Hey, good morning, afternoon or nights.

I have this 4GB Lexar SD Card, which my 3DS doesn't appear to recognize. Following guides I saw that I just had to put all of the content of the original SD card into the new one, and I did it, but my 3DS remain black in both screens, also, when I pull out the SD card my console boots normally.

What can I do?

"( ) Enable loading external FIRMs and modules
( ) Enable game patching
( )Show NAND or user string in System Setting
( )Show GBA boot screen in patched AGB_FIRM
( )Set developer UNITINFO
( )Disable Arm11 exception handlers"

This is without the SD card

Unless there is something wrong with the SD card reader, the SD card need to be formatted as FAT32, Primary partition and 32kb cluster, use Minitool Partition Wizard to partition it.

I'm out of ideas.

Perhaps you might wanna look into purchasing a new micro SD card, they're cheap enough these days; no need to go through all this hassle to get such a small card to work with the 3DS.

That is the cluster size that is recommended to use on the 3DS. most people have bigger SD card than 2GB, the cluster size affects how the sd card shows the available space and used, like on a PS Vita wrong cluster size show the wrong amount of available space.
