    Alright, so I have an AR DSi (which can extract save files from the carts) and an SCDSTWO. I have an epic platinum save that I played with on my dstwo. I want to put on my retail platinum cartridge. I know how to convert it and all. However, I do not know how to "put" a save file on a cart. Its easy to extract them, but I do not know how to actually replace the save data inside a cartridge. Is it possible to do this? In case anyone has interest in downloading my save, I uploaded a ZIP containing it.

    Thanks for reading my question.

    Use savegame-manager, you can insert a flashcart save file onto a retail cart using Wi-Fi (requires a FTP server) or a slot2 flashcard (like EZ-Flash IV or EZ-Flash 3 in 1) although both those methods only work with a DS and DS Lite.
    I've used savegame manager to insert my flashcart Pokemon Soul Silver save file onto my used bought retail cart and it worked wonders.

    Is it possible with an ARDSI or is it just possible with Wifi? Because I have a DSi. I hear that you can manage saves with the AR (I have backed up retail cart saves before on it) but I dont know if it works the other way around.

    Pretty sure the Action Replay DSi has a way of backup DS save files, have you tried inserting your Platinum cart on your Action Replay DSi and then connecting to the PC and use the Action Replay's manager? There should be a backup option

    You can back up saves without using a PC. Just the ARDSI, DSI, and a microsd inserted. But I wanted to know if it works the other way around.

    IF there's a backup method, pretty sure the same could be reversed, otherwise there wouldn't be a backup option now would it :)

    Well, I could use the FTP method with my Brother's almost-broken dslite (hinge is broken quite a bit, but still works) but I have WPA security, and the DS and DSlite are not compatible with that.

    I would try the Action Replay method first.

    Even though the post above me is a bit of a shameless plug, I have to agree about the functionality of the save dongle. While it is mostly useless for 3DS games these days, it's still a highly useful tool for moving saves between flashcarts and retail carts. The raw saves that the dongle generates are natively compatible with most flashcarts available.
