    GBA Backup Tool v0.2 came out a few days ago so I upgraded from v0.1 (which has been working fine, backed up a few carts ect...)
    anyway now this one just crashes the DS and turns it off when I try to boot it, a few other people in the release also said the same thing
    can anyone boot it, and if so what cart are you using?

    Seems to work perfectly on my Acekard 2, will try with my Scds v2 in a moment.

    Edit: No problems there either. Are you sure that you've created a folder named "GBA_Backup" in the root of your microSD/microSDHC?

    I think there is a GBA_SAVE folder and some other folder also
    not sure, will check

    v0.1 created those folder automatically for me
    as soon as I put v0.1 back on it boots up fine
    very strange

    maybe it has something to do with the auto DLID?
    I have the GBA_Backup folder on the root

    What utility are you using to extract the thing? If it is winzip, it sometimes messes up compressed files. I personally use 7-zip. I haven't tested this out yet though.

    Edit: Seems to be working fine.

    Works fine for me on my Acekard 2, created the GBA_Backup folder automatically for me and everything.

    I'm not certain about this, but I think ever since the M3 team threatened to sue Rudolph for supporting their products he has purposely made his software incompatible with them.
