    Hey guys!!

    i've had a 3DS for some time now and i was wondering if i can dump DS games, not 3ds, but DS .sav files ON the 3DS.

    i've recently tried some programs and tutorials on this link

    http://gbatemp.net/t274290-how-to-dump-you...-ds-games-saves

    all i got was "no game card or sav file found"

    i'm pretty sure the game card is in..unless i'm helplessly retarded, and i'm sure i've played and saved the game as well.

    the game i'm trying to dump (.sav file) is Harvest Moon Tale of Two Towns.

    i've also tried to dump sav files using my original 3DS games but same error.

    I'm doing this on a 3DS 2.1 firmware; i believe its the latest since i can use the web browser.

    Any help will be appreciated, thanks.

    Granted, I've never done this, but I do know a few things.

    As far as I know, to dump a 3DS save, you either have to use an NDS Adapter+ or a DS/DS Lite (which requires cutting the tab off of the side for 3DS games.

    However, to answer the main part of your question... to the best of my knowledge, no, you can not dump a DS save with a 3DS. Same rule still applies, you need to be using a DS/DS Lite, if I am not mistaken, as none of the methods work on a DSi/XL. This is due to the fact that the i/XL (as well as the 3DS) support hot-swapping the game cartridges (you can change the game while the system is on). Once you take out your flash cart (since the 3DS doesn't have a SLOT2), the system recognizes there is no cart and should boot you to the system menu. The DS/Lite, however, didn't support hot swapping - the system simply froze for games. But carts could get around this and allow you to insert a game while the dumper was running in ram.

    Have you tried using DSaveManager: Download

    Downloads the save files via Wlan, so give that a try and let us know.

    One of the problems with the 3DS is that it doesn't really like you ejecting the card then inserting a new one while it's running, in DS mode it doesn't complain about it but i think it won't work. In 3DS mode it'll pop up a friendly message and it's not possible.

    in fact i did read that, but i do not know how the 3ds is made so its not pretty obvious. yes its a newer release but it does not mean same features. i did not study the systems.

    and if i read correctly it did not state the 3ds in that list. all u had to do was say it includes the 3ds as well instead of making a fuss of it like saying its "obvious".

    no offense.
