Hi, I’m after a little help please, not very clued up on the Nintendo switch and how it all works, I have a old switch and 2 sd cards with paid for games on, I have just purchased the new improved battery switch and wanting to put my sd cards in but it’s saying I can’t use it in my new switch as it’s been used on another. But the thing is I want to sell my old switch and reset it all to factory settings so nobody can get my details or my already purchased games, so how can I get my sd card to work on my new switch, I’ve tried to log in on my new one but I can’t even manage that, sorry for all the questions but I’m feeling frustrated now as looks like I’ll be lumbered with 2 switch consoles now but only need the one. All help in simple terms will be most appreciated

Thanks, so if I just set up the family thing on my old switch or from my new one? So I’m taking it that non of my sd card will be lost this way, and I’ll be able to then reset my old console so I can sell it, otherwise I’ll be sending the new one back if I can resolve this. Thanks for your help
