    All DS game saves are located on the cartridge, not the 3DS.

    EDIT: There are various homebrew apps that allow you to extract them, but you'd need to use a DS/DS Lite for them I think. There are also various dongles that do this as well such as the R4i Save Dongle.

    except the fact that they changed the save encryption so you can't extract the save files from newer games.

    Except she's asking for a DS game, not a 3DS game.

    As the above posts said, they're on the cartridge.
    The only reason the psp's save files are on the MS is because it uses UMD's.
    You can extract and rewrite the files using rudolph's nds backup manager (with a dslite and a flashcart) or an r4i savedongle and the like.
