    I have a 4GB sd card in my O3DS and I cant install some cia files because there is not enough room. I want to use my 8GB card that I have how can I use it 8GB card and copy all the stuff inculding emuNAND over and make it work? Or what do I have to do to make this work? Copying and pasting doesn't work. Using Gateway.

    Thanks.

    Use command prompt to do a robocopy from the one sd card to your pc, then from your pc to the other sd card.

    i think you inject a copy of your emunand onto the new card then just copy all the stuff on your 4gb to the 8gb....basically i think thats it but im a newbie myself so hopefully some of the sites experts will put us both right lol thx

    3 methods

    1
    - Use DiskGenius (it's a Chinese software, I don't know if there is an English version) to create Old SD image.
    - Use DiskGenius to write the image to New SD, and adjust the partition size (DO NOT adjust the former 1GB/2GB space otherwise you will lose emuNAND partition and you should reset your whole work).

    2
    - Use Win32DiskImager to create Old SD image.
    - Write the image to New SD.
    - Use DiskGenius to adjust the partition size.

    3
    - Do a Format emuNAND on New SD.
    - Export Old SD emuNAND with emuNANDTool.
    - Inject the exported emuNAND to New SD with emuNANDTool.
    - Copy all the Old SD files to New SD.

    Method 1 & 2 only work for small Old SD to large New SD.
    Method 3 works for everything.
