Digital Version Saved Data transfer

#1isawthelightPosted 6/27/2013 5:17:02 PM
Hello folks,

I was wondering what the best way to transfer saved data for digital copies of games are. I got a new 3DS XL and did the data transfer and noticed my saved data for Animal Crossing (Digital) didn't go through. To my pleasant surprise putting in my old SD card from my old 3DS brought back my town. Is there an easy way to transfer this data onto my new SD card and 3DS?

thx in advance

Copy the data from the old SD card to the new SD card using a PC.

Just don't try to backup or copy Animal Crossing data. It automatically turns corrupt and has to be deleted.

If you are moving from one SD card to another, it is safe to transfer all game data this way, including Animal Crossing.

Ah so Animal Crossing is a special case then eh? XD I really wish I was a bit more patient. Now I lost my precious town. Still if I were to download any other digital games in the future all I would to do is copy and paste onto a new card? Even when change 3DS's? Thanks.
