    Hi. Im trying to run savsender on my dsi. It works fine, dumps my sav to the pc, and I can confirm that it's 512 KB in size. But I can't get my rom to recognize it and neither would my pokesav. I need help in making this work or can someone suggest something else?
    It is a Pokemon Pearl cart save that I am trying to backup. I am trying to run it on my flashcart (ak2i) and the name of the .nds file is a.nds and its a.sav for the save file. And before anyone suggests, I get the cannot read from flash error when I use eepinator and NDS Backuptool failed as well

    what more do you need to know to understand that the save file becomes corrupted and you can't repair it?

    corrupt saves are usually because their crc check failed. This could be caused because not EVERYTHING was sent? Try "sending" the save again

    Well, i have tried sending it about 5 times. Sav restore fails as well. By fails I mean that it sends the sav to the gamecart but the gamecart doesnt recongnize it and it shows new game.

    I don't think SavSender works with the Pokemon games. I believe they were the first games to use 1 MB save files, and SavSender was made back when the max was 512 KB, so it has no idea the second half of the save file even exists.

    Nope it does work with them. My diamond works with savsender and I have successfully sent it and replaced the save on mine. I think diamond/pearl uses 512kb saves while platnium uses 1mb saves.

    Hm, then I was mistaken. Could be the fact that it's running on a DSi then, but that's really the only other idea I've got.
