    i'm trying to help my friend merge the data between 2 SD cards.

    one SD card is the 2GB one that came with her 3DS and has Mario Bros 3D Land installed.

    and the other one is a 32GB one with Bravely Default Demo, Pokemon X patch updates, and PokeBank.

    the first thing i did was backup both cards separately to a computer- "old card" and "new card"

    next, i formatted the 32GB to tidy things up.

    i then copied over the "old card" data first to the card. then the "new card" data.

    i was prompted with a replace for a "00020400" folder. and i selected yes. and agained prompted for replacing "phtcache.bin" within this folder. and again i selected yes.

    when i boot up the 3DS, i only see the "old card" data of Mario Bros 3D Land.

    should i not replace this folder and the file?

    The data was not intended to be combined. So of course this will happen.
    IIRC someone did it before though.

    seems like this is what is going to have to be then.

    from my own 3DS. i upgraded from a 2GB to a 32GB as well. but instead of using them separately, i was able to just copy the 2GB data to the blank 32GB. no need to merge any of the messy folders.
