I got a new 3DS and I used the SD card form my old one, and the Street Fighter IV 3D save still is there, working (all my points, titles, everything still there).

BUT my Miis, Streetpass Plaza, and all my other "Built in Nintendo" channels were not still there.

Apparently built in apps save to the system (which has 200 blocks of internal memory apparently) and other titles save the the SD card. Note I tried Nintendogs and the save was able to work on another 3DS too, and THAT was with a different cart. So Nintendo games are not copy protected (like Wii ones usually are) YET and saves are in fact only saved to the SD card.

I can't remember if anybody posted results of this yet, or if anybody ever confirmed these things, if these are not news by all means lock this thread.

Aaaaah. Right. Either way, then Street Fighter IV 3D should be locked since it has Wifi profile in the save.

OFFTOPIC: there IS something wrong with Darkcorp, only one thing -- it killed my Rock Band DLC fucking with IOSes. Otherwise I would use it again lol. USBloader serves me fine now thanks

Games on cartridges such as Street Fighter save data on their own cartridge. The only data they save on the SD card is the streetpass stuff so they can do their streetpass thing when the game isn't actually inserted.

Then why did the Nintendogs save stay on the memory card? I tested it with another cart and the save was still there...
Ah, well that's interesting. There are other threads about saves and where they are stored, you should go and contribute your information to them.
