    Hey,
    i want to switch to a new SD card.
    From a 64 GB SD card to a 64GB micro SD card from Sandisk.
    I formated the new SD with guiformat to fat 32 and copied everything over from the old SD.

    However when i try to power on the DS the blue light just flashes for one second and nothing else happens.

    I previously had a EmuNand but i moved that to SysNand.
    Any Idea what i could do?
    3DS is with newest A9LH and Luma

    A similar issue is happening to me. I'll try what's been posted above with the latest arm8loaderhax.bin, see if I get any results.

    lol! Just a typo.

    Well...I just tried that & nothing happened. Still get the flashing light.

    Is a9lh picky with what name you pick for the new SD...does it have to be the same name, by any chance? Because I don't know what else to think is the issue for this.

    Doesn't seem to be working...going to back everything up again and reformat the SD card, but this time I'll try the quick format for FAT32.

    See if it works after that. If that doesn't work...I don't know what else to do. :/

    Same for me.
    I formated it with emunand on the 3DS itself and now it works :)

    Well...I wish I could my 3DS right about now, so I could try that? Anybody know a good SD card PC formatter for Emunand/Sysnand+a9lh 3DSes? lol!

    If you cant just try guiformat with another sd card reader/ PC. Since the software works for most i guess my problem was either pc or card reader.

    Alright just fixed it! Used '3DS Multi EmuNAND Creator' to properly format the SD so it could be read by a9lh properly...

    ...But in order to even format with the program, you have to opt-in for an EmuNAND partition, there's not a simple 'Format drive'. But you can remove the EmuNAND partition by simply using the Remove NAND option after you set it up & it proceeds to reformatting it again while removing the EmuNAND partition. It takes a few extra (unnecessary) steps, but it works! Can't complain! :D

    You can find the '3DS Multi EmuNAND Creator' program on the thread below.

    Cheers! :D
