My switch was having problems with reading my sd card and would shut down in the middle of a game. I replaced my sd card reader but it still wont load pass the boot.dat middle finger. When I put the sd card in my other switch it reads the boot.dat no problem Any help would be great. Also sending it somewhere to be fixed would be an option if its available.

Has the Switch been opened at all?

If you can open up the Switch, check the SD card flex cable.

If this doesn't fix the problem and if SD cards can't even be read in OFW, you might want to consider replacing the SD card reader.
