    Hi, I have a NDS/GBA Flashcart (It was for the original DS) And it acctully works on my gameboy micro, although might stick out a little bit.

    Anyway, I can't seem to get any of the GBA games to save. Somehow, only one did, Metroid: Zero Mission, the first game I played on the cart. It bothers me because I want to play games like Pokemon, Super Mario advance, and some other odd titles. It dose say im missing some file (Called *.Dat) but I can't seem to figure out what it is. I do infact have Goomba, So the GBA games and GB games work. Just not save.

    Please help? Thanks.
    :)

    How do you expect anyone to help when you don't even post the name of your flashcart?

    My flash cart dosen't have a name or brand on it. Only that it says M3 NDS/GBA Flashcart with a blue backround and a guy with one eye on it.

    Yeah we're gonna need the name of the cart to help you out. If it sticks out that probably means it takes full-sized SD cards less than 2 GB, but that's as much as I can figure out from what you posted.

    That doesn't help. We need the EXACT name of the cart, not just a vague description.

    M3 is close enough, and I'm guessing it's an M3 Perfect and not an M3 Pro because he's able to run GBA stuff (the Pro only had 4 MB of RAM which is only enough to run the smallest GBA games out there). I'm also assuming that it isn't the slot-2 expansion pack for the slot-1 M3 Real.

    I got it awhile ago, It did come with the Slot 2, wich was required, and not the first slot, the first slot only allowed for the NDS and the GBA was aways a feature.

    I know that a part of this is due to the rum, but I have absolutely no clue why you're having issues. I'll give better help later.

    The .dat is the save file. You need to use M3 Manager to put the games on your sd card and it will make the .sav file for you and you'll be able to save in all games. Just download M3 Manager. Get it HERE
