Can you clone DSiware games?
« on: May 20, 2012, 04:17:46 am »
I would like to transfer a game from my DSi to my 3DS while keeping the game on my DSi.
Because it is good in multiplayer.
(I have an SD Card if that helps)

It's not possible. DSiware games are locked to one system via hashcodes and other fun things. You cannot transfer them to another DSi, let alone a 3DS. You -can- make a backup of your DSi games to an SD card, but the game will only work on your DSi it was backed up from.
