I have a pixel that died on my upper screen yesterday.

I went to the Nintendo support website for repairs.

When I complete all of the information and get my shipping label, there is a request to send in my SD card with my 3DS.

This is new to me. I sent in my regular 3DS when I had one because the R trigger stopped working.

When I sent that in, it said to remove all accessories, games, stylus, SD card.

Anyone know why N wants the SD card now?

Do they want to know what my musical tastes are?

Maybe they want to see my porn?

just lie and say you lost it. or better yet, just swap it with a 258mb card you have lying around. it doesn't matter if its THE card, just put any old card in.

The aren't fixing your 3DS: they are sending you a new one. After they system transfer your data they were probably just going to plop your SD card into the new one and send it back. You don't have to send it in if you don't want to.

No they aren't sending you a "new" one, they'll be sending you a refurb. If you don't get your own unit back it'll be a refurb. They don't send out new units.

I'm guessing they didn't ask for the memory card last time because it was before they released the system transfer tool? Now that everyone knows you can transfer your content they want your SD so they can do it themselves.

Oh, nononononono.
I already sent in my 3DS twice. And each time I got mine back. Proof: the scratches on the left are still there (from when I dropped it), and the serial code is also identical (which I have noted down in case my data gets lost).

It's just in case they have to replace the system or otherwise reset it and they would need to system transfer. Usually, they don't have to.

I'm setting up a repaid myself, and I got the same request. I've set up four different repairs before (three for DSi and one for 3DS), and this is the first time they asked for the SD card.

I was wondering though: why DO they need the SD card? If it were for a transfer, they'd simply be transferring the account, so that your software could be accessed from the new system. Unless I'm missing something, you don't need the SD card for that.

back up your save data to your computer just in case.
i think it'd be funny if you put porn on your 3ds and see if the porn is still on your system when you get it back,lol.
