    Hey Temp, I'm having an pretty strange problem at the moment and I'm wondering if any of you guys could point me in the right direction? Here what I posted on Nintendo Teck support forums recently about it.

    If you guys have any idea's or anything please reply, every post helps haha
    Thanks, SMVB64

    I'm betting your SD card is either physically damaged, or corrupted in some way.

    Yeah, that what I'm thinking as well but it just odd that it works without any issues on 3DS, plus I'm able to add or remove files via PC. I wonder though, would it be possible to individually recover each save file?

    I think you should try to backup the SD card as an .img file, then mound the image you made and try to extract the saves that way.
