    Wow, sorry. I was not paying enough attention. What program did you use to format your sd? Maybe try again with fat32 64kb clusters.

    This happened to me with my new micro sd card. The weird thing is, I have A9LH, so the micro SD was working to the extent that A9LH would boot, but then on the menu none of the games would load and I'd get the error that the SD Card is not accessible. Its a 200GB Micro SD card, and I thought, shit, this card must not be compatible for some reason, I had formatted it correctly to fat32, but something was wrong. I was going to return the card when I decided to just format the card again, I opened the formatting program and deleted the entire partition, after that I formatted the card to fat32 again, literally changing nothing from the time I had tried before, and then for whatever reason my micro sd card loaded including all the games from my backup that I copied over that were not loading for whatever reason before. Point is, sometimes you just got reformat, even if you did nothing wrong.

    How much access do you have to the card on the pc, can you read and writes files to it normally? Use something like SD Formatter to format the SD to ntfs and make sure you can read and write to it, then reformat to ntfs, and then gui format to fat 32

    Is it possible to return or get a replacement from where you got the card?

    Yea it is really weird, I've never had an issue like this so it's hard to recommend a solution lol what brand and class is the SD? Do you have access to another 3ds that's stock?

    16GB microSDHC Class 10, just like "stock" 4GB microSD card from the box with nintendo. No unfortunately not...

    NO XDD format do nothing, nothing changes in 3ds when i format, on pc or laptop, using usb adapter for microsd or sd adapter.
