    I lost all my games and saves from emunand. I made a backup luckily about a week ago. Can I recover the save files from the emunand.bin? I already injected the emunand that has the save files back to the 3ds.

    what you do mean you lost all your games and saves.

    You mean you corrupted you emunand?

    And you Restored an EMUnand.bin backup from a week before?

    You games and saves should be on then.


    But if its the Case of you deleted the Nintendo3DS folder then you screwed

    Yes everything got corrupted. But I have the Nintendo3DS Folder, and a backup of the emunand. The thing is when I try to put the Nintendo 3DS Folder onto my sd card. The sysnand folder, and emunand folder aren't being read by the 3ds. The 3DS just creates another folder for sysnand.

    Copy the folders over then Restore you Emunand from backup then boot emunand.

    Your backup should default to the original folder it had on boot unless contents are corrupted

    Okay! I now get into my emunand that has all my games. When I try to start one it says the sd card was removed. I'm assuming I have to reinstall them.

    yeah sounds like they got corrupted just hope your saves are fine, are you using a new SD card because, if you are using the old one that got corrupted could be why

    I'm using the same sd card. It has been formatted and is fine now. All my games were showing and only a select few launched, but I restarted the system and all the games vanished. I now have 5 folders on in my Nintendo 3DS Folder.

    if it corrupted once it will corrupt again at some point

    Thank you for helping. I checked my memory, and all the corrupted games were showing 0 bytes. I deleted those. After restarting all my other games showed up. My smash brothers save is gone, but I think that saves different than other games.


    Edit: What memory card do you recommend?

    Samsung or a Transcend

    if you go for larger than 32gb get samsung it supports a longer lifespan
