So sd card was fine then get message unable to find sd card .Have tried different sd cards . Could the sd card reader be faulty ?

Error code is 2016-0641.

This is my main concern with the Switch. I always feel like constantly taking the sd card in and out is either gonna wear out the reader or the card itself. I really hope someone can implement usb transfer soon (ftp is ok but relatively slow).
You mean like mounting the sd card through usb as tegrarcmgui can do? Or memloader?

I used to worry about wearing out my microSD card reader too, with constantly taking it out and putting it back in, swapping XCI files and whatnot, and also started considering mounting my Switch instead via USB (because FTP is supposedly quite slow).

Then I learned that replacing the card reader is a solderless job, you literally just remove some screws, remove the old reader's ribbon cable, insert the new one into the connector, and screw everything back in.
And it's cheap to get a replacement too, like this one on Aliexpress:

Whereas replacing the USB port involves desoldering the old one and soldering in a new USB port... I definitely can't do something like that on my own.

I have this concern aswel. Beside SD port I am also concerned about the USB port (wear out) because I dock and charge it few times a day :unsure:

As it's in warranty and not banned I won't be attempting any fix. But after the warranty has expired ill definatley be attempting fixes .

The entire nsp/xci installer/loader should have network support. My guess is its not yet known how to do that .
