    Hi, I have a 3DS with Gateway 2.2 and I have a lot of 3DS retail cartridge but I don't know how to use my own save. I read about backup them with the option "backup save cartridge" in GW 2.2 menu and use header, but doesn't work with SRWUX that is a 512 save file. Can anyone explain with a tutorial how to use my save from my retail games ? Thanks

    back up your rom, back up your save, rename the rom to .3dz, make the save the name of the titleid of the rom. (you can check that at 3ds.essh.co)
    you should be happy :)

    if the save you dumped is not 512kb, it seems that it will not work with gateway at the moment. it has to be 512kb :(

    Ok, but what about 3ds header edit and 3ds decrypted tool ? Now I backup my Luigi's Mansion, but before backup went wrong with Resident Evil Revelations and Project x Zone. I use a micro sd 4gb on my 3ds with SD adapter. Can I have to buy a bigger SD card or micro sd ? If I will buy micro sd 8 or 16gb or SD card 8 or 16gb, does the 3DS read it to dump my cartridges ? Thanks
