    Hi all,

    I have 2 x 200Gb SD cards. I want to get rid of them and use my new 400Gb card.

    I can copy the data from one 200Gb to the 400Gb card no problem. All XCI and NSP files work fine. But, what can I do with the other 200Gb card? If I copy the data over some filenames already exist. If I merge them, the games originally on the second 200Gb card don't work. Do I have to reinstall everything on that card to the 400Gb card?

    Many thanks,

    Jaz

    Yes, you have to reinstall everything on one of the 200gb cards.

    There's a file on each card that lists all the games that are on the SD card. Merging the cards would require merging that file, and the tools to do that aren't available yet.
