    Sorry if this has been talked about already. I couldn't really find anything about it when I searched. I currently have 2 micro SD cards for my gateway. Basically what I'm wanting to know is. Can I back up the save of the game on my computer? My computer will not recognize the SD card after I put a 3ds rom on it. Is there a program i can get to read the SD card? Thanks for any help.

    So they are stored on the SD card that goes on the side of the 3DS? I thought the saves were stored on the 3DS cartridge which it turn would be the micro SD card in my gateway.

    In a retail cartridge, they are stored in EEPROM (on the cartridge), but the GW3DS transfers the saves to and from the 3DS' [big] SD card whenever you launch / press Home & close out.
