    I have a question regarding friend code. For instance, my friend sent me a metroid prime hunters sav. and his sav. has been online and have a freind code associated with it. the question is, if i loaded it to my R4, can i get a new friend code or do i have to use his?

    thanks in advance!

    The FC is generated using the DS too, so you'll have another FC number.

    No. It will reset the wifi settings and give you a new FC when you try to connect in another DS.

    i dont think so, since ranks are saved in metroid's server and are associated to friend codes, not in ur save file.
    so when u get a new Freind Code, youll get new rank.
    AFAIK.
