    Yes, with a tool called "NDS Backup Tool" or something like that.

    yup like he said also you can back up your game this way but it takes longer than a slot 2 card. but i havn't had a successful backup yet i tried to backup my pokemon platinum save and it was 250ish kb which it shoulda been 500ish and the save dont load with a platinum rom or with pokesav even though they hav the same name

    You should probably do a little more research on what type of save it needs to be to send, it sounds like that's your problem. With so many different savetypes, it's easy to end up having a problem like this.

    It's not just the size, but the type. Modern flash carts all like to use the same save type (for example the Acekard 2i and Supercard DSTWO can swap saves with no issue), but some carts may need theirs converted.
