    Hello, I just bought a new 3ds and I want to use the sd card from my old 3ds. My old sd card has more memory and all of my games on it. I have only seen tutorials where you transfer memory from old 3ds sd card to a new 3ds sd card.
    How do I just use my old sd card on my new 3ds and allow it to use my account and games on the sd card? Right now it will recognize the sd card but not be able to read any of the games on it.

    O3DS - SD Card

    N3DS - Micro SD Card

    You can't change it, log in on your NNID in the eShop and you can re-download your games or do a system transfer?

    I used a micro sd card in my old 3ds. I used an adapter. I inserted the micro sd card from my old 3ds into my new 3ds and I am trying to get my games to be recognized on my new 3ds.

    The games will not be recognized until something like a system transfer, is done. As far as the N3DS goes its just seeing your O3DS files

    System transfer to a microSD card/SD Card (adapter), then transfer the files onto the card you want to use

    Nevermind, I just need to choose transfer through computer and then insert into the new 3ds.
