    So my 3DS SD card now needs to be formatted after just copying one.bin file to it... WTF
    Is there a way to fix it without fucking up all the files it has a LOT of saves on it that I NEED.

    Being a smartass isn't helpful either. Try a different card reader. If that doesn't help there's a few things you can try in theory. (chkdsk, changing drive letter, some recovery programs) But in my experience its fucked if a different card reader doesn't work.

    There is really.

    What did you do before it happened. For example ejected it while the 3DS is still on, bad card reader, forcing inserting an SD Card whether it's in the 3DS or PC.

    EDIT: 777 posts, and it happened to be this post. lel.

    You guys will say that this is the reason bla bla bla but its not,
    I never do that eject safely way as to me it has never made a single difference in my 12 years of using PC's.

    I formatted it - To get the 3ds to boot I just need to add all the luma files right?
    EDIT: Which files do I need to copy into it for it to boot again?

    Always eject safely.... Somtimes you can still recover the files.
