    I had tried many times.
    It is my operation video.



    Could anyone help check whether the operation is error ?

    BTW, the struct is : ( [7:] FAT IMAGE -> savedata -> 3 files ), right ?

    Seem right to me. I've done about 10 jpn consoles without issues.

    Make sure the folder you're copying is the folder with the files and not the container folder also try downloading the save again

    This 3ds region is JPN,so I use zelda.
    Do you mean that under the "[7:] FAT IMAGE " is a .bin , not "/savedata/.bin" ?


    Let me check again ...

    Did you delete before you wrote the save?

    Did you delete the savedata folder on the fat image? I don't remember deleting it and just pasted and over wrote it you may wantto try that. It looks like youdeleted the fat image before writing it

    Couldn't you just use the premade public.sav image?

    Keep in mind the target app needs exactly a 16KB save for this to work.

    I know the game will delete the save if not exactly 16k. You either have the wrong save or as i mentioned instead of deletingthe folder then copying paths just copy paths and overwrite the file

    Just watched the video for a 5th time op is using an incompatible game with a 120kb save file :-p

    After you mentioned about it, It's ocurred to me that I forgot to check size of. sav...

    The first I copy to the wrong folder and didn't detect.


    So I went to here to download save file.
    Unexpectedly, it is the biggest wrong.

    Haha,sorry for my poor video quality.

    Thanks zoogie and Ronhero :D

    OP is using the right game, but that's a good catch on the save file size. It has to be 16kb. Not sure why OP ended up with a 128kb save.

    Glad this got resolved, I was scratching my head at it last night. :)
