Question SD card upgrade questions.

I am going to be transferring data from one XL to another. I wanted to upgrade the memory to a 32gb. Will I lose any info?

Also if I decide to upgrade the SD card later due to money issues does it count as one of our 5 transfer?


Sorry for if this is answered I couldn't find the original thread on my tiny phone screen.

To my knowledge, you can transfer data through the computer without using a transfer without losing data. Just create an empty folder, then insert the SD card and copy all the files (make sure you got them all) to the folder, then eject the SD card. Then, enter the new SD card and copy the folder into its memory. You can move instead copy the files and even not make a folder, but it's much safer to. I don't know to much about it, but I hope this helps Pixie.

Yeah I've done it before. It's a simple copy/paste job. You won't lose any system transfers or info.

Btw up to 128 GB memory cards work on 3DS.

Cut-Paste will do the job.
