    Just inserted my SD card into my Mac and got a peculiar authopen popup.

    authopen is trying to open the chosen file.
    Type your password to allow this.

    Yes, I was rushed and wasn't sure what it was but inputted my password and now the SD card won't mount on the mac (or PC). Nor will it mount in my N3DS so I've got no boot.

    Any thoughts.

    I've got all the necessary files backed up from my A9LH install so I'm ready to go that route if need be.

    Sorry, but by the sound of it, you might need a new SD.

    But I do have a tenancy to assume the worst. And everyone could always use a chance to upgrade.

    If you get a new one, just copy the files from the backup.

    Try mounting it in a Linux or Windows computer. If that works, then try to boot your N3DS with it
    EDIT; and I noticed the parenthesis. Derp.
    If you have no access to the SD files, then you'll have to get a new card and put luma files on the root.. this also ends up making Saves KIA, but at least the system will boot

    He has a backup so he can just paste that onto his new card.

    Thanks for the help. I reformatted and copied everything back over. Earlier I was using the sd card reader to burn a Chrome OS recovery card and the chrome extension must have still open. When I put my 3ds card in I think it messed (I erred by not reading the popup) up the cards permissions. Ah well. Don't click on popups!

    Is its security such dangerous that destroy your SD when you missed typing password etc?
