Topic: Help wanted with a deleted 3ds file

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


Hey everyone,
I offered a friend to try to fix his n3dsxl.
I didn't work, like completely didn't work. Didn't even turn on.
So I took the SDcard out, and it was completely empty.
I know there should be an OS on there. Can anybody tell me where to get these files, or even better can anyone provide me them ?

Thanks in advance.



The OS is not stored in the SD card. A functioning 3DS will create a file system in the SD card, but not the entire OS itself.

If your friends 3DS is not working I'd recommend contacting Nintendo or replacing it.

It should turn on even without a SD card inserted. But as said before contact Nintendo support.



@JuliusS Sure I can provide you with them just post your email address where I can contact you at. After you wire me the money to the place provided I will send you a copy.
