    Swallowed up by the ocean!
    i downloaded a gmae cia of 1.43 gb and started to copy it to my 32 gb sd and after it was done i selected safely remove hardware to remove the sd card and it said that Generic volume cannot be stopped right now. I took it out anyway and now my 3ds is not working( turns off after the blue light) and the computer is not recognising the name prperly- it used to be emunand9 something whereas its now calling it removable disk (I) and is saying that t is not formatted,do you want to format it?
    What do i do? have i bricked? i used to have a9lh luma 3ds.
    thanks in advance!

    You corrupted your sd card. Never remove unless it says to safely remove. You'll have to start your sd card over from scratch. Also, next time it says do not remove because it couldn't be stopped, Try again.

    Nothing should be console specific so you would have start again and make sure to make backups regularly.

    Arm9lh will still be installed.

    There is no other way. Arm 9 hax is installed to the system itself I believe. So for that you'll just need the arm9loarderhax.bin file for your choice of CFW that supports it. If you made a back up of your sad card, then it wouldn't be so bad with copying everything back.

    What? Did you have a backup on your PC then delete it? Because thats the only way that would work.

    Then you will need to reinstall everything and put arm9loaderhax.bin at root.

    But your SD card is corrupted and you don't have a backup?

    It means the files are unusable and your SD card must be formated (deleted).

    Some recovery tools do work when cards are corrupted but I'm not sure I'd trust the integrity not completeness of said files. It's always worth trying though if he has saves he values.

    The only recovery software I really know of is Pandora Recovery, but I have no idea whether it'll work properly with a corrupted drive. Last time I used it was to recover files I cut/pasted. Have a Google, there's plenty of software out there, but I wouldn't hold out hope all your files will be the same as before.

    If you're lucky you will be able to recover a few files, but as long as one single file from any game is corrupted or missing, most probably the game will not boot (Maybe you will be able to extract the save with JKSaveManager even without the game not booting, at least you can try recovering the savefiles so you can inject them back after reinstalling the game). At least you are using arm9 and Updated Sysnand, this could have damaged an existing Emunand.

    There's a reason why there's safety remove and why Windows won't let you extract delicate devices while still in use. Make sure to properly take care of your SD from now on.
