    You could start by telling us what are you using to load GBA games

    Exactly what you said you did.

    Don't patch (manually)

    GBAEXploader auto patches roms that need it now.

    Try some virgin roms.

    Golden sun and shining force work for me...

    You only need exploader. The old version (tool) is just that. old, its the one that needs pre-patched roms.

    You need to use the RTC patch for the Pokemon games. Download GBATA and it's an option in that.

    Real Time Clock patch. I think it patches it so it uses the DS clock instead of looking for it in the cart. Can't be 100% certain as I've never used it.

    Maybe you've got a dead battery in the 3-in-1. Do any games work?

    Virgin = unpatched with gbata or ezflash tool. Try other sites for your rom 'backups' to ensure an unaltered dump is what you're using.

    The games save just fine for me, I tested them the first time I read this thread just to be sure. If absolutely NO games save then there could be an error with your 3 in 1. If some games do save but others do not then its more likely a patch issue.

    If you only have gbata patched roms (to allow sram saving), then DO try the old '3 in 1 tool' (linked at the bottom of that page) and use the PATCHED games with it to see if they save...

    You only need unpatched roms when using 'exploader'.
