    More details are needed. What exactly are you using to dump the GBA saves, and where did you get it from? If you're using a DS flashcart, do other things work properly?

    I'm using an R4 card I got off ebay, everything else seems to work fine like playing roms and stuff. I'm trying to use rudolphs gba back up save program to extract it and keep getting the error.

    And where did you download it from!?

    I suggest savegame-manager, though you might need to use that in conjunction with a PC running smallftpd.

    I got it from projectpokemon, and the savemanager you sent just goes blackscreen and nothing else happens

    Alright side note, I heard you could do it, with an action replay dsi, so i've been trying to use that but the gba backuptool keeps giving a "data transfer failed please do it again" error and even with the right dldi patches to the savemanager i keeo getting an error

    Did you read the instructions? Are you running smallftpd on your PC?

    Also, how did you patch it?

    So, do you get a blank screen, or what? The more details you can provide, the more likely it is that someone will be able to help you.

    I patched it using a dldi patcher? I thought that was clear from the context. So i'm not getting the dldi error on the gba backup tool anymore, but i'm getting the data tansfer failed error. I don't need smallftpd for anything cause the other save manager wouldn''t work no matter what I did. I tried it normally and all I got was a black screen and if i tried patching it I got a DLDI error. With godmode9 it just boots into the menu, like the regular godmode9 menu but I can't really do anything from there.

    If you don't provide details, then all people can do is randomly guess, and that's just going to waste everyone's time.

    Which DLDI patcher!?

    And what exactly did you do? Did you read the instructions? Did you include savegame_manager.ini on your SD card?

    What does "can't really do anything" mean? Does the program respond at all?

    dldiwin32 patcher tool
    and yes i read the instructions it didn't work
    it means I can't do anything, it responds fine, but I can't do anything. It's a dslite not a 3ds, it doesn't really do much
