    Hello.
    I have a simple question.

    How do you backup save data from a cartridge to the SD so you can use the save data on the digital game?

    The cart is Super Mario 3D Land, I currently don't have it installed on the Home Menu, but still want to backup the save.

    FBI was my choice, but what should I do?

    Thanks.

    yes
    With FBI, go to Titles -> (the game of your choice) -> Browse Save Data -> <current directory> -> Copy all contents. Next, press B until you're back at the main menu, go to SD -> <current directory> -> Paste. You can also paste it inside any folder =) You can also do this for DS games (JKSM doesn't work with DS games with or without CFW)
