    Hi I want to move my emunand to another sd card. I have created a new emunand on this new card, but I want to keep my current emunand. If I use HxD, how many sections do I need to copy and write over from the old sd card to the new sd card to move over my current emunand completely?

    Thanks for helping

    It can't detect any of your cards containing the emunands?

    Ive got the same problem too, i had an old 3DS XL for emunand which I retired as a fully updated one after i got a newer XL on 4.4. The emunand partition should just stay there, right? But emunand tool doesn't read my partition either.

    I also had a problem at first with the tool not seeing my SD card. I plugged my SD into another laptops card reader and it worked (The Emunand tool could now see it) and I successfully backed up my emunand. Try another card reader. After that I imagine all you have to do is use the tool to inject your backup emunand into your new SD.

    You can extract it manually with Hex workshop or maybe HxD but there are 2 different sizes.
    Toshiba NAND has 1931264 sectors and Samsung NAND has 1953792.

    Emunand starts from sector 1 of the SD card.

    Not in your case. NAND is unique to each individual 3DS, emulated or not. You need to redo you emuNAND on your new 3DS, you can't use the one from the old unit.

    EmuNAND Tool not recognizing the partition though, is another problem. I'd try the new card reader idea.

    Yes, i was aware they aren't interchangeable. I wanted to extract it for another purpose, mainly to differentiate a bunch of 4.5 NAND images I have on my PC which i didnt label correctly. Silly me :cry:
