    I have a 3ds XL and recently got a New 3ds XL. I used 3 different sd cards (a 4gb, an 8 gb, and a 16 gb) with my old 3ds, and i assumed i could do the same on the new. When i first got the n3ds, i transferred the 4 gb card to the 4 gb micro sd that came with the n3ds (i used the pc method). It told me i had to wait 7 days for another transfer (which i think is pretty dumb), so i waited a week and then tried to transfer my 16 gb card to a 16 gb micro sd. when the transfer was complete, i powered on my n3ds to find that none of my games were available, and my home menu layout reverted to the default. I have several saves that i want to recover from my 16 gb card (Pokemon AS, Pokemon X, Pokemon Sun, Sm4sh, etc.), and need help figuring out how to do it. I already tried homebrew using soundhax to try to use a save manager to recover my saves, but it of course didn't recognize my games. I have a backup of the original 16 gb before transfer, and the 16 gb micro sd after transfer. the games from my 4 gb card are also unplayable. I just wanted a way to make my games usable on my n3ds, and can send screenshots or any more needed information about my situation (sorry for wall of text).
