    You would have to copy your CFW/A9LH files over to the SD to make it work. But there shouldn't be any real harm swapping SD cards.
    Although it would make more sense to just buy a bigger SD card.

    Get a 64 gig, that's the sweet spot for 3DS. Make sure you format it as FAT32 before transferring the files. Assuming you're using updatedsysnand mode you can just transfer files from SD 1 to SD 2 without having to mess with emunand tool / usb image tool / whatnot else as you won't need the emunand partition anyway.

    Nothing on 3DS supports NTFS.

    You would think with all the kernel access and hacking we could change all that.

    Maybe, but there's no good reason the 3DS should support NTFS. Maybe ExFAT, but even then, all CIA files are smaller than 4GB so FAT32 isn't an issue.

    I know that, I just think having a system that supports more formats would let people choose what formats to use. Than again most people would probably go back to using Fat32 anyway.

    Each file system has its own advantages and disadvantages. Let's assume that we were given the ability to format our micro SD cards in any format. Now if we experience problems, the devs would have a hard time resolving said issue due to filesystem differences which could mean that he or she or they would have to rework everything from ground up just to make it working.
