    Yess....I know there was a topic like this, but that was over 2 years ago and I really don't want to try go and bump that topic.

    But in any case, I figure if I can't get a converted file to work, why not try backing up the game itself? I've tried a great many places, but found the "NDS_Backup_Tool_Wifi" tool, but when I tried to initialize the connection, it didn't show my IP.


    So my request: Can somebody help me out? (end request)

    Did I forget to mention I have the Edge flash cart?

    Did you set up the INI file properly? Here's a guide:

    As a matter of fact, HOWEVER when I open up the DS App and run the connection, it only picks up the default IP Of 192.......not mine. I do have McAfee Security Center, but I turned off the Internet & Network Firewall......but that doesn't work does it?
    I followed the steps for the FTP Server setup.
    But does the Port have to be 8080 or 21?

    I'm not sure... but I wouldn't change the port until you're sure it works since the app is VERY picky.


    And what do you mean, 'not your IP'?
    The IP address you put into the INI file is what shows up at the top.
    And 192.168.xxx.xxx -IS- your IP. It's your local IP address.
    For example, my PCs IP is 192.168.1.101, xbox is 192.168.1.102, laptop is 192.168.1.103, DS is 192.168.1.110
    So I have to forward port 8080 to 192.168.1.101 for the FTP to work properly.
    My internet IP is 72.74.xxx.xxx
