Hi all. My super awesome girlfriend (she made my type that) had a 3DS with a downloaded copy of fire emblem that we have been taking turns playing for the past 2 weeks. I have a good 15 plus hours on that game. She bought me a new 3DS for my birthday today went ahead and opened it and bought Fire Emblem for me on my new 3DS. Therefore making her super awesome. She did this thinking that we could somehow transfer the save data from her sd card to my sd card. However, we can't seem to get this to work. I'm aware that we could transfer her data to my 3ds, but that would in turn erase all her data and we would only have copy of fire emblem.
We have two copies of the game purchased. We have saves on her SD card. Why wouldn't nintendo allow for an easy way to copy saves like they have in the past with their gamecube and wii systems. We assumed it would work the same way the wii worked using the SD card for saves. Any insight into this situation would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time
