    I copied all of the files from my FAT32 32GB micro sd card that worked with arm9 into my 128GB exFAT micro sd card and it starts for 1 second and then shuts off. Help? The same files I am copying worked on a 4GB micro sd.

    Format to Fat32, the 3ds can only read that. There are programs on you can install on your computer that can do that.

    The SD needs to be FAT32. Use EaseUS Partition Manager to format it to FAT32 with 64KB Cluster

    As the others said, format it to FAT32. Just make sure you select a 64k cluster, it will make everything faster :P

    EDIT: :ph34r:

    @Feel is Gone, assuming you're using Windows, use "guiformat.exe" (google that with double quotes, first post).
    Easiest way of formatting anything as FAT32.

    EDIT: pick 32k in the options, make sure you select the correct "drive letter".

    No, he should pick 64k. It makes everything faster, from booting to loading times.

    Well, I hope I have really helped you.
    This is the program of choice when I need to format FAT32. So easy, no college degree in "FAT32 formatting" or anything related. Just pop in your external storage, start the program, select the drive letter and FORMAT :P

    True... Thx for the tip!

    Why all of these complicated steps? Just format the card for emuNAND with Decrypt9 then remove the emuNAND partition.

    He had to have set up a9lh with a card other than this one. You can hotswap cards in the D9 menu; it even instructs you to when making an emunand.

    To make clear what @LinkSoraZelda means, if you get into emunand9 you can press select to eject your SD, you can then insert the new SD and go to SD format options.

    It's more of a hassle to swap cards, format and create an emunand, then erase it than plugging it into a conputer and using guiformat.

    sure but you'll probably already have emunand9 on your old sdcard than having to find and download guiformat and choose the right sector size

    You can format for fat32 using EmuNAND9 without setting up and then deleting an emunand...
