    I successfully created a nand backup and am planning to format emunand. However, I have a bunch of eshop games which I bought and downloaded. Would backing up the folder containing these games onto my comp and then putting them back to my reformated sd card work?

    I just formated the emunand and moved everything back, but the eshop games won't show up. Did I do something wrong.

    hmm... did you restart the 3ds before you put the files back?
    i did it today, i dumped my nand. backed up all the sd card stuff on my computer.
    then, i formatted emunand. as soon as it was done, i powered off. i copied the files back to the sd card.
    then i started up, and everything was fine.

    i think if you start up with a blank sd card, then the 3ds will use a different folder id, and... well, i don't know so much about it all to be honest, i have only done it one or two times.
    just, that above is how i did it myself today, and it was fine.
    maybe if you did start the 3ds with a blank sd card and let it create the folders itself, i think it will still be ok. just copy them back in the same place, inside the new folder in 'Nintendo 3DS'
