    Hi,

    I've been using my 32GB micro SD card with my Gateway without any problems. I've finished playing a game and I want to backup my save to my pc (by copying and pasting) and then put a new rom on it. However I can't as Windows says I need to format the drive in disk F, meaning I will lose my save data. Does anyone have a workaround?

    Many thanks

    The game save will be on your 3DS SD Card, not the gateway microSD card.

    Of course it is, sorry for my stupidity. I keep forgetting the SD card is in there, I'm so used to using my R4 on my DS Lite where everything goes onto the one card. Cheers.
