    Im using EZflash V together with the 3in1.

    I want to load a new GBA game to the NOR of my 3in1, but i first want to backup the save data of my previously loaded GBA game to SD.
    Looking at the EZflash V quickstart guide, it says i should press R+X to do this, but nothing happens. R only seems to change the size of icons in my EZflash main menu.

    Has anyone experienced this or know a trick i could use to backup my save?

    Most kernels back the saves up if you load a new rom to the card.

    Having issues with my 3-1, using AKAIO 1.9 on an acekard rpg.

    if I flash a game to NOR (in this case pkmn firered) it works as expected, I can save just fine. reset the console or even move the cart to gamecube gb player and load the save just fine.

    the issues start when I backup the save in AKAIO. if I load another game, then reload pkmn firered it says the savefile was deleted. and from what I can tell the savedata in the gba.sav is not easily salvagable, doesn't work in an emulator either. anyone know whats going on?

    Isn't the save backed up every time you return to the EZV menu? That seems to be normal behavior for other DS flashcarts.
    Anyway, you could always use GBA ExpLoader to back up the save.

    Immediate backups of 3in1 saves are applicable to the PSRAM. NOR saves are the player's responsibility to manually backup when possible. AKAIO and the R4 version, Wood; are pretty much the same, NOR saves are not automatically backed up for you.
