    I have a few questions.

    1. Can I play retail carts on emunand? If so can I do it on both Gateway and ReiNAND or is one of these restricted for retail carts?

    2. How do I get the save file out of my retail cart? I want to be able to use it with Gateway if I dump the game onto Gateway.

    1: Yes on Both no restrictions
    2: once you dump the Game (as cia) onto Emunand you can run JK's Save manager to dump the save from your cart and Copy it over to Your dumped game

    1. It doesn't seem like the carts are working on Gateway emunand for me. Oh well

    2. How do I dump the carts into .3ds or .cia files?

    3. How do I use JK's save manager to extract the save data from a cart?

    3: just run it it lets you choose retail cartt or cia
