    Hello,

    I have a question for anyone who knows. I was wondering if there was a homebrew application that's able to transfer files from a MicroSD card, (like from the Acekard's MicroSD Card) and transfer the files to the DSi's SD Card. I basically need a way to transfer files to an SD Card. Any help from anyone would be appreciated, thank you!

    I think we would need to be able to have access to DSi mode for that sort of thing, so its not possible (I think).

    As jurassic stated, the SD slot is part of the DSi hardware and is therefor not available in DS mode which all DSi carts currently run in.

    If you want to transfer files, why not just buy a usb SD card reader?

    He says "On NDS".
    BTW I'm wondering how NDS_Backup_Tool is implemented... Possibly if fatUnmount() is done correctly we can:
    1.Eject flashcart
    2.Replace microSD
    3.Reinsert flashcart

    Possibly, but that would mean that you would have to make several dozen runs for files larger than a few MB (DS ram limitations).

    Also DSi doesn't allow ejecting and reinserting a DS card. You could leave the DS card in and just click the MicroSD card in and out, but only if you have a clicky top loader.
