    Extract a save file from a real DS cartridge, onto a type of SD media, which will be playable and identical to the save on the real cartridge?

    I believe NEOFlash had some kind of device that did that...

    You can use a slot 2 homebrew called Rein to extract saves, and from there you can convert it for use with flashcards

    Rein can write saves to retail carts, IIRC, but there are certain types that it can't write... It's been a while since I messed w/ it so the details are vague. [​IMG]

    Or you could use a device like the Datel GBA/DS Action Replay Duo.

    Pokemon has a really weird save system, it might not work at all

    I used eepininator to backup and restore my Pokemon save, and it worked just fine. However, if the save you are trying to put onto the cart is not the right size - ex, the Pokemon save needs to be 512KBs - You have to use a save converter. For the Pokemon save, just use the R4 save converter - Google it to find it - which always puts out 512KB saves. Then put the save on your slot-2 flashcart and use eepinator to load it on your game cart.

    PM me for a better explanation if that confuzzles you [​IMG] I kinda suck at explaining stuff sometimes :/

    I only have a slot 1 device, is it still possible to do an extraction though?
