Currently, to transfer files back and forth to your Nintendo Switch, you either have to remove/insert your MicroSD between your console and PC, or you have to enable WiFi and use an FTP server to transfer files, but now scene developer @ischeinkman has started working on NX-USB
which allows to you access your Switch on your PC with just a simple handy-dandy USB cable connected between your Switch and PC, and bang you can start transferring files back & forth.
OFFICIAL GITHub Project Page: --> https://github.com/ischeinkman/Nx-Usb/releases
NX-USB is composed of 2 parts: a "server" component that runs on the switch, called nxusb_server.nro, and a "client" component that runs each command on the computer.
- Grab a copy of nxusb_server.nro. This can either be done by building it yourself, or just by downloading it from the Releases page.
- Make sure that you have gotten nxusb_server.nro on to your Switch somewhere where it can be ran from.
- Find a valid client, which at this point is only possible by downloading Rust and building it yourself via cargo build -p client. At the moment, the client executable is just called client, so that is what we will be using to refer to it here, but this may change in the future.
- Connect the Switch to the computer via USB.
- Run nxusb_server.nro on the Switch.
- Use the client to transfer files between the computer and the switch:
- To "push" a file TO the Switch FROM the computer, use ./client --push [NEW PATH ON SWITCH] [EXISTING FILE ON COMPUTER].
- To "pull" a file FROM the Switch TO the computer, use ./client --pull [EXISTING FILE ON SWITCH] [NEW PATH ON COMPUTER]`
