    I had been playing Super Robot Taisen OG EF when it happened the first time. I got decently far, them left it alone for a few months. When i can back to it, there was no load game option.
    Funny, I didnt move anything or delete it did i?
    Checked the kart, and all the save files are right there, the game just doesnt see them i guess.
    Also it happened to my castlevania DoS file. Again all the saves are on the kart, just not being recognised.

    Now i can start a new game and come back to it again and it finds it. But it doenst see the old ones.

    maybe... it set the save files as auto again during one of the updates so it overwrote the file save?

    Have you checked the file extensions? you may need to rename any .nds.sav files to .sav

    If you do have .nds.sav files, delete the new .sav's and rename the old nds.sav's to .sav

    I have a batch file which can rename and back them up http://filetrip.net/file.php?id=11163

    That's just the Sav Ext. you set AKAIO to set or you were using the Official firmware before possibly. Make sure in the System Options, you have it set to *.sav. Just use tk_saturn's batch file and you'll be good to go.
