    Some games offer you an "DataReset" or "Delete All Data" Option in the Option-Menu, others are using a "Button-Hold-On-Boot-Up-Combination"

    But i just can't erase my savedata in..

    - Street Fighter Upper Zero 3 (JAP)
    - Pia Carrot Yokosou 3.3 (JAP)
    - Card Captor Sakura - Mini Game (JAP)
    - Dokey Kong Mini Classic (JAP)

    Any help? I know or at least guess that there are some games who really don't have any Option to delete all saved data. Does anyone know a trick? I own an EZ-Fash II USB Writer - Can i use this device to kill the saves? Also owning an F2A-USB Cable. Is there a programm existing for doing this?

    Just make a empty save with VBA and then overwrite the flashcart with that save file you just made.

    I do that on games that are screwed up or I messed up a game where I missed something important. It is sometimes faster to do just that.

    It depends on the flashcart your using.

    EZ-Flash II EZClient:
    Use the write saver icon to write your empty save over the current game's save.

    F2A method:
    Use the saver icon in F2A to write your empty save over the current game's save.

    your suppose to use the hammer, it is 100% effective of erasing.

    Nah... [​IMG]

    The games are not on a flash card, i mean original carts.

    I tried already yesterday what you recommend - I guess the EZ Software isn't able to write down a save file to an original cart. But why?

    Use GBA backup tool to earse the save with a blank save from VBA.

    Same thing, you overwrite the cart's save data with a blank one.

    And yes you can earse a retail game with a save with the other 2 ways. I do that with golden sun a few times, ok fine ALOT.

    Nope.

    I just found out that only SRAM and Flash Saves can be saved to an original card. Not EEPROM.
    And all 4 games above are having EEPROM. [​IMG] - Your Golden Sun has Flash-Save [​IMG]

    GBA Backup Tool? This is an NDS Programm right?

    I guess it is really impossible to erase the save data of this roms.

    Those F***** Japanese Guys who have "forgotten" any DataDelete Option! [​IMG]

    You can also use a Game Shark, the interact version. It supports EEEPROM save types.

    With GBA backup tool you have to use the visual basic script to prep the EEPROM save before writing it to the cart. Or did you think you were cleaver to think I overlook that.

    Ok, I tried different things with GBA_BACKUP_TOOL 0.21, i was using a DS-Linker to launch the Programm.

    My Problems are: Very often, it won't detect the GBA Carts... and... after using the "Initialize the save area of the rom"-Option, i won't detect the carts i used it on anymore. Also it stucked at 50% and the saver on the carts is still there [​IMG]

    Maybe i'am to stupid... must i DLDI patch the App? What am i doing wrong? Can you give me a step by step Guide [​IMG]

    Try having the game in the DS before you turn it on, it helps with the detection.

    Press X to have it redetect the game.
