    Actually I have 2 gb Sd card for my 3DS, but i have a new 8gb for play Smash.
    I have a question, is there any way to copy the emunand, registered friends and play coin and more?

    i don't want to put again friends code, update again the emunand, etc

    Thanks!:lol:

    Over your shoulder
    I'm pretty sure swapping SD cards is a matter of copying the contents from one card to another.

    I think, when have Gateway's emunand, no.
    because the emunand it's unrecognizable

    Use that tool to get the emunand off the old SD card. Then format emunand on the new SD card (using the GW launcher menu) and use that tool again to inject the emunand (from the old SD card) onto the new card

    Just use a USB image tool to extract an image from one card to the other, essentially cloning the entire SD partitions and everything.

    I think you loose extra space doing this.
    There is another step to resize partition to newer SD Card, isn't it ?

    Yes, you just extend the rest of the partition to fill the unused space, but that's like a 2 second job in Gparted. :P

    So then why recommend something that requires an (albeit, 2-second) extra step when the emuNAND Tool is easier and designed for exactly this type of thing? I mean no disrespect, by the way. I'm legit interested :P

    yeah, plus telling people to extend the partition onto the "unused space" would also include the emunand partition space, as that is also classed as unused space, i think emunand tool is the easiest noob friendly approach, plus dumping the whole card means you end up with XGB space on your computer used even if you had actually only used 2MB of space on the SD card, then there is people wanting to go to a smaller SD card....that would be another pain in the butt to get done, where as emunand tool works for all scenarios

    I just prefer a 100% 1:1 copy of my data, that's all. Just preference really. :)

    you can just get a 4GB, they are very cheap now anyway, and you can use emunand tool to transfer your existing emunand to the new SD card
