Regarding 3DS System Transfer

#1beebarbPosted 6/27/2013 4:11:53 AM
OK, so I eventually sucked it up and realised unless I had millions and a team of lawyers I wasn't going to get what I required stupid as that may be. One thing doesn't make sense about the transfer process though, why erase both the content and the rights to that content from the target system?

I had already spent a $15 eShop card before making this decision, granted it's not as much as I would have wasted repurchasing everything I wanted on the XL, but still an annoying waste for someone with limited funds.

Do they really expect me to get another card to restore what I already purchased? Granted I was going to eventually do so for the original 3DS to restore the few items I wanted on that system, but still.

Note: This is not intended as a complaint riddled topic. Unlike my previous topic, I don't want to see any immature posts involving inappropriate suggestion or assumptions of age.

Consider this signature an outdated and groan-inducing meme.

This is the kind of post I didn't wish to see. Only someone truly immature would ask this of someone else.

Either say something helpful or leave this topic. I am sick and tired of having to post my age range to people like you, I've done it too often for far too long.

OK after some further checking I haven't lost everything, but I seem to have at least lost access to some DLC items for Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity.

Do you have any clue as to why that may be?

@HermeticJustice
I fail to see how that helps, I already performed the transfer.

No you have not lost it. DLC is tied to the SD card. You have to move the SD card from the source system to the target system. Read the whole sticky.

edit: You can always redownload it. Your eshop data is merged.

THere's so much wrong in this post it's not even funny. You don't lose anything when you transfer.

I actually did that. The DLC I seem to have lost was on the 'target' system at the time of transfer. I seem to be unable to reacquire that DLC for some unknown reason. I do however have the DLC that was on the 'source' system at the time of transfer.

This missing DLC was the reason for my earlier confusion.

@nikowwf
Actually, if you read this post properly you would realise there are some things that can be lost in the process.
