    Hi Guys,

    Im fairly new to the 3DS scene and have read up on how to add cia files to the emunand. Now that the 9.2 release has come I have managed to add the cia files with no issues.

    One thing I would like to know is how do I make a backup of the saves for the cia games (incase I want to upgrade the SD card in the DS)?

    I have noticed on the SD card where the launcher.dat file sits there are a few .sav files. Are these the saves from the games on the gateway card itself (as there are more .sav files for the amount of cia games I have installed and used)?

    Is it a simple case of just copying the .sav files onto the new SD card or do you have to extract them in a certain way?

    I would appreciate an explanation on how to make a backup of both cia saves and 3ds saves (from the GW card).

    Many thanks in advance.
