    Hello all,

    My gateway isn't working properly. So I need to change my 16gb to a 32gb. How can I do that without losing all my saves and installed cias?
    I copied the sd card files but my n3ds doesn't recognize the games and when I put the 16gb back, it does normally.
    Thanks.

    Make sure your new card is FAT32 formatted.
    Then delete the "Nintendo 3DS" folder right before copying it over from the old card.
