You would go to Data management, (The icon with the tool picture of it)

Then go to the 3DS games, there you will see how many blocks you have open.

For the SD card, it says there are 6,912 open blocks. How much is that in terms of memory (like gigabytes)

I would say somewhere over 1 gig. That's enough for a retail game, but there are many sizes to retail games, it would depend on which one.

I recently bought a 32GB SD Card for downloading more games since my other one was too small

I'm Jealous. Was the transfer process easy?

Kind of. It was difficult at first, but I managed it.

@outworld222: very easy ,you can copy all of the old sd to the new one ,but when you do this, you should close the wifi on 3ds,if you don't ,3ds will get data from nintendo internet and the data will can not used,and it can not restore

I see I see, that could have been what I was doing wrong. Thanks, as I may need a new sd card myself ( I Only have 12000 blocks remaining)
