    I know you probably get this question at least a million times a day, but what's a good Backup tool that's compatible with the M3i Zero running the latest Sakura.
    I'm using a DSi if that makes any difference.

    I've tried NDS Backup Tool (WiFi), it freezes at "Connecting for Access Point.."
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!


    Okay, this thread is now my official, "How can I take my legit game cards and make ROMs from them" thread.
    Please, I need your help gbatemp! I need to know how to do this, I'm sick of relying on other people's uploads.

    Currently using:
    DSi
    DS Phat
    M3i Zero

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    you missed the point in the program, NDS backup tool doesn't work PERIOD with the DSi hardware.

    otherwise it would have said DSi Backup tool.

    Your out of luck, you need a DS.

    If I use a DS Phat will it work? I happen to have one.
    I also have access to a Lite if that's even better.

    Quick question, does the NDS Backup Tool (WiFi) work with the M3i Zero?

    You don't really need a specific tool to backup your data. Just copy the contents of your memory card to your computer.

    I'm talking about backing up real NDS game cards to get legit ROMs of them. Not just backing up my MicroSD card.

    It's fine, we all have our moments. [​IMG]
    If anyone knows a better way to get ROMs of legit games, I'd really appreciate it, in fact, I'll edit the topic to be more about that.

    You would need either a Slot-2 device or decent knowledge of the Wifi backup tool. I've never had much luck with the latter, so bought an EZ 3-in-1 from Realhotstuff.com, which works like a charm. The time it takes to rip depends on the size of the cart, but typically it's less than 15 minutes, but again this depends on size.

    Try googling Rudolph's Backup tool, it should be easy enough to find some more information.

    Where intellect matters
    It won't work on the DSi someone will need to make their own backing up homebrew that works on it.

    If you read the top post, I'm using a DS Phat as well. I've already been informed of the lack of backup homebrew for the DSi.
