    I have an Acekard that is not saving during a game.

    If I read the microSD card in my computer, I can see that there are in fact .sav files on there, but some have very old dates (not current).

    My games are neither creating new .sav files or reading the old .sav files.

    How can I solve this?

    AKAIO 1.7 uses lowercase file extensions for it's save files, it won't see those with uppercase file extensions. AKAIO 1.5.1 and earlier used uppercase SAV if the ROM filename was 8 characters or less long and so these will need to be renamed.

    The Official Acekard software normally uses *.nds.sav for it's saves, while AKAIO normally uses *.sav for it's saves. These saves will also need to be renamed if you want to use them with AKAIO.

    I have a tool which will do both and it will back them all up before renaming.

    Otherwise make sure your MicroSD card has been formatted with the Panasonic SD formatter.
