    I need help guys. I've formatted my g6 flash card. but before doing that I saved my .sav file to my computer. (Before I go on, here is my first question here.)

    1. For peeps who use g6 (Disk Manager). To save your .sav file to your computer, don't u have to click on the "(game name).0" and then click on "read" to save it to your computer? Or am I missing something?

    I've done this with DS games to back up my saved files to my computer. And whenever I want to play that game again I just put the game back into the g6 flash card and replace the .0 with my back up .sav file from my computer and it would work.


    For some reason, (I'm talking about GBA game here) the .sav file I have saved in my computer won't work. Can anyone help me?

    The file that I've saved from the flash card before erasing the game is 32kb. Does that have anything to do with it? I've tried using Multi save converter but it still wont work.

    Sigh..... I've clocked in 20+ hours in that game and now I have to re-do ALL that crap again. (rpg game) Please help.

    I still have my .sav file in my computer. Don't wanna erase it man....

    I don't know why you're using the Disk Manager to copy your save. You should just be able to use the NT file manager.

    I would suggest that you copy everything off the flash card. Put the one game on the card using the Disk Manager, play the game, save it. Then take it out and see what files are there. Where is the save file on the card? Then you should be able to identify the proper filename and copy your old save in place. It's possible that you copied the wrong or use the wrong file name.
