    I've heard you can't, but also I heard you can with DataSaveFiller or something-mer-other.

    You can simply dump your cartridge. The save file will come packed inside it already when you play it on your Gateway.

    Did you trim the ROM after you dumped it? You can't trim it.

    This is simply a game played on an ofw which gateway has modified so playing it on gateway corrupts the save. So if/until gateway changes their setup it'll stay broken sadly

    Actually the OP' message is pretty confusing.
    He says 'i wanna get my save to play it with my GW'. Does this mean he was already playing it on Gateway and wants to use the same save file on the new retail cart?

    Sounds like he was playing it on an updated console and the save encryption is wrong to use on the gateway.

    Animal Crossing uses old save keys, so no problem with that. Just dump your cartridge with gateway and then rename the file extension to .3DZ. You can use your savegame just doing that (I tested it myself).

    Just wanted to give a heads up, that I did what Wizardy did and it worked just fine.

    3DS XL latest firmware - had Animal Crossing on it.
    1. Took Animal Crossing Cart to 4.5 3DS
    2. Dumped entire cart using Gateway
    3. Renamed the file to .3DZ (!! DID NOT TRIM OR MODIFY FILE IS ANY OTHER WAY !!)
    4. Copied file over to my SD Card
    5. Viola - previous save worked fine.

    Thanks Wizardy!

    You need to upload the image to a site (imgur.com for example).
    Can't post direct links to your harddrive :P

    Sorry SaveDataFiler is property of Nintendo and therefore can't be distributed or linked to here. It's super simple to find, you don't even need to speak French!

    Well, i think i've once played another Animal Crossing New Leaf rom that was'nt mine so it created a new empty save file on my SD Card so that's why when i play my dumped retail rom it says the save is corrupted. I'm gonna try backup all my .sav and remove them from my SD Card, the plain dump should work now? Right?..

    Btw, what is the SaveFileManager doing, can it somehow help me?
