD card?

So in your settings you checked through the software, extra data, and downloadable content? And you also checked through all of these folders in your sd card to see if there was a corrupted file?

If you already did that then I really don't know how else to help. You might have to format your SD card, unfortunately.
