Sooo, I'm not the brightest person and the 3DS gave me my first SD card, when I first when to put stuff onto my computer from my SD card I formatted everything not knowing what that meant... So yea it deleted everything. Anywaysss the problem now is I am trying to put music onto my 3DS. So I took the SD card and put it into my computer and click "Open files and view them" then I took all my music and put it in a folder on the SD card called "Music" after that I took the SD card and put it back in my 3DS. Yet there is nothing changed about my 3DS/SD/Music. Why isn't the music going onto 3DS sound at all and how can I fix this? Thanks.

The music folder is not in any other folder, it's right next to the DCIM and the Nintendo 3DS folders. And Idk how to check the music type. Also in 3DS sound anything that use to be under "Record and Edit sounds" is now gone. Such as "Auto Play" and others, does this matter? The music folder is just 1 folder with a lot of music in it, it's not 8 deep.

To check the music type, on your computer right click on a song and click properties in the dropdown box. Look for "Type of File: ____________" in the window that opens. If they are showing that they are MP3 or AAC, then your 3DS should be able to play them.
You mentioning that other things were there before, has me wondering about your card's condition though. I have an SD card that is corrupted, yet my photo printer can still read the images off of the card. Nothing else can do anything with it however. I am wondering if something similar may be happening with your SD card. If you can, try putting the card in a device other than your 3DS or computer, and see if you can access anything on it. For instance, if you have pictures saved to your card and you have a Wii, try to view photos off of the card using the Wii.

Everything else is working fine and I can view photos and stuff from other devices, only thing missing is anything in 3DS sound that was below record and edit sounds, that got deleted when I formatted my SD card by mistake. I'm wondering if I have to somehow get that stuff back. The type of file says (.wma). What does that mean?
6. Posted: Fri 6th Jan 2012 18:55 GMT
wma is Windows Media Audio. Your going to need to convert your files to either AAC or MP3. I know iTunes can convert files to AAC (it may do MP3 as well, I can't remember). The solution to your problem may be as simple (though admittedly tedious) as converting your files.
EDIT: I forgot to mention that AAC files will show up as MPEG-4 audio layer file (.m4a) in the properties window.

Just learned something new about the 3DS player: it will only recognize 100 tracks in a single folder. If you have more than that, it simply ignores them.
9. Posted: Sat 7th Jan 2012 04:29 GMT
Okay, when my friend comes over he'll help me convert them. Thanks guys. Also I have like 200 tracks in 1 folder, should I make another music folder for half of them?
10. Posted: Sat 7th Jan 2012 05:51 GMT
From what I learned today, you'll have to in order to play all of the tracks. I had one folder with 160-ish songs in it, but the 3DS would only display 100 of them. Hope it goes well for you.

It's called:1. Get a SD card that works w/ your 3DS2. Does your computer's SD card reader & writer work (my living room computer has trouble writing stuff)3. Make a new folder in Windows Explorer (not that half-decent Internet Explorer 9)4. Copy AAC music files to it (iTunes uses it, just make sure it's not copy protected, that won't work)5. Pop it in your 3DS.6. Viola! It should work.Update:P.S. Never use the 3DS or DCIM folders (not sure on DCIM, better safe than sorry). Instructions w/ Windows 7 in mind. If you use 7 like me, there should be a bar telling you the file type. mp3 and mp4 files work too.

OK i need some help.I took the SD card out of my 3DS(the one that originally came with the system) and i wanted to put some music on it,so i copied the music onto the SD card that i wanted to put onto the 3DS,but when i put the SD card back into my 3DS,only a select few songs showed up out of all the many songs i copied.All of the songs are in the mp3 format so they should be compatible,but apparently not.So if someone can help me with this issue that would be great!!! Thank you!!
