    I use the Supercard Lite. I have no problem playing the GBA games.

    However, when i save my games normally (like doing it on console), the SC won't load the saves when i reboot my NDS system.

    instead, on the root directory of my flashcard, it shows the name of the last GBA game i played with the words: (in card)

    For example, if i play Final Fantasy IV advance. i save my game. I can load teh game i just saved. However, if I turn off my Nintendo DS, and turn it back on, on the root directory, it will show the following:

    final fantasy IV (in card)


    If i select it, it will freeze. If i select my FFIV Advance ROM, i will notice that my savegame is gone.

    How do i save properly?

    You've 2 ways to save when playing GBA roms; "save state" and in-game saves. You're trying to do an in-game save, where you save normally, but you're not writing the save to your microSD. To do this, save like you are doing in FF IV, and then do a L+R+A+Select to write your .sav to your flash memory.

    The other way is the "save state" method. This will save your game's exact state; when you load it up again, you'll start exactly where you left off. Do a L+R+B+Select; your SCLite will ask you if you want to write your state to your SD or if you'd like to load a state (you can patch your roms to utilize multiple "save" states).

    Navigate to your SC's "help" menu, and you'll see these key combos listed.
