    I'm pretty sure this question has been asked a million times, but I don't know where to look first.
    Basically I know the Action Replay DS can save progress on actual game flashcarts, so you can post them on the internet. With that in mind, can it do the reverse? Meaning I have a save on pokemon heart gold on my Cyclo DS and I want to transfer my progress to my legitimate Pokemon Heartgold game. I'm thinking I can do that with a Action Replay DS or other type of device.

    Tnx in advance, and glad to see this site is running strong as ever.

    action replay max?

    something like that. one of them lets you backup your sav into a .duc file.

    If you have an ARDS Media Edition or ARDSi, then you can write saves onto a game cartridge. The only problem is that both devices can only use saves in a custom format (.duc), which .sav's must be converted to. Heres a tool I made to convert to and from .duc files.

    Hope it helps,
    Matt.

    P.S. Just though I should point out, right now you can't back up and restore saves with a HeartGold or SoulSilver cartidge.
