    Guys, I was wondering, is this possible?:

    1. Get a physical 3DS game cartridge, (completed story,mission,etc...)
    2. Backup save file using R4i savedongle,
    3. 3DS game cartridge save file transferred to a digital copy, (physical cart now empty) (http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Support/N...nload-the-Save-Data-Transfer-Tool-741274.html)
    4. Lastly, restore the save file using R4i savedongle back into the physical cartridge.

    So in the end, you'll have both games physical and digital with the same save file. I never tested it, Just wondering if you guys had done this.

    Is it possible? (I want to do this on my Mario Kart 7)

    Thanks guys!:lol:

    Sadly this is not possible.
    The transfer only works "One Way" If you transfer from 3DS card to SD or SD to 3DS card it will not allow you to do so the opposite.
    So sorry to say but this is most certainly not doable.

    Not trying to do the opposite, I'm restoring the save file made from the backup by the save dongle.

    Then it could work...You just need to try it out.
    Other than that, I'm afraid I don't know.
