    Bit of a newbie question here, but hoping for a nice explanation on it [​IMG]

    Is it possible to backup (and possibly restore if needed) save game files from retail Game Boy Advance cartridges using the Nintendo DS? I have been using the NDS Adapter Plus for the DS cartridges which works a treat and I'm hoping there is something similar I can place on a DS flash card to backup GBA saves.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks

    Yes,you need a Flashcart and the GBA Backup Tool by Rudolph, you can dump the sav + the rom and even restore the sav back to the original cartridge [​IMG]

    I have used that tool to back up all my GBA games to my flash card so I don't have to carry the whole stack of games around with me.
