    I believe you can put them anywhere but not in the _aio folder. Basically just make a game folder and put them there.

    As others have stated, anywhere you'd like except _aio folder. Reason being it's a hidden folder so it won't show up in the AKAIO browser. I usually just put a folder called "DS" on the root of the card.

    about that... I have another question... or 2

    Where do I place my .sav files?

    I know this has already been discussed multiple times in the forum, but I heard someone state he could perfectly run his genesis, gba, and nes games on this card, is it really possible to play gba games through this card? I also saw some gba stuff in the akaio wiki so im getting really confused.

    You put the save files in same folder as your roms. GBA games only can be played via ram expansion i.e. an EZ Flash 3 in 1. Genesis and the nes games probably were played via emulator.

    The emulators can be found in the downloads section of gbatemp. For the panasonic sd formatter I just use the default settings.

    If you are using 4GB above, I suggest putting multiple folders as I heard it will be a problem if you have over 100 files (rom and save) on the same folder. I have atleast 5 folders on my Acekard 2.1
