    duc and dss files can be converted to RAW saves aka supercard aka EZflash aka just about everything else save M3 and DSX by using max2sc:

    From here it should be simple enough to use on an r4 (generate a 256 kilobyte file and add it on the end if memory serves).

    Read the instructions.

    After that just run it through the R4 save converter.

    You ran the save through max2sc, then the R4 save converter, right? If so, then it probably is a bad file.

    Thanks this is very helpful. Can't find the save converter though. Hoping it works with my N5 when I do find it.
