    I just bought me a sweet ass CycloDs (waiting for it to come) but I have a quick question regarding saves and I havnt seen it on the boards (well, the first few pages anyway). Can I just drag and drop my saves from my M3DSSimply or do I need to use some sort of save converter? The reason why I ask is because both carts use .sav format so I wouldnt think I would have to convert. Thanks in advance!

    You have to convert them, just use this online site to convert your save files.

    Edit

    Sorry my mistake, i think you dont have to convert them since they are both sav files. But i could be wrong.

    The filename extension doesn't matter. The R4/M3 Simply and the Cyclo Evo use 512KB raw saves, so they can use save files from each other, or any other flashcart that uses raw 512KB save files.

    I made same change: from R4 to CycloDS, and all my old SAV files work fine in the new one.
    No need to convert them.

    The M3 and G6 Real both use 512KB raw saves, but they name them .0 instead of .sav. All you need to do is rename them and they should work.

    If you have a lot of saves to rename you can do it automatically with this (Windows only): http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=1354

    What about bringing TTDS savs to the Cyclo?

    Same thing. You don't have to convert them. Just make sure the file names match up.
