    I was looking at my 3DS SD Card and I found sharing extra data is easy for our 3DS's (so we can all get spotpasses and the misc, since I'm sure we don't all own only the same games)

    To get extra data just look into your 3DS SD Card on your computer. The extra data can be found on the Nintendo 3DS/2cf01c59cfef027cb708f100d29e7078/1d3400ab4760a673534430320002544d/extdata/00000000/ directory.
    To put our extra data on your 3DS just extract the folders given to that directory.

    I'm not sure if the directory with the seemingly random text is per-3DS (ie yours might have different numbers) but yours should be something along those lines.

    To start off here are extra data for Ridge Racer 3D and Samurai Warriors Chronicles :

    0000034d - Samurai Warriors Chronicles
    00000358 - Ridge Racer 3D

    This isn't a thread for hacking them (just making that clear). The thread is for sharing the extra data.

    p.s. Anyone wanna help this list grow? =D

    I copied all of my files and extra data to a 16GB sd card and its all on my 3DS. (i can still access it all incl photos)

    Also of worthy note, I put my SSFIV game in my friends 3DS and it works great but uses my data! not his. Same for Ridge Racer.

    Extra data can be seen by any 3DS as long as it is added to your SD card. When you play the game it will have your previous data.

    Most information is saved to the game card itself. Ridge racer extra data is just time trials data.

    hope this helps, (if not - *shruggs*)

    so does that mean game data still saves to the ds card and not the sd?

    game data saves to the game card only.
    extra data saves to 3DS SD card only (so far for me with RR:3D and SSFIV:3D)

    To confirm that the data saves DIRECTLY to the Game Cart, I returned my copy of Super Monkey Ball for a replacement, and all my save data was gone. I was pissed haha. So no, it does NOT save to the console OR SD Card.

    "NOTE: Downloaded software that has been saved on several cards
    cannot be re-saved onto a single card."

    "If you save downloadable software and its save data on multiple SD Cards, this data can’t later be combined onto
    one SD Card."

    both are in the manual.

    i rest my point

    @Bigpaws

    no, your point was saying only the original SD card would work,
    when if fact you can change your SD card and if you copy everything to the new one before using it, it will work, and have all your data on it, viewable and useable by the 3DS.
