  3. How easy is it to transfer data to a new SD card?

My 3DS came with a 4 GB card, but once that fills up, is there a way to fully transfer everything from it to a bigger SD card? I assume it's hard/impossible because that would make it easier to pirate games.

That easy? On a Nintendo system? :O

So couldn't anyone hypothetically have my digital games? Or do they combat that somehow?

Anyways, thanks. I'm glad that's the case.

The games are encrypted specifically for your system. Data from one system won't work in another system.
