    It's possible, but not with the R4 or the 3-in-1. You'll either need a slot 2 cart with full DLDI support and GBA capabilities, or you'll need to build an Xboo cable to plug your GBA into your PC.

    Here we are, a year down the road since your last reply Destructobot...

    Is the answer still the same? I want to extract the save game from a commercial GNA cart and
    [*]back it up (to my hard drive and/or Slot 1 memory) [*]restore said file to the commercial cart and[*]use that save file with a GBA ROM played from a Slot 2 device like EZ-Flash 3-in-1 or M3 Lite...
    Ideally I'd like to do this totally within the DS -- without resorting to cables connecting the GBA cart to the PC or other such stuff.

    I have at my diposal:
    • R4DS
    • EZ-Flash V (slot 1)
    • EZ-Flash 3-in-1
    • M3 Lite
    Are things different today than last June? Can someone translate this to Japanese so Rudolph can work on it? [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Well, you do have a slot 2 flashcart with DLDI support, so you could potentially use cart_save (see above link). In fact, I would very much appreciate it if you would give it a try, as I have yet to see a single report of it working or not with the M3 Perfect.

    The only real change in the situation is that Rudolph released his GBA Backup Tool, and it can read and write most GBA save types from a slot 1 flashcart (some (or maybe all) EEPROM save types are not supported).

    For what it's worth, cart_save does work with my slot-2 Supercard miniSD, but I'm sure you're aware of the "re-inserting slot-2 Supercard resets the DS" issue. By pushing the right side in first and going REALLY slowly, I can insert the Supercard without the DS resetting, but it doesn't always work and usually isn't worth the hassle.

    I know you wanted M3 Perfect data, but I thought you might appreciate this tidbit nonetheless.
