    I plan to system transfer from a o3dsXL to a New3dsXL. The o3dsXl currently has a 64gb micro sd card in adapter in it filled with 20 or so gb of data, I plan to use in the new3ds. The New3ds will probably come with a 4gb micro Sd.

    Any idea how I can transfer from one console to the other and use the microSD card in the New3ds?

    If i recall correctly, you swap the SD cards after the local transfer is complete, so your n3ds should end up with the 64gb SD card, unless the transfer process is different for old to new 3ds. If you do not swap the SD cards for the transfer process, you should be able to just copy all the files that are on the 4gb to the 64gb card after the transfer

    Well my problem is that I am transfering from a system with 20gb in it to one with only 4gb free space...How can I do that?

    I believe the games will stay on the o3ds SD card and will be assigned to the n3ds when you swap the SD card, again I'm not sure if this is the case with old to new, somebody else will probably have to correct me if I'm wrong
