Is there any special step that I must take to switch the content of the 3ds' SD Card slot? (Gateway)

    Sorry if the question is a bit confusing or in the wrong place.

    Basically, I want to install a CIA file, which i placed on the SD card slot of the 3ds. However, the file is way too big to be imported, so I need a bigger card (it's just 4gb, though the actual space is less than 3gb. The CIA is almost 2 gb on its own, and I apparently need just as much extra space for it to be imported. The Micro SD on the Gateway cartridge has more tha enough space, so i know that the issue is the other card)

    problem is, i got this gateway stuff as a present and it was alreayd ready to be used. Can i just transfer all of the files of the SD card to a bigger one and expect it to work with no problems, or is there any kind of step that I must take?

    You'll have to format emunand on the new SD card using the gateway menu. Then use emunand tool (do a search or check the wiki) to extract your current sdcard, and inject to the new sdcard. From there it's just copy and paste everything to the new card.
