Long story short, I have a new emunand I made, and then I added all files from my old emunand back on the SD card, so they are on the SD card but the games won't show up on the main screen or anything. Is there anyway to re-install them from those files? Or anyway to make them showup? I don't have all the .nsp files unfortunatly, and I really don't want to have to re-download all those games if I can help it. I have the old emunand backed up, so I could go back to using it again temporarily if I need to backup files or something, but I don't want to use the old emunand as a permanent solutuon because it doesn't have the same account on it and I want to use the same account on both emunand and sysnand, and because my controllers are synced to my emunand and sysnand, but on my old emunand I had to switch them back and forth. I could also make a new emunand if I needed to if there is a way to add the games in that way somehow? I'm not sure.

Thanks in advanced!

There is no way to convert the files other than simply transferring them from/to your sd card, so if it's not working you will likely have to download the nsps again, or figure out why it's not
working.

They are broken down into smaller files just random numbers and letters in the Nintendo folder when they get installed, they can't be changed back to nsps.

The more I think about it the more it makes sense that your games don't work on the new emunand unfortunately. Because each emunand is like a different console, and if you installed games on one it won't read them on a different one. IMO there's nothing you can do but redownload the games, or maybe go back to the old emunand.

If you download the games again I would recommend keeping the nsps you download this time like on a spare hard drive that way you will have them if something else comes up.

Come on man I already explained to you you cannot. That's exactly what I told you about the files being broken down and they can't be reformed to nsp. Just download them again.

Your options are
1. redownload the games again
2. go back to your old emunand

Those are your only options

So, just to clarify...
When I create an emuNAND, I will have to reinstall all games that were on the SD card, correct?

UPDATE:
So when I first tried to copy the Nintendo folder over it, the games said re-download.
Apparently something didn't copy right.
I copied everything in the folder again, overwriting any files and the games work fine now!
