    I did a nand backup of 9.0 then updated to 9.9. I ripped the system nand but shortly after I was unable to get the BSOD to show format on the computer and have not been able to write back.

    I don't get why all of a sudden when I was able to r/w 9.0 and not I can't even get the PC to see the n3ds

    Check your wiring on nand hardmod also what card reader you using? N3ds are extremely picky I have ordered 7 readers so far and none work.

    They can be a pain in the butt sometimes, i know mine are at times. Some days my 3ds's, pc, card reader will play nice together, others they won't, it's really weird.

    And the time you spent buying 7 readers you could have read a little more on here and bought one that is known to work with pretty much all 3ds's. (there's a handful) :P But yes, n3ds in particular are pretty damn picky compared to o3ds.

    Highly doubt it considering I just wrote my 9.0 backup back to my 9.9 n3ds just now. :)

    Try doing things in this order

    Connect the reader to the 3ds
    Plug the reader into your pc's SD slot
    Power on the 3DS
    Did you get blue screen? good
    Go to "this pc" and see if a removable disk is there that you can't open (DO NOT FORMAT IT)
    If not unplug the adapter from the PC not the 3DS and plug it back in.
    Still don't see it? Go to your device manager and scan for hardware changes (or just shut down windows)
    If it does show up just op win32diskimager and write your NAND to the removable disk
    Once it's finished safely eject the removable disk unplug the adapter and power down using the power button.

    Just a heads up. He has had his mod for about a year now and has the proper reader. I know it's hard to assess someones skill level here, but Ronhero has is by no means a noob. Not too sure if he tried the scan for hardware changes, though (the only non beginner solution offered).

    Sometimes rebooting the computer helps to show the nand.

    Yes but I'm in Australia and was trying all local shops and readers I could find. I have ordered a correct one but still in postage. All models listed are US / UK. Besides only spent $3 to $5 on readers each so far. Found a solution for AUS moders in the N3ds Nand hardmod forum

    If your PC is Windows, you can also try uninstalling/reinstalling the card reader from Device Manager. Or trying a different USB port all together. Windows likes to install drivers for USB devices on a per-port basis and I never really understood why.

    Nowhere. You either have it from your own backup or you don't. Any other console's NAND backup is useless to you.

    So? Nothing we can do about that.

    Try to exchange it for a different one if you can. Otherwise stick to the limited options you still have with such firmware.

    I have an ANKER AR200 for my N3DS. It doesn't seem to work on my O3DS. For my O3DS, I use a Vivitar 50-in-1 reader. That one doesn't work on N3DS.
