    I got a new sd card 32 gb and I was wondering how I transfer my games and save data because I copied and pasted the files but nothing showed up

    who has two sd card readers?

    idk, I think that's pretty rare. He probably did sd->computer->sd.

    Did you check to see if it's real using the program that I sent you?

    Format the new card to fat32 and copy over the files again.

    yeah most people only have one.

    I recommend formatting your new sd card to fat32 and copying over the files again.

    I would definitely check if it's real though.

    Yes they should reappear. Are they still there when you put your old sd card in the 3ds?

    32gb is sdhc. unless the cards bad or some offbrand thing, it should already be in fat32.

    format to FAT32 with say GUIFormat, backup sd content, once formatted to FAT32 paste it all back on and it should normally load. Thats if you didn't use an emuNAND tho
