    I backed up a 3DS game and put the .3ds file on root of mSD card. I booted into GW mode and pressed Select. The top screen GW appeared with 1 item in it, but the item did not have a picture and when I tried to load it- nothing happened... Am I doing something wrong?

    What is difference between naming backup .3ds or .3dz?
