    Help! I recently followed the post on using smash selector and by downloading the files (mod packs too) and putting them on the SD card, my A9LH Luma 11.4 OLD 3DS XL started acting weird. My themes started to glitch out (changing theme won't change bgm) couldn't use freeshop (it would boot then it would try to download enctitlekeys,bin then exit the app) then I went to system settings then data management then it told me "SD Card Management Information has been Corrupted. Reset now? Note: All Software and Save Data will be erased" the options were "Cancel and Reset." I'm scared because I don't want to lose my games (I'm fine with redownloading) but I have the problem with save data. I don't want to restart all my games from scratch because of all the progress I've made. I can't even back up save data using JKSM or FBI or by using the 3DS' save data backup feature. I think my 3DS can't Delete/Add anymore files. I know that it is not on lock. I have tried formatting and putting files back on but it cannot format either. My SD Card is Lexar 64GB FAT32 microSD. I restarted and the SD Card management information is not corrupted "apparently" because the pop-up saying so doesn't pop up anymore. But I still cannot add or delete files or launch freeshop (I had to download games over and over and over and over and I don't wanna get banned because of the recent ban wave by launching e-shop) I can still play games though. Do I have to factory reset my entire 3DS (would it even work considering it can't delete files) or would I have to get a new SD Card? (fukin smash selector) PLEASE HELP! :hateit::unsure::sad::(

    You wouldn't get banned for opening the eShop. Try removing the SD Card and reinserting it. Make sure it isn't write-protected. Can you access the files on a PC?

    I know it isn't write protected I went crazy and checked 20 (billion) times.
    I removed the SD card and inserted it multiple times.
    Games are still launchable, but games that rely on SD Card files crash
    and Yes, I can access file on PC but when I add a file then go to another folder the file disappears, but when I delete a file and go to another folder it reappears.
    I want this problem to be fixed because I'm going to have to get files onto the SD card someday, I just created NTR cheat plugins and I want them on the SD card badly.

    Can you move files onto the computer? If you can, perform a full scale backup of EVERYTHING on the SD Card and then format it. After formatting, move the backup back onto the SD Card and see if it works.

    Did you even read the post? I told you I can't even format. But I was able to copy my files from my SD Card to my Computer

    How can you not format an SD Card? Does your PC return an error? If you can't format, I think the SD Card is fucked. At least you can backup your files and move them to a new card.

    Tried 3 times
    "Windows was unable to complete the format"
    When I got the SD Card by default, it was exFAT I downloaded a third party partition tool. I used that to convert the format to FAT32. Nothing happened until 4 months later when I decided to use Smash Selector...

    PSA: Don't use Smash Selector.
    Well, you need a new SD Card. At least you could back up your files.

    That's all I really cared about: backing everything up but yeah thanks. If I have the same problem with the new SD Card, I will return to this thread, but for now. I leave it open because some people have may the same problem and the poll, the poll will always stay open, it's because I mention you if I have the problem because there is a probability you could skip by this new thread I would make (if I closed this one)
