    So, i'm attemtping a dsiware, did the transfer from the o3ds a9lh to the new 3ds, with PC based transfer, so.... when the transfer finished, i removed my sd card from my o3ds and then placed it on the new(first i removed the sd it already had)

    Then i proceeded to restart the system and i got this: This message appears when the process couldn't complete, even after turning off and back on the console -continue-

    Use a computer to erase all data from this console microSD before copying the data from source console SD -back- -continue-

    Insert the sd card with the source console data in this console and turn it on -confirm instructions-

    Confirm that you have understood the instructions before turning off the console and extract the microSD
    (´I translated all of this from spanish, but i hope you know this)

    So..... what should I do? Should i insert my source sd card in my pc and then copy all of that to a safe location and then proceed to insert the other sd card and transfer to that from the safe location?

    Like... the hacked.sav is in the source sd lol, why would it tell me to delete

    I just don't know how to proceed, (not sure on what to do)

    Hope you can help me , i don't want to screw it up!

    Why would you do a PC based transfer? I just did the dsiware downgrade last night and I used plailects guide step by step with no errors.
    I literally didn't have a single problem downgrading once I figured out what to do.

    Although I'm a noob I'm just curious as to why you would do a pc based transfer when it is proven that doing a transfer from system to system directly is the method you will see in every guide and video tutorial.

    Also throughout the whole dsiware downgrading process I never once swapped the sd cards. I kept the sd cards to each individual o3ds and never put the original cfw 3ds sd card into my stock ds (DS # 2 in the guide).

    I can't help you with your problem but you should really stick to guides if you don't understand the risks of doing it differently.

    I already solved it, well i was following an spanish video tutorial, and he recommended us to do that...
    I preferred the tutorial over the plailect's guide i don't know why lol

    So what i did was just what i tought, backup each SD into different folders in my PC, erase all the data from the target SD, then proceed to copy the source 3ds backup to the target sd, and then inserted it back.

    I already have my new3ds downgraded :)
