It is important to understand the difference between a RAM card and a flash ROM card. It took me a while to figure this out. RAM cards can be written to directly by the synthesizer. I think. I've never used one.
A flash ROM card needs to be programmed with a synth (I use Soundbridge). In Soundbridge you can add midi files, samples (.wav), and user banks (.SYX), and then program them to the flash card.
To back up your user bank into your flash card, you need to first send the user bank to a PC. I use Freeloader to read the sysex dump from my QS7. To send the midi data from the QS to the PC, hit the "Store" button and page through the options, and you will find one relating to sending data to midi port.
Once you've done this and saved the file as a .SYX, you can then use Soundbridge to load that .SYX file into a project (which can also contain .wav and .mid files). Soundbridge can then send the entire project to the QS.
Hope this helps, and that I've understood the question!
