Transferring games from one SD card to another can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not familiar with the process. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the steps to easily transfer your games from one SD card to another.

Step 1: Insert both SD cards

The first step is to make sure that both your old and new SD cards are inserted into your device’s card slot. Once they are both inserted, turn on your device and wait for it to recognize them.

Step 2: Open File Manager

Next, you’ll want to open your device’s file manager. This can usually be found in the app drawer or by swiping down from the top of the screen and searching for “File Manager.” Once you’ve opened it, navigate to the location where your games are stored on your old SD card.

Step 3: Copy Games

Once you’ve located your games on your old SD card, select them by long-pressing on each game icon or folder. After selecting them, look for the “Copy” option within the file manager app and click on it.

Step 4: Paste Games

Now that you have copied all of your games from your old SD card, navigate over to where you want to store them on your new SD card within the file manager app. Once there, look for the “Paste” option and click on it. This will transfer all of your selected games onto the new SD card.

Step 5: Verify Games

After transferring all of your games onto the new SD card, it’s important that you verify that each game is working properly before deleting anything from the old SD card. Simply open each game one at a time and ensure that they’re running smoothly.

Step 6: Delete Games from Old SD Card (Optional)

If you’ve verified that all of your games are working properly on the new SD card, you can now delete them from the old SD card. This will free up space and ensure that you’re only using one SD card moving forward.


  • Make sure that both your old and new SD cards have enough space to transfer all of your games.
  • Back up important files before transferring games.
  • If you encounter any issues with game transfers, consult your device’s user manual or contact customer support for assistance.


Transferring games from one SD card to another may seem like a complicated process, but it’s actually quite simple. By following these easy steps and keeping our tips in mind, you’ll be able to easily transfer all of your games onto a new SD card without any issues.
