Transferring data between SD cards

#1DarkHeroRavenPosted 1/13/2013 8:12:53 PM
Hey, I have a question. Is it possible to transfer downloaded data (eshop games and their save data, downloaded DLC etc) from one SD card to another? The reason I ask is because my JP 3DS' SD card has shown a recent penchant for... deleting our data randomly. It sounds absurd, but I'm worried it's faulty, and since I got Animal Crossing as a digital download... yeah, really don't want to be losing that. How would I go about transferring the data if it does work?

Get a SD card reader and put it into your comp, turn off your 3DS, put the SD card thats currently in your 3DS in there, drag and drop everything you see to your computer, eject the SD card, put in the new SD card, drag and drop all those files onto the new SD card, eject it, slap it in your 3DS.

It's very simple, drag and drop.

Ah, so I need an SD card reader... My guess was gonna be to just slap it just into the computer SD slot and transfer from there, so thanks!
