    Hey! So I have small 8gb sd card in my 3ds and I was wondering how I could enable my 3ds to use a larger capacity 64gb card, as I want to download many of my digital titles that I have, I had to get rid of alot of them for Pokemon Moon. Does anyone know how to do this?

    Oh. So all I have to do is format to fat32 and transfer everything from one card to the next and it should be fine?

    I'm not sure if the games will transfer but you should try it.

    i would recommend copying in case something goes wrong. such as corrupt files.

    It'll transfer, I've done this myself. And as Mariomasta64 said, just copy it.

    yes, so that if something doesnt transfer i.e. a corrupted file. youll have the old card. in case something goes wrong and the new doesnt function you have the old one
