I bought Dual Destinies on one memory card and created a save backup when I deleted it, now I am re downloading it on another memory card. How do I transfer the save backup from one SD card to the other?

oh sorry... you want to back up the save?

doesnt the system save to the actual game cart?

the sd card is just to hold extra games...yea you cant specifally find a game save and back it up...

you have back up the whole card.

I had to do this for my Monster Hunter 3 save. I googled what number that game has, and copied that, which worked. If no one on google say what number the game has, I do not know what to do, other than copy all data..
