Let me start from the beginning. I put my 3ds Micro-sdhc into my PC so I could transfer over a .CIA of Bravely Default. While extracting from winrar to the SD, an error popped up saying that it didn't have enough room, probably, but it had more than enough.

So I tried extracting the game again and that's when things went sour, the program and the file window went unresponsive. I waited patiently for 15 minutes for a response but none would occur. I then ejected my SD card, with emunand and supposedly all my beloved, albeit recent, save data. An error happened saying that my SD might have a problem, so I plugged it BACK in and ran a check, all good, and transfer worked fine.

When I put it back into my 3DS, my sysNAND screen wouldn't pop-up the .cia's I had installed, and when I tried to load emunand, all I get is a black screen, pitch black. Tried 4 times now after, removing cards, shaking, blowing, power-cycling(obviously) and I still get nothing. I also tried backing up save data but I get the error FFFFFFFFFF.

Also, I have no back-up of emunand so if there isn't a fix then I'll just have to reinstall emunand and update again, BUT, if I must do that, I don't want to lose my BELOVED SAVE DATA, which amounts to several hours of starting tons of games. If there is a fix, or a way so I don't have to reformat my sd and install a fresh emunand, please let me know.

But at least, if I remove all the .sav files from the root of my SD card and put them on my PC, then format, and place them back on my fresh emunand SD, will it keep my saves? Also, other than a little Hatsune Miku 2, I don't have any .cia's installed I really truly care about, so I can lose all .cia saves if I have too.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and if possible, I'll appreciate the help immensely.

"an error popped up saying that it didn't have enough room" Sounds like a fake sd card
try running your cd card through h2testw you may need to format it though.

try backing up everything on the card to your pc format it and run h2testw on it

can i give you a tip in retrospect? dont extract anything directly to another device. the temp directory and device i/o running together can cause errors.

learned this the hard way in the days of decompressing iso's to flashcard for psp.

Also this just make a folder somewhere and organize your roms/cias and drag and drop what you need also clicking eject usb device on the bottom right of your screen when your done with files also helps

Yeah I know, I never did with psp wii ect... But it was working fine until now. I just really don't want to lose my save data now, I'm fine with formatting/installing a new emunand. I was reading about extracting the NAND and injecting into a fresh emunand, but I don't know if it'll work with a corrupted sd, though it doesn't say corrupted anywhere

Okay so, update, FUBAR. Ran h2testw and let it go on my 32gb sandisk microsdhc for 1 1/2 hours, got to 17.2 gigs lost and corrupted, though I did remove all my saves and emunand and I have since checked to make sure it all worked and YES!, didn't want to lose the lots of hours, though I will have to reinstall my themes and maybe, a couple, cia's but, yeah... I'm sending this piece of shit back to Sandisk, they'll send me another one I hope.

Currently downloading monster hunter 4 U demo on current eshop using emunand on a 4.2.0 3ds ^_^
