Topic: Transferring 3DS Data

Posts 1 to 5 of 5


I apologize if this has been asked before, but I did a search and couldn't find the answer. How do you transfer your 3DS SD data from one 3DS console to another? I got a new 3DS today and want to transfer my Miis, AR Card, Face Raiders, Mii Plaza and game save data from one unit to the other before getting rid of it. I tried copying the data from the old SD card to the new card using my PC but that didn't work. Has anyone done this? If so, I'd appreciate any tips. Thanks.

I'm not sure there is a way to transfer EVERYTHING. I would try "system transfer" in the system settings.

I don't think you can.

There is a tool to transfer from a 3DS to another 3DS in system settings....
But it does nothing.

It will just tell you that you can't do it right now.

Soooo.... better wait some months before getting rid of your old 3DS

Yeah I don’t know either.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.
Oh! eShop Gurus.

Thanks guys. Guess I'll be waiting for 3DS System Transfer to be enabled So far I've only transferred my Miis over using QR codes. With Nintendogs none of my Journal data came over. I still have the Spotpass Presidents, but I have to wait to run into them on the street now as opposed to choosing to meet up with them in the park. I hope Nintendo fixes this soon. SD backup is great if you can use it.....
