    Hi,

    I now have my M3 Real with sakura firmware on it. I have inserted the GBA expansion pack into the slot too.

    I have put GBA ROMs and DS ROMs onto the SD Card. I can play the DS ROMs fine, but when I got to play the GBA ROMs they complain of corrupt saves.

    Am I supposed to use a particular piece of software to transfer the GBA ROMs to the SD card? I just transferred them via the OS.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hmmm, weird....Try formatting your microSD card, and then copy all stuff back up....

    GBA games don't require anything other than copy & paste to microSD......

    Thanks.

    Tried formatting and copying everything back over to the SD card but no joy.

    I have just downloaded the 'M3 Game Manager' program and when I ask it to copy the gba files over it seems to work just fine. I think it patches the ROMs, something about option 'Hardware 1'?

    I now have a folder called 'GAMESAVE' on the root of my SD card too.

    Oh well, I guess I'll have to keep using this awkward method?

    This is actually patching a game (manually), and it's used for M3 Lite!

    But you weren't supposed to do it with M3 Real!
    All GBA games I tried were working just perfectly with drag & drop....

    I have no idea what could it be...

    Perhaps it's because I'm using Sakura F/W?

    Or maybe I just have dodgy ROMs?

    Thank you for your continued help.

    Don't mention it, it's not like I actually helped you for now!! [​IMG]

    Well, I'm using Sakura since the day they released it, and GBA games work without any problems..
    Might be that ROMs are faulty, but I doubt it.........Try to download some game again, and try then..
