    Ok, I have my SuperCard DSTWO. I started playing Pokemon Black, and now that Pokesav came out I would like to use it.

    However, the damn save file seems to be non-existent. I look in the directory and there IS NO SAVE FILE. However, when I load the game there is a working save. It just does not appear on my memory card when being read on the computer.

    There is no other game that has done this to me.

    I have tried to make all files visible on my Folder settings, and still, nothing.

    Anybody have a solution?

    I had that same problem, but it was easy to fix.

    1.) Make sure you know the DSTWO's key combination to to into the in-game cheat menu.
    2.) In that cheat menu, make a real-time save.
    3.) As soon as it finishes saving, restart your DS.
    4.) Bring up the information on the ROM in question, I think the default is the X button.
    5.) Switch the Multi-Save from 0 to 1.
    6.) Start the game.
    7.) Enter the in-game cheat menu like you did in step 2.
    8.) Load the real-time save you made before.
    9.) Save normally in the game.
    10.) You should have a file that is [ROM Name].1.sav. If you do, then you're fine. The DSTWO is strange for Multi Save 0.

    No, no, the issue was not in Pokesav, but in the DSTWO's saving. Empoleon's solution worked. thanks for the help from both of you, though. =)
