    Since this is kind of like the 3ds general thread, I have a quick question about moving data from one SD card to a larger one that already has 3ds data on it. For the sake of making this make a little more sense, I am using the copy+paste method on my computer.

    While it's downloading, there are a couple windows that pop up asking if I want to replace them with certain ones on the bigger SD Card. Do I do click 'yes' or 'no'? Derp. xD

    Your larger SD card should be blank, it shouldn't be asking you to replace anything.

    So I'm forever screwed for having two different SD cards since I don't have one that's blank? I mentioned they both have game information on them but the larger one has the space.

    Either move the entire data of one to your PC, or get another blank SD card. But you can't never have two different sources in one SD card. Had it been like that along with copying, hooooo boy, it could have destroyed the gaming market.

    Okay; so if I copy one to my PC, wipe it and get an even larger card with no data what so ever, then copy both to the larger one? Or is this where the 'two different sources' come into play, regardless of being under the same NNID?
    I could really kick myself three years ago for not paying more attention/not simply getting it straightened out, ugh.

    Well, yes, you can put all data in one, but...

    Whatever the method you use, you cannot have save data that was created in another 3DS, much less game software. It will mess up things if you combine them and you will potentially lose everything when you say "yes" to the window prompt to replace items.

    Okay, I was understanding up until the 'another 3DS' bit. I'm still using the same 3DS I've created save data on all this time; I'm only trying to move data from a smaller card to a much larger one using the PC as a go-between. Even if I have save data on a smaller one, I simply won't be able to move that save data + DLC to a larger one? I'm really only trying to do this particular action. I do see that you're able to re-download the game itself.
    I do understand that I'll need to do a proper full Data transfer when upgrading the 3ds system itself rather than stuffing it into a brand new system without doing anything first.
    Really though, I really appreciate your help with this potentially over-complicated situation I've created.

    Well, in this case, you really have to pick the right data that doesn't already exist in one card, but I don't really know if you can manually do that as data can be compressed into a single file that appears the same in the other data storage.

    Hm alright then, thanks for the help! Luckily I'm only after one game's save so I'll need to look into that even more. Fingers crossed nothing goes completely left.

    If one of the cards doesn't have a lot on it, I think you can just make backups of the saves to your system, transfer the data from the card you've filled to the larger one, put in the new card, redownload the games, and restore the saves?

    I would probably call Nintendo about this, because they'd have a better understanding of how their systems work.

    Long story short: You can't merge two SD cards you've been using onto one SD card, if that's what you're attempting to do here.

    Nintendo really needs a cloud system or something so you can store all your stuff than and redownload to a fresh new SD card
