Hi i want to upgrade to a new SD Card, but i am unsure which one to get and how to transfer existing data over from my old card to a new card

@CoAndy What do you want to use your card for? Are you just going to get it for eShop games, or for retail downloads?
All you have to do to transfer from one card to the other is put your SD card into your computer, copy all the files into an empty folder, place the new card in, and copy the data into the new SD card. Just don't delete the files on the original SD card until you know 100% the transfer worked. Keep the files on your computer as back-up as well just in case.

From Nintendo's website:
"The Nintendo 3DS is compatible with SD cards up to 2GB in size, and SDHC cards of 4GB and larger.
MiniSD and MicroSD cards are compatible with the use of an SD Card Adapter."
I hear the SanDisk 32GB microSD Memory Card being recommended a lot. I personally use a 16GB HP microSD Memory Card, although I'm probably going to upgrade to the bigger 32GB size soon. I've heard you can make cards up to 128GB work with the 3DS if you re-format them, but I doubt anybody needs that much memory.
As to the procedure....
Put your SD Card or adapter into a SD Card slot in your PC.
Copy the files from your SD Card to a folder on your desktop
Copy the files from the desktop folder to the new SD Card
Put your new SD Card in your 3DS

No problem. Bigger cards are getting pretty vital now with all of the digital content Nintendo is releasing. Although I did go for an impressive length of time with a 2GB card.

One change from @Ralizah's recommendation - I'd just get a regular 32GB SDHC Card as opposed to dealing with a microSD and a converter. Just seems like less of a hassle to use a regular card when they're as plentiful as microSDs.

@CoAndy - Yep, that's exactly what I mean, in that that's actually the type of Card I have in my system atm.
