    after spending 20 minutes inputting a golden password for golden sun 2, i tried saving the game and much to my horror it said "Could not find backup data" and thusly i was unable to save my game

    Which flash card? Ez Flash has made quite a few cards.

    I think this can be corrected using Visual Boy Advance emulator. Use it to enter the password to transfer your progress and then maybe play for a minute or two, and then save. Transfer the save to your EZ Flash IV cart. :)

    Set Visual Boy Advance save settings to Automatic (or Flash, I can't remember) and 64K for the size. You could also try SRAM patching the game with GBATA and then trying directly on the EZ Flash IV again. Give VBA a shot though, it should work, and please report back to let us all know the status. Thanks Grink. :)

    Link to a thread you might be interested in :D

    Did you use the EZClient to put the game? (it generates a savefile, or EZ4 won't save)

    Either that, or a dry battery?

    I guess I shouldn't assume by your gbatemp join date that you know the basics. My fault entirely. I apologize. Use the EZ Flash Client to send roms to your mini sd card.
