    I've gotten Zelda:Phantom hourglass to work properly with the arm7 patch and I can play properly it as long as I don't actually play another game.
    I seem to come across a little problem with the auto backup system.

    It keeps telling me
    "Warning! NDS GAME SAVE in card but CANNOT find ATUOSAVE backup file. Backup fail! Press A to continue."

    Its pretty bad since I can play Zelda but not other games, because if I play other games (or even use any homebrew for that matter) all the hardwork I put into Zelda magically disappears.

    Can anyone offer me a solution?

    are you using the latest firmware? Which firmware are you currently using?

    Are you sure you didn't just copy the game to your M3 using explorer or some other filemanager? You have to use the M3 game manager to create a blank save file properly.

    As g6team suggests, flash your M3 with the newest firmware. Zelda's save ram is twice as big as most other games. Older firmwares can't handle that.

    I found out the problem.

    Its a capitalisation problem, my .nds file started with a captial yet my save file was all in small caps.

    Ie, Zelda.nds and zelda.dat.


    It works perfectly now, thanks for the replies though. =)
