Upgrading your 2DS or 3DS SD card can be a daunting task, especially for those who are afraid of losing their console data, custom firmware, and other important files. However, transferring your 3DS games to another SD card is a simple process that can be done in a few easy steps. In this article, we’ll show you how to transfer your 3DS games to another SD card, without losing anything.
Firstly, it’s important to note that this guide applies to any 2DS or 3DS system, whether it is hacked or not. Take your console and open the System Settings to check out its storage capacity. Select Data Management, then Nintendo 3DS, and choose Software. This will show you how much storage space is available on your SD card.
Next, turn off your console and remove the SD card. Be sure to note down the size of your current SD card. In this tutorial, we will be replacing a 4GB micro SD card with a 64GB SD card. You’ll need to download GUIFormat from the link in the description. Once you have downloaded it, open the application and choose your SD card drive. Ignore the Allocation unit and Volume label, and make sure the Quick Format option is selected. Then press Start.
You may encounter an error message, but this is normal. Simply close the file explorer and try pressing the Start button again. Once your new SD card has been formatted, create a new folder on your computer and select all the content of the SD card. Drag it to the newly created folder to create a backup of the current SD card.
Insert your new SD card into your computer and format it as FAT32 using GUIFormat. Once it’s formatted, copy and paste the backed-up content from your old SD card to the new SD card. Be sure to insert the new SD card into your console and turn it on. All of your apps, games, and console settings should be intact.
Finally, open the System Settings to find out the remaining storage blocks. Select Data Management, then Nintendo 3DS, and choose Software. Congratulations, you have successfully transferred your 3DS games to another SD card without losing anything. You can now install more apps and games to your console.
In conclusion, transferring your 3DS games to another SD card is a straightforward process that can be done in a few easy steps. By following this guide, you can upgrade your SD card to a larger capacity without losing your console data, custom firmware, and other important files.
