    So after having played a lot of games, I some days ago stumbled on a GBA game that uses the FLASH_type 1Mbit savefile, and noticed I couldn't backup the savefile to my computer. The game was Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation, but now I'm playing Pokemon: Fire Red and I really need to backup my savefile for it. I tried to convert the FLASH savefile to SRAM using GBATA 0.7, then changed savetype to SRAM 1Mbit in ezclient 3.25, though the GBA shut down when trying to select the game. Then I changed to 512Kbit, which worked to play with, but whenever I restarted the game it said the savefile has been deleted.

    Is there any way to fix this problem? I can backup savefiles from EEPROM, SRAM and whatever else without any problems, but nothing happens when I click the backup button if it's using FLASH.

    EZClient should work right off the bat to patch it, no need for GBATA.

    Ah... seems to work now when I patch with EZClient to SRAM without patching with GBATA first, thanks. Not sure if the save file will be corrupted later on but I guess I'll see. I'm just using those ROMs to transfer Pokemon to my retail copies anyway.
