    I accidentally inserted my gateway microsd into my android, the android said it was corrupt; when I took it out, gateway would not recognize it and displayed a filesystem error
    how do i fix this?

    Both FAT32 and exfat work with Gateway I believe. It's just that Fat32 can't have 4 GB rom files stored on it. So if you aren't the type to trim your roms (Which I'd recommend anyways), then you'll have to go with exfat. There's only like 3-4 (4 GB) games out there anyways. And all of them CAN be trimmed.

    To even format your card to fat32, you'll need a special program. I forgot what it was though.

    Formatting it in windows should give you the option to format it as exfat by default

    The saves will be on your sd inside 3ds. On the gateway sd You will have to format and start fresh if partition showing as RAW. Then copy roms back on it

    Seems like it deleted the partition for some reason. The data is still there, so the partition can be recovered.

    do i need to have the exact rom the save came from, or can i just decrypt it and add it to a .cia?
    edit: for the savs on the big sd card

    You can put a .sav in a .cia using save data filer I think. I'm pretty sure need a cfw other than gateway node to do it though.
