    I been trying to get Pokemon Omega Ruby with NASA. So I downloaded the .cia file and copied it to my SD card. Then I went to NASA to install the cia. But I couldn't because I didn't have enough space. I didn't have enough space because of the .cia file. It's like 1,854,071 KB! So I was wondering if there was a way to increase SD card space. I heard of SData, but does it work?

    EDIT: Finally got a Samsung 128gb SD card at Best Buy. It cost around 50 bucks, but it's totally worth it. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Install A9LH and save up ~1.8gb :P
    You should delete a game or two you don't play or clean up your sd card of useless shit.

    Get a bigger SD, they're really not that expensive. It's impossible to make an SD bigger without deleting things.

    somewhere
    Socket Punch.

    Alternatively, get a bigger SD card. 64GB will do.

    Best answer would be buy a bigger SD card.

    I picked up a 64GB microSD card from Best Buy on Thursday for 20 bucks before tax. They constantly have SD cards on sale.

    I sure hope you're not using the default 4GB sd card... get yourself a 64GB card, stat. Or delete other games. Or install the .cia using an FTP program.

    Not sure if this is a troll post or not. ~2gb isn't all that large really, being that there's 200gb microSD cards, and 512gb(!) standard SD cards on the market.

    I've heard they CAN go up to 2TB, but that still has a while to go.

    I heard that I could download some amiibo through the eShop. But when I asked how, they said that since I'm using an old 3DS, I need to download more RAM (since the new 3D has this built-in). However, they linked me to a Windows site (www.downloadmoreram.com) and it doesn't work on my 3DS. Can someone link the correct site?

    The pricing on memory is more of an exponential increase rather than linear. Basically, think of it this way: it's easier to put less onto something than to put more.

    Finally that 4th badge is mine. :)

    It's impossible to increase your SD card's space. Buy a bigger SD card. Or if you have the space to install it, but not enough for the cia, use FBI an installed it over your network.
    But seriously, buy a bigger SD card, they are cheap as shit nowadays. It's not like when I was young and I bought a 4GB sd costing 54$ at the time!

    Ok. I'll just use Sour Punch and buy a new SD card later.
