    So I'm with a O3DS that came with New Super Mario Brothers 2 on a Toshiba SD.

    But I want to use a bigger SD on this console, there's any way to transfer my game to another SD card?

    I've already trying copying the files to the other SD but that didn't work.

    If I access the eshop I will be able to link the game to my account?

    usually it would work by just transfering the whole old sd card to the new one.
    but it messes up if you inserted the new (empty) sd card before you move all the files over

    By insert, you mean, put the SD Card on the 3DS before making the transfer right?
    I've trying formating the SD card and transfering the backup again, but this didn't solved the problem...
    Well since I've installed a CFW, I think I will go ahead and install a CIA file, since I've owned the game before :P

    Thanks for the reply!

    Somewhere in this potatoland!
    Just enter eShop again and go to the game, then redownload
    a pre-installed game is not linked to your NNID, but to your console ID
    That's why it will not show up in your game list you can redownload, just search for the game in eShop and then you will see that you can redownload it.
