    I can't seem to find a good guide for this anywhere.... How can I make a rom backup of my ds game cartridges and the save as well?

    I have a DSI btw and a acekard

    Did you use the search? I"m sure this has been asked many times....

    Someone even posted a tool for backing up a save from a DS cart to a second slot 1 device (via swapping), and vice versa....

    @CrashmanX
    This requires you having a Slot 1 device (GBA), now before we go further do you have one?

    Wrong.

    Set up an FTP server on your PC using SmallFTPd or an FTP server of your choice.
    Save files are pretty fast, but it'll take a while to transfer games... like 45 minutes to an hour and a half.

    No, you cannot because of the bolded text.

    That's Slot-2 [​IMG]

    And because DSi has no Slot 2, you'll want this FAQ [​IMG]

    I thought it was also impossible for that to work because the hotswap module for the DSi is different. I'm not entirely sure though.

    Maybe it is, I've only used my DSL to backup my games, and as I haven't got a DSi flashcart yet, I couldn't test it. Just thought it might help though.
