    i got my saved files off my acekard 2 my AK2 broke thats why this is what i did

    create a folder called DS ROMS then added all my NDS ROMS INCLUDING THE SAVED FILES .nds.sav

    then when i play/boot up a game i click load and it says nothing just new files..??

    what FW
    1.41?
    1.51 Beta 1?
    1.51 Beta 2?

    saves should go in the same folder as the ROM with the same name (NORMAL LAYOUT, 1.41)
    X:/game.nds
    X:/game.sav

    on
    1.51 check the setting
    i think there a setting for alternative save layout
    look at this

    if a comes from a different cart you may need to convert it

    Make sure the name of the save file and the ROM file are exactly the same, and the tags at the end of the save file is .sav and not .nds.sav

    Remove the .nds tag from the save file. CycloDS save files are .sav only.

    He has a tendency to ignore all logical thought Ryu. Don't take it personally. [​IMG]

    And apparently thinks talking in CAPS makes people listen, seems to do the opposite for me [​IMG]

    Indeed. I've wrote around 5 comments, saying he shouldn't make these nooby threads, and do it himself, and he completely ignored all of them, and only responding to all the people that answered his question.

    He's the noob of the year.
