    I downloaded the demo for EOU a couple weeks ago, and put considerable time into it. Today, I got a physical copy of the game in the mail via gamefly, with the previous renter's partially completed classic mode on it. When i try to start a new game, it doesn't seem to see the demo save file. I'm guessing that is a result of there already being a save on the card?

    I tried holding A+B+X+Y to delete the save data (worked for Animal Crossing). I've also tried starting a new game repeatedly. I seem to be getting nowhere.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? Or know how to delete the save data from the game card?

    use a DS Phat or DSLite with a DS Flashcard and use a Save tool to corrupt the save data on the game
    so when it starts it will say its corrupt, wipe it, then hey presto, its like new

    I'm sorry, I don't fully understand your solution. Why would I need a flash cart compatible DS?

    I remembered I have an NDS Adapter from EMS, but I think I might have the earlier version, rather than the Plus, and it doesn't seem to want to do what I want it to.

    because you need a DS Flashcard to boot the Save Reder/writer Homebrew

    http://3dbrew.org/wiki/DSaveManager

    How to Use DSaveManager ?
    - Setup WFC via a game (eg. Mario Kart)
    - Change the IP in the dsm.ini to that of the PC running the DSM.exe (Leave a newline at the end of the IP)
    - Load the DSM.nds on your DS/DSLite, any method should work fine.
    - Follow the onscreen instructions!
    DSaveManager is another DSavemanager for 3DS and DS, it is used for transfering save files from DS/3DS games via wlan to a PC,it was released by crediar.

    You cant use the Homebrew in a 3DS because you cant hot swap cards

    this meaning you have to get a 3DS cart into a DS Slot, either by putting the 3DS card in a DS case, or taking the notch off the 3DS cart

    Ohhh, I understand.
    I took the same premise, but instead loaded the existing game, hit save, and ejected the card mid save. Boom, corrupted data.

    Unfortunately, my demo data has now gone AWOL? So, I guess I have to start over anyway.
    Thank you for your replies. I'm kind of new to the whole 3DS thing. :)
