    Im looking for a app that I can run from a R4 and save the *.sav files over wifi to a ftp server or otherwise ... Does this exist ? Note these are game saves that exist on the memory card and not the original game cartridge.

    Thanks

    There are possibilities, but Homebrew WiFi is really slow:

    - DSFTP - FTP server run on your DS
    - DSLinux - if you know your linux stuff you can run an FTP client at full WiFi speed.

    There also was a FTP Client called fileNinja kicking about late last year, I never tried it.

    Thanks for the info...

    Closest to what I was looking for was FTPninja... However it seems the upload capability is broken..

    Im gonna check out the DSlinux for a possible client solution that is easy to use or at least script-able.

    Thanks for the Links and direction.

    I reccomend DSLinux HIGHLY if you have RAM Expansion. It can exceed the standard DS wifi Transfer speed and can be really fast.
