    Hey guys!,
    I have been trying to copy my CFW EmuNand over from my 4GB SD to my 32GB MicroSD with SD Adapter to use it, to store my EmuNand.
    However, when trying to use the Gateway Launcher and make an EmuNand by pressing "Format EmuNand" nothing happens.
    It just seems to freeze not even showing any progress, and I dont know what to do.
    According to Nintendo MicroSD Cards should work just fine with a Adapter, but maybe its some kind of Gateway problem, that I am not aware of?

    microsd adapters don't have anything inside them, theyre just metal pins in a shell. I would check the microsd on your computer, its possible you have a fake/bad card. It should work.

    Currently testing to read the SYSNAND with a Trancsend Adapter and the 32GB MicroSD Card, seems awfully slow tho.
    I even compared the speed of the 4GB Card and the 32GB one, and they were close to the same speeds:
    16.4mb/s Read
    4.35mb/s Write 4GB Card

    13.5mb/s Read
    4.30mb/s Write 32GB Card

    still feels much slower on the 32GB Card, gonna test writing EmuNAND again after reading SYSNAND is finished

    Im using a 32gb micro sd with an adapter and its works perfect. Maybe your card might be counterfeit.

    Yeah its prolly cause its just a NoName Card even tho that card works perfectly fine in my Smartphone it doesnt seem to like the "Format Emumand" Option.
    Guess the only other way for me would be either waiting for N1ghty to update his EmuNAND tool where i can create a EmuNAND from the PC or getting another MicroSD Card...
    What kind of MicroSD card do you guys recommend?

    I'd try wiping it with HDD Low Level format Tool and then formatting it to FAT32 again.

    Sandisk Ultra or Samsung evo series. Both work excellent, no problems with these brands.

    Just format any SD card to FAT32. I have 64Gb worked perfectly.
