Can you save DS games somehow? I have the bad feeling my ACWW cartridge dies soon

    my dad works for nintendo.
    you can do it with a flashcart and a old DS
    or a save dongle...

    if you only have a DSI or a 3ds, it will not work... unless there is homebrew for the 3ds...

    There exists 3DS Homebrew, but: The save editor doesn't recognize my DS games, that is why I ask.
    I have a DS Lite, a DSi, a DSi XL, a 3DS with a black top screen and a N3DS, but no flash card.

    you need a flashcart to use with your ds lite..
    either that or a save dongle.. but would reccomend flashcart
    for the flashcart route you will need to use wifi with a ftp program.,

    I remember a homebrew that extracted saves and transferred them through WiFi.

    Does DS cartridges still use volatile memory for saving? Why would it die otherwise?
