Okay, I'm very lost. Been googling for weeks now and only getting more and more confused with broken English tutorials and missing step sites, broken/outdated links, etc etc etc.

I have the NEW 2DS XL. I Have a Vanja USB Type-C/OTG Card Reader/Writer, an SD card formatted correctly (it does play my 2DS game in NDS file format no problem), and a "cart" I guess is what you call it that allows the SD Card to go into my system and play like a game cartridge. As I stated already, games I have in NDS file format (I have lots of them) work perfectly fine when on my SD Card. I just drag and drop them into my games folder and pop it into my 2DS and it works fine.

I tried to move .3ds files and .cia files and it doesn't work. Seeing a lot of lingo about purchasing something for like $30 to make it work, others say I have to have a FBI hack/brew thing to make it work, etc. Most every WORKING link says it's for the 3DS, makes no mention of the new 2DS XL.

So my question is... with what I have already, can I get 3DS games to work on my SD card with my NEW 2DS XL?

2DS is just a 3DS without the 3D features,

if you want to install 3DS games you will need to first hack your 3ds

they are installed in a different process to the NDS card you have.

OOOhhhh so I just treat it like a 3DS? I gotcha... that's clearly where I was hitting a roadblock. I considered them different entirely other than they can play the same games. Thank you! Checking that site out now... (I did run into that site a few times on my journey but assumed its 3ds only)
