    Heya.

    Both me and my GF got a Toshiba 2 GB SD-card with our 3DS.
    We're both thinking about upgrading to a 16 or even 32 GB to be safe with space.
    However, is it just about copying over everything from the original 2 GB to the new card, or is it going to be problems with licenses with stuff bought from the eShop etc?
    If it is as simple as just plugging in both cards in my computer and just transfering them of right away then I'm buying one for sure.

    I don't want guesses here, I want people who's got a source for their claim or that they've done it themself.
    Much appreciated, thanks!

    /Izzy

    I'm using a 4gb card, sure just copy everything from your current card to the new one.

    Thanks alot, and them I'm assuming that all the licenses for which games you've bought etc are all on the 3DS itself, built in Memory or something. [​IMG]

    I'm using the 8gb from inside my works digital camera. You can back up the memory stick onto your computer, just in case!

    Got a similar question like Izzy, let's say I get a 32gb with class 10, would that work on the 3DS with the files transferred? Is there a limit to the space and speed of the memory card for the 3DS?
