    I'm using the wifi backup tool to backup my saves but I ran across one game where it says my save type is unknown and I cannot back up the game save, Any ideas on whats wrong or how to fix this?

    Forgot to mention it was Pokemon Heart Gold i'm attempting to back up

    Might help if you tell the name of the game.

    Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver are built differently from other cartridges so the normal methods (wifi backup tool, etc.) don't work.
    There isn't no software tool to back up HG/SS save files. You can purchase the NDS Adapter Plus to backup the save files, though.

    I haven't heard about this until now.

    He's not really wrong... that tool was specifically written to back up saves from HG/SS and should work for other games with an IR port.
    The normal methods, which would be the NDS Backup Tool series of apps, do not work and until that was written the only way to back up the save was the NDSAdapter Plus
