    I'm trying to rip my .3ds and .3dz saves from my gateway card to .cia using JKSM. My FE:A rom is .3DZ and loads the save just fine in gateway, but when I try to export it just gives me Error opening save archive!. I tried checking out savedatafiler, but it just says broken CTR card.

    Is there a fix for this? I am trying to convert a Gateway save to CIA.

    Basically the Gateway stores its saves on the sd card so its not technically on the gateway card. Games like Pokemon and Animal Crossing use a different type of save so those could be exported to JKSM.

    I'm using this to backup saves from real 3ds carts and import them to freshly installed cia games that have no save data at all. I get the same error (Error Opening Save Archive). I have verified that data was written to SD at \JKSM\Game_Name\Save_Name.

    Any ideas?

    There's your problem. You need to create saves in the games before JKSM can write to them.

    DOH! Thanks. It of course worked fine after I played the game once.

    Is it cool if I PM you? After spending some time screwing around with it, no save/data manager can actually move the files. FBI, SDF, and mine all give the same errors. SDF's files are all filled with '**0xXXXXXXXX**', FBI will not move them if it hits an error, and mine freezes unless I tell it to not try moving the files. They can get the files that actually are saved to, it's blank ones that are giving them problems.

    Sure pm away! I hope you don't think I'm bagging or bashing your program. I'm just running out of options for a couple of high hour saves.
