Hello,

as the title says my SD Card got somehow fucked up when I ejected it from the PC... (And yes, I did safe eject)

So now it neither works with the 3DS, which doesnt even boot since the needed files are missing i guess, and the PC only tells me that It needs to be formatted....

As you probably can imagine I am everything but amused about this since I had tons of games installed which would all be lost if I format the SD-Card...

Has anybody had this problem too already and maybe knows a way to restore the files on the SD-Card so that I dont have to put in hours of work again ?

Thanks in advance.

If it's happened some times, maybe it's not as good as you think. Make weekly or at least monthly backups after formatting so you won't have such a big headache

Try a data recovery program like Recuva (free) or GetDataBack (paid but you can find it if you know where to look, offers more options and seems to recover more data)
