    would I still be able to play the game I saved on my computer to my R4 with all my saved information and all?

    Yes, but first you must go into the No$GBA configuration file and change the save type from compressed to raw and use http://www.shunyweb.info/convert.php to convert the raw saves.

    after converting the save file for the r4, is there a way to convert it back so that I can continue to play on the computer? I play my ds on my personal time and on the computer when I have free time at work. I just want to know if there is a way to convert back and forth.

    The R4 uses raw saves, so no$gba should be able to use them directly.

    BTW, if no$gba spits out 512KB save files when you set it to use raw saves, you won't need to convert them for use on most flashcarts.

    You need to edit the NO$GBA.INI file and change the setting in there.

    .ini files are plain text. Open it in a text editor (e.g. Notepad).
