    According to the guide EZV quickstart guide, to backup save files from, and to copy save files to the 3in1 you have to do the following:
    But pressing R+X brings up a delete file dialog box, and pressing R+Y only makes it say "Copy..." in the bottom-right corner. I've searched everywhere for a solution, and tried different programs like GBAExploader, but nothing seems to work. Please help, as I don't wish to start all over from the beginning for all my GBA games....

    My slot-1 cart is EZflash Vi.

    I don't know anything about the EZV(i), but there's always the third-party solution. Rudolph's GBA ExpLoader for instance.

    If the game is loaded to PSRAM, the save is automatically backed up to a file on reboot.

    When I boot a game using GBAexploader it stops at the GB logo without the Nintendo logo, as if there is no game in there at all.
    I can get a game onto the 3in1 and play it using the EZflash firmware, but I want to get my old GBA saves to work with them instead of starting over.

    Write a ROM to NOR then try to boot it as a regular GBA game from the DS main menu.
    When you want to get your save file onto your Micro SD card, go back to Exploader and press B to copy SRAM to a save file (Usually located at root:\GBA_SAVE)
