    Hi guys

    I am trying to move all my files from my old SD to a new, bigger one. After the process though none of my contents show up when I boot the console, and even the card reader in the console doesn't seem to be detecting any file in the SD (the led just turns on briefly then turns off)

    This is the steps I have followed:
    1. In Windows 7 enabled to show Hidden Files and Folders, disabled Hide protected system files
    2. Copied all the files from my old SD to my hard drive
    3. Plugged in my new SD card (Kingston 32 GB Micro SD XC)
    4. Formatted to exFAT the new card using the Windows 7 stock formatting utility, used quick formatting option
    5. Pasted all the old files
    6. Inserted the new SD in my Vita
    7. Get disappointed, because it doesn't work.....
    What have I done wrong, please help!

    I used this video guide, the only way for me to get it right was to exactly follow it (don't copy files into your hard drive, but connect the Vita and copy them straight from the console into your new SD). Hope it helps:

    Maybe you didn’t put the zzfile in the new card before formatting it again

    afaik, the zzfile isn't actually needed. all it does is force a format of a single partition , because the vita won't read the card if there's more than one partition.
