Yes, save everything thats on the card. And use FAT32 32kbs cluter size with the format.

So the general steps are as follows (or at least from what I've seen). Take everything off the SD Card onto my PC. Format the SD Card (am I allowed to use the built in formatter that came with my OS?) Put it in while it's empty, let the 3DS do what it needs to do with it, put it back in my PC, copy everything back on and put it back into my 3DS?

I'm just asking now so that I don't fudge anything up.

If you have a mac, i would look at using something other than the built in one. It seems it does something odd to the card. You format when the sd is empty. Once thats complete, you will then put everything back on it, and then put back into the 3ds.

I am using a windows machine.

I can't seem to move the Nintendo 3DS folder off of the SD Card?





I read online about this having corrupted data and I remember a Mario Party Star Rush on my 3DS not opening, deleting it starting this entire situation. If I can find its title ID within the Nintendo 3DS folder and delete it, will anything happen?

Corrupted star rush directory. Do I just delete it?

i would remove that, and check the empty card with https://3ds.hacks.guide/h2testw-(windows).html

I suggest using Roadkil's Unstoppable Copier when copying everything off your SD card; it is the best way to be sure, especially if files on your card might be corrupted.

Once the card is formatted, test it with h2testw. If h2testw finds problems, then get a new card – and be sure to properly format it and test it with h2testw, too.

Do NOT insert the card (or any other card) back into your 3DS while it is empty. Instead, just copy the files you backed up to the SD card again. Sometimes just doing this will solve the problem.

If you still have problems afterwards, I believe a CTRTransfer (Type D9) is the recommended procedure. See https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-godmode9-scripts-megathread.482150/page-9#post-8550543 (referenced here among numerous other threads).

And never delete anything in FBI that you do not recognize.


That isn't FBI, it's the directory for Mario Party Star Rush, TitleID and all. Inside of it is completely corrupted as well as the fact that windows picks it up with a chkdsk command.



I am 99% sure that this corrupted file is the root of my problems and most likely getting rid of it one way or another will fix it.



One more thing. I also tried CTRTransfer to no avail.

I edited my post while your were replying since I realized that line was not especially relevant.

That might have been the case in the beginning, but now that you've tried to delete stuff in Data Management, you may have new problems.

Agreed. Should I remove the corrupted folder and THEN export the Nintendo 3DS folder? As I can't do much otherwise.

I already said what you should do: copy everything off with Unstoppable Copier, format, test, and copy everything back. I don't know what you mean by "export".

I found a make-shift way to load the games that the 3DS still recognizes. Replace Download Play with HBMenu. Go into FBI > Titles and load the game you want

Sounds like your game tickets aren't showing up. Get faketik and put in the 3DS folder on your SD card. Open Homebrew menu on your 3DS and use faketik to make your games showup.

Wait how do I empty the card if I can't delete the Nintendo 3DS folder?
By formatting the card. Formatting will definitely get rid of everything.

I also tried CTRTransfer to no avail.
Did you try the procedure in the thread that I linked to? What exactly did you do?
