    I know there is a 3DS to CIA converter, but is there possibly a CIA to 3DS converter? I don't really like CIA's as I have a small internal SD card, so I'm wondering if there is a CIA to 3DS converter as I have some games that were only released as CIA's. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Nope. You'd have to regenerate information that's stripped out of the game during the conversion to .cia (basically only the game itself is actually kept intact in .cia, while there's a few other chunks of data that exist in a .3ds)

    If we could, then Sky3DS would be able to play eShop games.

    Best bet? Consider investing in a 64-128GB mSD or SD depending on which system you use. You won't regret it. Make sure it's class 10.

    we can, just there is no simple tool do this.
    and the games wouldn't work on sky3ds

    Awww... even if they were converted to .3DS? Oh wait... there ARE eShop versions in .3DS already. So yeah. No eShop games. Dang.

    Is there a link to how to convert CIA to .3DS?
