    I lost my save an mini coopers was good enough to upload me his save however its from a G6 and is a .0 file. I have tried all morning to get it going on my M3 lite as a .dat file but I cannot get it to work.
    I have tried renaming the .0 to .sav and then converting to .dat but no good.
    Anyone know how or can do it?

    Here is the save file: http://www.et.byu.edu/~khead/FinalFantasy6Advance.zip

    try renaming both of the files, your "new game" may be stuck in sram so the m3/g6 will load from the sram before the cart for some reason.

    just rename both of the files to like "ff6.gba" and "ff6.dat"

    use the game manager to write the save

    make sure to do this all before you put it in your ds
