    I edited my profile in nand and decided to boot into emunand after that. Upon selecting the Nintendo DS proflie button, I was greeted with a notification saying "An error has occurred, forcing the software to close. The system will now restart. (Unsaved data may be lost.)"

    After which, I keep my (big) sd card could not be detected at all, with the error appearing"Could not detect an SD card." I have tried reformatting the SD card and it definitely works fine on my PC. Even tried another SD card from my camera but that didn't work either. When I set the card on write protection mode though, the setting is detected by the 3ds and the standard notification relating to write protection appears. After closing the notification, the same "Could not detect an SD card" notification appears.

    Anyone knows what I can try? I'm on a 3dsxl unfortunately, so changing the sdcard slot is out of the question. I have tried pasting paper and tape to the sd card, as well as opening the case to identify and correct low pins. Nothing has worked thus far. Done a full data reset on the 3ds as well.

    I get that occasionally and usually sorted by just removing it, powering off the console and reinserted it, then.powering it on

    ....also just for the record, editing the.profile on the 3ds removes the exploit, so you would need to rerun the bluecard. Installer too

    Ahh thanks for the prompt reply, shall try that. Hope it works ><.

    Edit.. Reinserting the sdcard does not seem to work. Tried it quite a few times. Anyone else has any ideas?

    I did quite a lot more searching and some dude said that a firmware update fixed his. I'm on 4.4 now. Gonna try to go to 4.5 in a bit....

    Did you try re-installing the exploit yet like was suggested previously? If you've already updated to 4.5 though, did that work for you?

    My friend's sdcard from his 3ds was detected but not the 2 I own. Have tried re-installing the exploit but that didn't work. Updating to 4.5 didn't work either. No idea what I did wrong but I guess i'll try getting a new sdcard next.

    Edit: Decided to give it another shot, and reformatted the card again. This time using eraseus 10, selecting to format it to a 'logical drive' instead of the default, 'primary drive'. And lo and behold.... it worked.

    I don't know why using the default formatting program by microsoft didn't work but it just didn't. Even changing the default allocation size didn't help. In any case, I hope this posts helps people who end up facing similar torment when their sdcard screws up on them.

    Also, many thanks to the 2 guys who tried to help out. Might have given up before reaching this stage if not for your posts. :lol:

    Because the default formatting tools in Windows suck.

    Hahaha maybe I should add that formating the card to a 'primary drive' with eraseus didn't work either.
