Are you looking to transfer your games from one micro SD card to another? It’s a common problem among gamers who want to upgrade their memory cards or switch to a new device.

But don’t worry, transferring games is easy and quick. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process step by step.

Step 1: Insert Micro SD Cards into Your Computer

To transfer games from one micro SD card to another, you’ll need to connect both cards to your computer. You can use a card reader or an adapter that allows you to connect the micro SD cards directly to your computer.

Step 2: Copy Game Files from Old Micro SD Card

Once both micro SD cards are connected, open the old card and navigate to the folder where your game files are stored. Usually, it’s in a folder named “Nintendo” or “Games.” Select all the game files that you want to transfer and copy them by pressing CTRL + C or right-clicking and selecting “copy.”

Step 3: Paste Game Files into New Micro SD Card

Now that you have copied all your game files from the old micro SD card, it’s time to paste them into the new one. Open the new micro SD card folder and create a new folder named “Nintendo” or “Games.” This step is crucial as it will make sure that all your games work correctly on your new device.

Next, paste all the copied game files into this newly created folder by pressing CTRL + V or right-clicking and selecting “paste.” Wait for all the files to transfer completely before proceeding further.

Step 4: Test Your Games on New Micro SD Card

Once all game files are transferred successfully, eject both micro SD cards from your computer and insert them back into your device. Turn on your device and check if all your games are working correctly on the new micro SD card.

If any games are not working correctly, you may have missed copying some files. Go back and repeat the process to make sure all necessary files are copied.


Transferring games from one micro SD card to another is easy and straightforward. By following these simple steps, you can quickly transfer all your game files without losing any progress or data.

Remember to create a new folder with the same name as the old one to ensure that your games work correctly on your new device. We hope this tutorial has been helpful to you in transferring your games successfully. Happy gaming!
