    I want to get a save from one cart to another. I'm aware that using a wireless router it's possible to extract saves onto a flashcard, but I don't know about onto another cart?

    If so, what would I need? I have an M3i Zero.

    If you want to put your saves from one flashcart to another, depending on the brand it might require conversion.

    www.shunyweb.info can convert gamesaves.
    Ones like R4DS, Acekard, CycloDS and DSTwo share the same format, I'm pretty sure M3 cards are different.

    Are you trying to clone the save? Meaning, you like my pokemon / dragon quest / yugioh / whatever game save and you want to replace your gamesave with mine?

    Ok for flash cart to official cart you would need a PC and a DS Gameshark (Some of them can back up and restore saves, like mine hehehhe) With it you can also download saves from the GS web site.


    I really do not know of any other way to put saves on a commercial cart.

    Flash cart to flash cart is easy you just need some software to convert the saves if they are not compatible. I even think some one made a online flash version that does it right in your browser...

    *does some quick google fu*

    If you need it that will help you.
