    You just copy over the files from the old SD card to the newer one. BUT first let the 3DS format the card.

    @ Phantom_User - Wait you have to update your 3DS in order to format an SD card?

    That's incorrect, formatting the SD Card does NOT update the FW of the DS.

    That is what I thought. I'm thinking Phantom_User misunderstood me.

    I'd guess because you said "let the 3DS format the card"?

    It will not update your FW, don't worry. Just a misunderstanding :)

    i'm using a 64gb sandisk class 10, but when formated in FAT32, gateway gives me fileread error or something.... so i format in exFAT, works like a charm since then...

    idk if my card is falty or anything else

    I don't know then... never owned a Gateway (much less a 4.5 3DS).
