SD card problem

#1Jamar95Posted 2/2/2013 6:54:59 PM
I had just recently bought a San disk 8GB SD card from best buy. I am trying to transfer the data between the two SD cards. When it is complete, I only see my DSi games and none of my 3ds. What should I do to fix that problem?

How are you transferring the data between cards?

Copy everything, as it is, on the original sd card to a folder on your pc. Then copy what is in that folder, as it is, to the new sd memory card. Don't copy the folder you made on your pc to the new memory card copy what is in that folder.

Are you copying EVERYTHING off the SD card, and not folders at a time?

It should work, as I've done it many times without issue.

I think I found out the problem. I had went to Nintendo support and it says two compatible SD or SDHC card. The default card is a SD and the one I bought was a SDHC. I believe they would have to be identical so I'll go back to bestbuy soon to return it. Also the DSi games are on the system memory and not the card

they don't have to be identical.

Any SD card will work as long as it's supported by the 3DS

I ended up blowing air into the port and the sd card and now everything is there. I guess I made myself look stupid when something simple like blowing air was hard to think of.
