The Nintendo Switch allows you to store data on an SD card. However, the card is bound to the respective console. If you want to put it into another switch and then use it, you first have to delete some data. In addition, reports about WiFi problems make the round.
The Nintendo Switch released last week was delivered with a slot for SD cards, on which you can store your data. As you can see, Nintendo does not allow you to use an SD card with multiple switch consoles. The contents can only be accessed from the switch in which the card was used for the first time. If you want to use the card with another console, you must first delete the switch data.
That’s what the editors of Polygon found out in an attempt. The Nintendo Switch displayed the following warning. “The microSD card is used by another Nintendo Switch console, or was used on this console before it was initialized. Remove the Nintendo Switch data from the microSD card to use on this console.”
The deletion of the data can be started with a click on the button below the reference text. Interesting is the list of the data that remain on the map. “Game states, screen shots, and other non-Nintendo Switch data will not be deleted. You can remove the microSD card if you do not want to use it with this console.”
Curious is that there is so far no possibility to pack the scores on an SD card. We have already reported. Apparently this feature seems to have been (planned).
Players report on WiFi problems
Elsewhere, many players complain about a bad WiFi signal. In this context, the complaint is about increased download times in the eShop. According to reports, some owners do not have two out of three bars (visible in the upper right corner) – even if they are in close proximity to the router.
In the Nintendo Switch, a “Broadcom BCM4356” chip, which supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi with the frequencies 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. According to Nintendo, it is recommended for a strong WiFi signal to operate the console approximately three to five meters away from the router. This does not always seem to help.
