    go into your dsystem folder open up the global file, go down the list untill you see writable=0 change the 0 to a 1. your homebrew should now save [​IMG]

    The DS Fire Link doesn't have DLDI support on their drivers. You'll need to download the new MK5 drivers and then install them over your current N-Card DS Fire Link ones. Then you can enable the DLDI auto patch and write as the user suggested. If you need more help contact me via the link in my sig and we can chat by IM step-by-step.

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=51313 . download the build 12 firmware and also follow the instructions willsey posted. after you update change the global file as i told you above. The passme functions is so you can boot up your slot 2 cards with out flashing your ds i think.

    am thinking you updated your firmware from an early version instead of a recent version 123o.

    follow these steps EXACTLY

    1. Create a folder called update onto your C: Drive on your harddrive
    (open my computer, click Drive C)

    2. Download the these 2 files and put them into the update folder created

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=469
    (N Card 1.23o update)

    http://www.dsgba.com/down/nand_stable_16.zip
    (N Card beta 16)

    3. Plug in the N Card writer into slot 2 and into an empty usb slot on your PC

    4 Switch on your NDS holding Buttons L,R,A,B and DOWN to do a format, RESTART YOUR NDS AFTERWARDS

    5. Switch on your NDS again Holding Buttons L,R,A,B and UP to put the card into flash mode. (USB SAFE BLOCK)

    6 Goto the update folder were you put the downloaded files and extract the NCARD 123o update (unc_123o_english.rar) .

    You should now have 2 folders UDISK and DSYSTEM,Go into the UDISK folder, with the NDS in flash mode and connected to your pc via the usb writer, click on the NAND_256k_ENG.bat file, after it has completed RESTART YOUR NDS AGAIN.

    7. Switch on the NDS with buttons L,R,A,B and Down again to do another format, once it has completed windows will regonize a mass storage device, copy the DSYSTEM folder from the update folder created earlier .

    once restarted your nds and card should be working as normal,

    *optional*

    As you were looking savestate support you need dldi write support.

    extract the other file downloaded (nand_statble_16.zip) into the update folder and copy my guide written here
