    Not sure if this is the right section but I will try anyway. I got 2 8gb sd cards since I had them laying around. I have some games on both of them. Recently I bought a 16 gb sd card since switching between sd cards became annoying. Now I want to merge both sd cards into 1. How can I do this? I tried drag and drop both sd cards (8 gb) into the 16 gb but some games don't appear. Any methode to let the games show in the home menu when merging the two sd cards. It's either the games from SD card 1 shows or the ones from SD card 2 shows.

    Make sure it's formatted as fat32. Make sure you're using the same NNID on both. Does it ask to replace any files? Or just to merge folders?

    I've A9LH
    I've used to same NNID on both SD cards. It asks to replace files. I click on replace all. I think it has to do with the titles.db. Not sure.

    Do both folders on the SD cards have the same numbers?

    Dump the tickets from both SD cards, then merge the backups and reinstall the tickets with FBI.
    Dumping tickets (place Decrypt9's arm9loaderhax.bin in SD:\Luma\payloads as x_Decrypt9.bin before following this):
    1. Open Decrypt9 from arm9loaderhax by holding (X) during boot
    2. Go to “Ticket/Titlekey Options”, then select “Ticket Dump (SysNAND)”
    3. Press (Select) to eject your SD card, then put it in your computer
    4. Delete all .tik files in the /files9/ folder that do not start with “00-“
      • If none start with “00-“, then just delete all of them
    When reinstalling the tickets with FBI, do NOT install content from CDN if prompted, as it will wipe your saves.

    So why not use JKSM to make backups of your games on one card. Copy everything from the other card to your new 16GB card. then re-install your games from the card you made your save back-ups from and use JKSM to import your saves back.
