    I’m trying to use GBA Backup Tool 0.21 to backup my saves, however I just get the message “This hardware is not available”

    I’m running it from an M3 DS Real with the Sakura firmware, version 0.1 works just not 0.21 which is the one I believe will dump eeprom saves.

    Any ideas on what the problem could be?

    Hmm, I remember doing this...

    press R and look at the settings that could change the save type.

    sorry if i've given no help

    Thanks for your reply, the only thing I can press is A which just turns the DS off.

    I’ve tried it with the GBA Ram expansion in and out as well as with a retail GBA game, no difference what so ever!

    does your gba slot definetly work? i.e. can you boot gba games normally? was the gba game inserted when you started the homebrew? i'm afraid i dont have any experience with this particular homebrew, just the nds backup tool, which is pretty much the same tool only for nds games...

    Yes I’m able to play GBA games on my DS fine.

    I have tried the 0.1 version of this tool on my DS which works perfectly, however 0.21 refuses to work, it would be nice to get it working so I can backup my eeprom based saves.

    I believe Rudolph was asked to remove all support of M3 products from his software which explains why the M3 Real isn't detected. =\

    I see, that would explain it. Any idea why he was asked to remove support for M3 products? That’s a bit of a shame.

    I don’t suppose there is a hack to get it working with an M3?

    I can't remember if there was an actual reason or not.

    I'm pretty sure there was a hack that came out that re-added M3 support but I can't remember if it was for the GBA Backup Tool or one of the other tools. Still, I suggest not using the hack if you do find it because the hack was was disrespectful and the reason why Rudolph actually discontinued further development in his NDS tools.
