    Forgive me if i'm posting this in the wrong section.

    So i played a bit of Castlevania dawn of sorrow on the No$GBA emulator via PC. Had a little fun used a cheat or two, wanted to go & use that save on my 3DS via TWLoader.
    I figured i'd just drag & drop the .sav file into my rom area on the SD card for TWLoader. That doesn't seem to work tho so i was wondering if it's even possible or am i doing it wrong.

    All help is appreciated

    I think you have to name the save file the same as the rom.

    I thought so too & they are exactly the same. Of course except for the .sav & .nds part.
    Still doesn't seem to work for me at all tho.

    I seemed to get it to work!

    I trashed No$GBA & used DeSmuME instead. Saved & grabbed that file, renaming the .dsv to .sav & it works on my 3DS now!
    So for the future if anyone else runs into this too. Don't use No$GBA.

    there might be a save converter somewhere that can convert your save, you could google nds save converter

    It's actually because of how No$GBA treats saves (you can change the save type in the options though). No need to use DeSmuME, just use No$GBA with the same setting as that the DS uses.

    That's exactly what i was doing! Maybe i was doing it wrong, picking the wrong options but when i grabbed the save file from the other emulator, changed the format & put it on my 3DS. It worked 1st time, compared to the No$GBA way which i've been trying since last night.

    @ThoD
    I wasn't aware of that! I will keep that in mind then. Thank you.

    That's exactly what i was using! Although i think i was choosing the wrong format to convert it to.
    Since i was at it for like an hour last night from no$gba to my 3ds but i winded up using another emulator & it worked 1st try.
    Thank you tho! Now i need to have a mod close this.
