    Preferably using a flash cart, I've got a m3 ds real. Just to clarify, I want to copy the .sav, not the whole game. I was able to transfer the .sav from the flash cart to the retail cart using eepinator, but whenever I try to copy the sav from a cart to the flash cart it says "ERROR Opening Fat!!".

    I remember there being some sort of WiFi tool for this. I forget what it was however.

    Search the forums for NDS Backup Adaptor Plus. It is a USB device that can read/write SAVs from/to retail carts. I use it all the time to make sure my retail carts have the most current SAVs from my flash cart.

    Are you on a DS, DS Lite, or DSi/XL?
    What games do you want to back up?
    Do you have a wireless router?

    DS, the original one.

    Yes but it uses wpa not wep (think thats correct) and I'm not the only one who uses it. I've been trying to connect my ds wifi (with the usb connector and wireless router) for a few days now and keep getting an error.

    Other than buying an adapter, you will need wifi.
