  3. Help doing an SD card transfer!
2 years ago#1
So, I tried to transfer files off of my old SD card to my new SD card. I copied them off the old card to my computer, then copy/pasted them onto my new card, which is what I heard I needed to do. However, now, when I load the card in my 3DS it will show Fire Emblem Awakening, which was downloaded originally on the new card, but my games on the old card that I tried to transfer over are nowhere to be found.

Any idea on what I'm doing wrong?

If you actually copy/pasted everything on the card, I have no idea.

Just copy the stuff to your PC and then put it on the new SD card. That simple.

Sounds more to me like you never did a system transfer from your old 3ds to your new 3ds. If you never did that and sold the old one already then you've lost those games.

I'd try it again if I were you. But don't copy & paste. Click & drag the Nintendo 3DS file on your old card to your desktop. Then click and drag that file to the new SD card. Should be that simple.

It wasn't a system transfer, I'm using the same 3DS.

Ive tried the above suggestions and it still won't read the games that I transferred, they aren't even showing up in the menu. Also, I checked how many blocks the card had, and for some reason it was the exact same number before and after transferring the other games, which definitely makes no sense.

If that's the case, you should definitely check the card again on your PC. Sounds like something went wrong with the copying process, or worst-case scenario the SD card is not working properly.
