I have a lot of games on my sd card from Sky3ds (I sold it last week). Now I have Sky3ds+. Yesterday I opened DiskWriter, I made a kind of back up? He made a BKG file?

That means, a back up from all my games in 1 file. I don't know what and why, I would like to make from each game a seperate sav. file.

It did not work, I tried for Pokemon Y, but all was gone on sky3ds+?
Just copy and paste? Please give if it is possible, the steps.

Somebody who have experience of just for helping?

Thanks!

I don't think you can without the original Sky3DS.

This article details how to transfer the saves to the newer Sky3DS+, but the commenters stated their all their save data were corrupted.

The typical way in moving saves from 3DS flashcarts is to back them up with either JKSM, Checkpoint, or SaveDataFiler. Since you don't have the original Sky3DS anymore, those save managers have no way to decrypt and extract those saves.

You will need to either repurchase another Sky3DS or find someone who has one that's nice enough to recover the saves for you.

And that's one of the reasons why custom firmware is better than flashcarts for 3DS systems.
