Default Blue 3DS xl Mario Kart 7 Bundle?

Hi, Mario Kart 7 comes pre-installed on the blue 3ds xl bundle but what do u do if u want to get a new sd card, higher than the 4gb it comes installed on... Can u transfer the game onto the new card or is it stuck there?

Thanks

I'm guessing you can transfer the sd card to the new ad card. Just copy and paste from your computer. It shouldn't be a problem.

It should be a problem because then anyone can copy it and sell it or give to all their friends. I wantto know if someone has te answer

I imagine you can copy the folders from the old card directly onto the new card. That's what I did when I upgraded to my 16G card a couple of weeks ago. I didn't have any bundled software to worry about, but I did have some e-shop games that didn't complain after the transfer.

From what I've heard, games like this are registered to the machine they were originally installed on and will not work on another unit. I've never tested that myself, since I only have one 3DS.

I can confirm that since I have two 3DS'. After copying data from SD card to another, I forgot that the data was still on the old card. I noticed that when there were only around 500 free blocks available when I tried to download stuff. The content from before the transfer was still there, but I couldn't access it on the old 3DS.
