    Default 3DS SD card problem

    I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I tried something pretty dumb, and know I need help getting out of it...

    It's a little complicated, so I'll try to explain this as clearly as I can.

    I downloaded Pokemon Y on my first SD card. I put a lot of time into it, already finding a shiny pokemon, EV trained several through super training, and many other achievements.

    I found a second SD card. I downloaded pokemon Y onto this as well, using the same 3DS. I started a new file, played for a bit, and saved.

    I put my first SD card back into the 3DS, expecting to pick up from where my first save file had left off. Instead, I got this message: "The saved data is not compatible with this version, so it can't be used. Please refer to the electronics manual."

    I don't care about the second SD card anymore, but is there anyway I could possibly retrieve the data from my first play through? I tried deleting and redownloading(with a save-data backup of course), but that didn't work.

    I know this is pokemon related, but I feel it's best put in the tech section, considering the circumstances. I'm not asking about anything regarding the game itself, just rescuing save data. And sorry for the unspecific title, it's difficult to explain the situation in one phrase, I'm more stressed out by this than I should be.

    You have the digital version of the game, right? Every time you save your game on X or Y then it saves a small bit of data to the actual 3DS's system memory telling it that was the last save used. If you try to use a save that wasn't the last one used then it won't load. And since there's no way to access the 3DS's system memory there's no way to change that. They put that in place so people can't clone Pokemon by reloading older saves.

    Someone else may post some way to fix your problem. But I'm pretty sure there's no way to get your old save back now. Sorry.

    After both researching and waiting for a response, it seems I've found nothing.

    Well, now that I've calmed down, I've decided to just delete the data and start again from scratch. So there is now fixing it now.

    And from here on out, I've decided I'll only use things for their intended purpose, so at least I've learned something from this.
