    copy the rom from your old SD card to the new one....the save is inside the rom image

    Simple enough, let's try this.

    EDIT : Got it, thx a lot! :)
    I thought the save might be in the rom, but since the size was the same I discarded that option

    just for reference, there is a few games that use this method of saving,
    Pokemon X
    Pokemon Y
    Animal Crossing
    and some japanese game that i dont remeber the name of
    these are "card 2" games (also referred to as nand saving), even on retail carts the save is indeed stored within the same chip as the rom
    there is a program here to extract and re inject the save into the games so you can back up your save without needing to keep the whole rom file
