    So I have the 8 GB SD card and it is small.
    I want to buy a 32 GB one.
    Do I lose all my save if i copy all rom.3ds from 8GB to 32 GB?
    If yes What can I do to keep my save?

    No you don't lose all your saves. The saves are stored on the Big SD card inside the 3DS and can be transfered/copied as many times as you like.

    Just keep in mind that if the old SD card has your emuNAND and it's been updated to a version that's NOT 8.0, you might wanna use the emuNAND Extractor Tool (I think that's what it's called) to extract your emuNAND partition from the old card and inject it into the new card so you can keep the emuNAND version when upgrading to the bigger card. If you don't care or if your emuNAND is either 4.x or 8.0, then just start from scratch and make a new emuNAND while copying over your saves manually.

    hmm thanks for helping but the guy is talking about micro sd cards, not the normal 3ds sd card :) (so he won't even need to remove his sd card from the 3ds, since he is only moving his roms to a bigger micro sd card)

    Actually, some games saves on the roms itself.
    Shouldn't matter if you're copying the roms over from one micro sd card to another but just a point of interest.

    sure, but as you say, we didn't have to point out those games here :)

    -and i think mt card saves on the micro sd, whilst gateway on the big sd.

    either way, if you copy EVERYTHING from the first micro sd to the new one, you will be ok :)

    I love it when people fail to specify which SD they're referring to.

    well it was in the title, but yeah apart from that he didn't mention it in the text, but 'moving roms' - roms are only useful on the micro sd card.
    anyway, i agree :)
