Hello community!
I just followed the guide www.3ds.guide and installed everything which is necessary to install a CFW. Everything just worked fine but when I run Luma Updater I get the error: card removed. Anyone can give me a fast solution? :/

Your SD card has issues. You need to check it for bad sectors. For now, don't use the Luma Updater download the boot.firm file manually from the Github and manually put it on your SD card with an adapter. When your console can't find the SD card, something is either wrong with the card or the reader itself. It's usually the former.

I checked my sd card before I followed the guide (with h2testw) and everything was fine. Can I copy all files from sd card to pc and just format it and copy back after?

Yep. If it's not the card then it could just be a glitch, electronics are never perfect. I'd just update Luma manually. If you already tested the card I wouldn't waste my time formatting it, I would guess it was just a hiccup with the updater then.

This happens to me every now and then. Take out your SD Card, blow in it like you would a game cart, and put it back in. Then, restart.

Mine didn't have issues :unsure:

From this thread:
Did you ever get around to replacing your SD card slot reader?

***

If you're 100% sure your SD card isn't problem, you're left with two other possibilities:

(1) Something is wrong hardware wise (ie, the reader or another component, like loose WiFi module)

- or -

(2) Messed up software (the 3DS firmware, which is fixable with CTRTransfer).

No I really didn't replace my reader since I made that thread and I tried another SD to no avail
I think i'll take your word and send my 3ds to a local gameshop to see if they can get its hardware fixed
