What Kind of SD Card Does This Take?

I've been trying to get all of my downloaded stuff onto one SD card but that is harder than it first seemed and it looks like I'll have to buy a new one. What's the biggest one I can get for it and what type will fit into the 3DS? Thanks in advance.
If you have accepted Santa Christ as your lord and saviour, and are 100% proud of it, put this as your sig.
Well, I think you can copy over your stuff from one SD card to another. I've not yet done this myself but apparently it's a simple drag-and-drop.
I'm not entirely sure if your eShop data is saved on the system or the SD card, so I wonder if just switching the SD card will remove your eShop records (until you switch back)? Though I doubt this; pretty sure it would be a system save.
Either way, you won't need to redownload anything if you transfer the files (folder?) on the computer. Least I don't think.
Just to digress a bit, your post gave me an interesting thought. I always wondered why there wasn't a system to "transfer" a retail-purchased game to a downloadable form, for example using the serial key to generate a download code or something. Then I realized you could basically give your friends free games by doing that. People have criticized Nintendo for overlooking this "obvious" choice but the ramifications would be dangerous for them.
