    Can your DS connect to the internet to play games normally?

    I tried this with savegames_manager (To backup save file from HeartGold), but it didn't work.
    I set everything up as it said on the first post, but for some reason it gets stuck at "Connecting to AP"

    Yes, my Wi-Fi works when using normal games.

    The NDS Backup Adapter+ got a software update to support 3DS carts.

    The same things that dump saves can restore them.

    I have actually encountered a similar problem when using the WIFI dumping process. The nintendo ds (using an original NDS model) powers down after swapping in the cart and pressing "A" and was wondering whether you could clarify how you got it working or anyone else for that matter could help troubleshoot the problem.

    Many thanks in advance

    I'm trying to use save_manager to put a Pokemon Black .sav file onto a cartridge, but to put a long story short, the top screen of my DS isn't working. Would anyone mind telling me the exact button presses I need to hit in order to get it working?

    This won't recognize my Pokemon White save with the wifi method, any reasoning?

    Says "file not found"

    But the rom backup works just fine =/

    Managed to make it work on EZ-Flash IV after all.
    All I had to do was convert it to .ds.gba using dsbuild.exe, then dldi patch it.
    All those tools are found in the HOMEBREW AND DLDI folder that comes with EZ4Client.


    Forget that. Gets stuck at 16384000 bytes dumped and no file appears at root.

    You should add that savesgame_manager works even if the 3in1's battery is dead.

    Got problems here with the WiFi save dumper. I edit the ini file successfully, save and put it on my SD card. Run the app on my DS and it reverts to default settings...

    I cant get past this.

    Edit:

    Fixed.

    Whats the difference between WFC and wifi? When i configure my setting in a game it says that the connection is ok but when i go to connect to WFC, Wood Dumper fails to connect.

    Hmmm. If it helps, im dumping FFTA2
    I have a Dsl
    Im using a Super Card 2 (GBAtemp edition)
    and im using the colleges wifi.
