How do you move your DSiWare to the 3DS? I'm using the same SD card I used on the DSi, so there should be games on there. But is it a wireless transfer? Is the option to convert DSiWare even available yet? I'd like to know.

Also, does the 3DS have its own backup memory, or is the SD Card the only way to save data on the 3DS?

1. You can't transfer DSiWare from your DSi to your new 3DS yet. Nintendo stated that feature would come via a firmware update.

2. not sure on that one yet. Sorry!

Apparently, in May system transfer will require both systems, like DS Download Play.

The 3DS also is reported to contain 2GB of NAND Flash Memory, but that could be a mix-up.

We don't know yet. If you're worried about your DSiWare, don't trade in your DSi.

Hate to break this to you, but you won't be able to transfer those games now - you need both systems.

This is quoted directly from the section on the back of the Streetpass Mii Plaza booklet that comes with the 3DS about the features coming in an update:
"Note: To send content from a Nintendo DSi system, you must download the Nintendo 3DS transfer tool from Nintendo DSi Shop."

In other words, to transfer it you need to download an app onto your DSi and use it to transfer the data. If you don't have the DSi with the games you want to transfer on it, you won't be able to transfer them. Sorry.

Is that app already out? I haven't checked the DSi shop in a long time.

I don't think so. I'd imagine it'll be added in May when the 3DS update is out.

there's a System Transfer option under the Settings, but when you tap it it displays a message saying something like 'that functionality will be added in a later Update' or whatev'. I'd assume that may have something to do with it.

I wonder if flip note studio is also included in the transfer or do you guys think we'll get a flashy new 3D version?

By using layers, presumably. Each layer would be a distance in front of or far away from the screen. Like, the first layer would be popping out of the screen, and the last layer would be all the way in the back of the screen, and there would be some layers in between.

If thats the case it's not too bad as i only used the free points and my nintendo stars to buy dsiware.

Yes this is true. E-mailed Nintendo about this and they said....
-• If you no longer have access to the original system, no transfer can be completed. Data cannot be transferred to another system over the Internet, using an SD Card, nor can Nintendo complete the transfer for you.

  • Because the data transfer occurs via local wireless communication between systems, you will need to have both the original system and the Nintendo 3DS with you to perform the transfer.
  • The ability to transfer data from a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL to Nintendo 3DS will not be available until a system update currently scheduled for late May of this year.

Kinda smart way for Nintendo to crack down on the second hand console market, really. Force people with DSis to hang on to them.

My understanding is that the 3DS doesn't have any internal storage aside from the SD card.

I wonder if transferring DSiWare to the 3DS will remove the DSiWare from the DSi.

Stop complaining and GO PLAY GAMES.

I know our DSiWare will only be playable on one system, so it'd make sense for it to be physically deleted from the DSi in the process. After all, why leave it on the DSi if it'll be inaccessible?

Yes, it deletes DSiWare from the DSi. It also can't ever be transferred back.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.
