    I wanted to record some combo videos and such for JUS, but whenever I try and start the game in no$gba or no$zoomer, it either fails to start at all or will stop working when it tries to save (tells me to reset the system), depending on what save type I have it set as. I can't figure out the correct save type, unless there's also some other options I need to set in order to make it work. Help?

    And yes, I actually own the game (that's how I know how to do the combos and such that I want to record :P )

    Hmm picking 512 kB fails?
    Not sure if no$gba could read save files from DS, if so I could load the game, make save file (as soon as it will allow me to save) and send savefile to You

    512KB does indeed not work. I also tried using my save from CycloDS and that doesn't work either.

    Should be EEPROM 512kb, according to this.

    Rubedo - what about trying with Desmume just for check?

    This should answer your question, convert raw save file (Actual nds format) to desmume (.dsv), then to no$gba if you so desire. The credit for following instructions goes to wiki
    Can I convert a save file from ideas or no$gba nocash or my flash cart to DeSmuME .dsv? or from a .duc or any other save file format?
    1. first, try importing the save file:
      1. close the emulator and delete any existing .DSV and .SAV file for that game
      2. open the emulator and the game. wait for the game to settle down on the title screen
      3. import the save file. reset the rom.
      4. now, if your save files appear, you have succeeded. otherwise, you need to take other measures.
    2. Convert the save file using [1] or [2]
    Target format should be DeSmuME or RAW
    1. Load the game. Let it get to the main menu
    2. Select the correct backup size*, as specified by advanscene.com (which is not always right, by the way)
    3. Use File > Import Backup Memory and pick the converted save file
    4. Reset the emulator
    (* Step 3 is not always necessary, if you are smart and lucky, however, it will never hurt to do it, unless you pick the wrong size)
    Can I convert a DeSmuME .dsv to No$gba or Nocash .sav savefile?
    1. Use File > Export Backup Memory
    2. Name the save file
    3. Import the battery into the emulator you are using
