    Is there a faster way to dump ds games? I'm trying to backup Black/White but it's taking for Ever! It's only at 5% and it's been there for a couple of hours >_

    It's only 6% but my Internet connection is good but it's like super slow and I don't think my actionreplay dsi dumps games but only saves I wonder if you can use that to dump games?

    Gambia, The
    internet cionnection has nothing to do with wifi dumping speed.

    do you have a 3-in-1? theres a dumping tool, which writes to the3in1. it is pretty quick.

    This brings up a question I have. I just finished reading Another World’s review of the CycloDS iEvolution. One thing of interests he states is “The real problem with DSi games is that only recently have DSi ROMs been properly dumped. Apparently only RFTD and Bahamut have a proper DSi dumper, something which has become a coveted secret, yet not all of their dumps are working correctly. Older “DSi enhanced” ROMs, which appear to be incorrectly dumped for DSi-Mode, failed to function as required. These files cause the iEvo to report that the required DSi data is missing, meaning that each of the older DSi games will probably require a new dump at some point in the future.”

    Is anyone working on this? Has anyone reached out to RFTD and/or Bahamut and asked them to see about re-dumping older ROMs or sharing a way to properly dump DSi ROMs?
