    say, if i own dragon quest iv (i do) but i'm playing it on my EDGE card.. can i transfer the .sav file from the flash card, onto the real dragon quest iv game card?

    please tell me i can..
    i remember being able to do it back when i had a g6lite, but i can't find any options on the EDGE that will allow me to do this.

    Yes, you can, using either a 3in1 card or wifi:

    I have used NDS Backup Tool 3in1 v0.31 (2008/1/29) to backup, restore and dump retail carts.
    if you do not have a 3in1, either get one for about $20 or else use the wifi proggie

    NDS_Backup_Tool_Wifi_031f is nice, get it in the downloads section.

    I used a tutorial (maybe this one) when i first tried it.

    It worked GREAT to backup over 100 cartridges (it's just terribly slow for the roms, sav files are tiny and fast though), i didnt try restoring anything, but can find no mention of anyone having bad experiences doing so.

    P.S. i used Filezilla FTP server as it was already being used on my machine. (Also look at tinyapps.org, for other small free FTP servers)
