    Yes I looked at that, no guide though. I don't want to mess this up. Can you explain?

    Edit: I don't have an EmuNAND file apparently, so none of the options will work. Really starting to get me annoyed.

    Use EmuNAND9 to dump your EmuNAND. Move the backup (and all your other relevant files from the SD) to your computer. Swap to your new SD, have EmuNAND9 format it with an EmuNAND. Eject the SD, move the backed-up files and .bin backup of your EmuNAND to the new SD card. Re-insert, have EmuNAND9 restore the backed up EmuNAND.

    That's the basic idea.

    I can't do that. My current free space is only 500MB, the file won't create because it's too big.

    Move anything not absolutely necessary off of the SD card first, then. It might be a tight fit, but it should fit.

    Even my SD is only 1.88GB in size. Will this fit for sure? o.o

    I don't know if EmuNAND9 lets you make a min size backup or not. If it doesn't, use Decrypt9 to make the backup and make a min size backup. That's about 1.2GB on a N3DS.

    What's the option I click on in Decrypt9 to do this?

    Edit: Found it, had an outdated Decrypt9 so I didn't see the option. Going to try this now.

    Says that it can't find an EmuNAND file on the SD card. Should it be renamed to something specific for it to recognize it?

    I'm confused. What error did you get and what were you trying to do?

    Nevermind, got everything working. Must have set up the SD card with EmuNAND automatically because it works now :L.

    It's cool, thanks for everyone's help :).
    I fixed it, but I have a quick question that I'm gonna start a new thread on.
