Topic: Is it possible to copy cartridge games to the SD card?

Posts 1 to 7 of 7

I'm not trying to steal games. But these cartridges are tiny and I'm getting old. I'd just like to buy one big fat SD card, permanently mount it, and put everything on it. Without re-buying everything. Is this possible?
Note: I'm not interested in rooting or hacking the device. Just putting the cartridges I purchased on the SD card.

@jaimi
Buy the games digitally from e-shop.
You can put Switch digital download games into Micro SD Card.
But there is NO WAY to copy Physical cartridges to Micro SD Card.

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (99)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (90)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)

too bad nintendo doesn't let us have fun with the switch so much possibilites with the switch but they act like the device is theirs and they let you borrow it from them...

i really regret buying mine i thought homebrew and emulators were a thing on the switch but sadly mine is patched.. i remember how i modded my psp back in the days had loads of fun on it with emulators trying to get things working that should run on a psp stuff like that.

and i know people abuse this for running roms and stuff but common thats just a very small community that does this, and it kills so much fun just because they are scared to lose a littlebit of money.. u made 300 euro's on a overpriced glorified Mobile(thats what the switch is litteraly a mobile cpu chip with gpu) and they don't let us do what we want with it.. in my eyes thats censorship and i dont like that.

This is called IP and EULA rules.

Well they did change part of their perspective to let users do creative developments but they won't give you their software code that is their IP and how they make a living. So what you remember isn't how it goes because you think it should go.

It isn't censorship as you think. That is koolaid thinking. Again this comes back to IP and their protecting their patents. And this is their bread and butter. So it seems like you can't understand this to know why it is such.

I wish, but unfortunately, the answer is no. The only way to have all your games saved to internal memory is to buy them digitally.

You're free to do whatever you want with your Nintendo Switch. Hack it to your heart's content. Install all the emulators and homebrew and pirated software you want until your SD card is full. Just don't expect Nintendo to allow you to continue using their software and services if you do. I really don't see how Nintendo is the villain in that scenario.

Honestly, it seems like the Pyra or Pandora is more what you're looking for, but they're not cheap.
