    Hey guys. I was wondering whether it is actually possible to transfer my Pokemon Platinum save from no$gba into a dsi. I've read up on quite a bit about this issue as some people say it's possible while others said it's not.

    So from what I gathered, the process is:
    - Change the configuration setting of SAV from Compressed/Uncompressed to Raw
    - Convert the file on http://www.shunyweb.info/index.php

    I'd greatly appreciate it if anyone could tell me whether this process actually works since this gunna be the most important factor in whether I'm going to buy a dsi. Thanks a lot, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have no idea what you mean (flashcart or commercial cart...though either way you need a flashcart), but its probably possible. I don't remember if I even changed the settings for no$gba. I just convert and shove it onto my flashcart and it seems to work just fine.

    Oh sorry! I meant flashcart. Since it worked for you, I was wondering which flashcart are you using?

    I've tried it with an AK2i/R4 (they both use the same format and they both worked).

    I tried this on my friend's M3 (his ds is very first model, the phat one) and it didn't work. What I did was use the game manager to load the rom, and the copy/pasted the save file into the save-file-folder. It read the file as if it were an empty save. Maybe this just doesn't work for the m3?

    You have to convert the save using a save converter otherwise it won't be readable by the flashcart.

    o.0 Does your friend have an M3Real? There are two different entries, one for M3 and another for M3Real.

    Yeah I did use Shuny's convertor. For source format, I'm supposed to pick "no$gba save" right?

    Yeah...and your output should be the "G6 DS Real | M3 DS Real (.0)" if the M3 used is an M3 Real/M3iZero.

    Well, try converting it to the acekards .sav
    Those saves work on my little brother his Acekard AND my M3real, withouth converting them to each other.

    I think .0 is a save format used a long time ago.
