2gb SD card transfer to 32gb SDHC card - Launching Issues

I have a 1st gen 3DS with my original 2gb SD card. Recently I purchased a:

 

SanDisk Ultra

32GB SDHC card

Class 10

 

I went through the steps on Nintendo's website to copy the data from my old card to the new card, and everything seems fine when I turn on the system with the new card in it. Then, issues occur when I:

 

Try to launch games from the SD card

View the photos in the camera app

Try to use 'extra data' that is accessed when in StreetPass Mii Plaza

 

I get a message that the "SD card is not available" and then am instructed to power off the system. Really at a loss here on how to resolve this.

Did you format the card in the process of transferring? That tends to cause problems

Quote from Top Contributor MARIO-

 

If you have been switching between two different SD cards, I don't know of a way to safely combine the data. However, I would try formatting the 4GB card as FAT32, copying the information from your 2GB card onto it once more, and see if that works.

 

This quote came from a problem with someone who was trying to combine files onto an SD card, but formatting the card as FAT32 might work!

Try checking to make sure the SD card isn't locked, by moving the little thumb switch on the side of it into the upper position.
