    I know it's piosible to upload sav files from real DS games, but I'm wondering if you can stick a sav file back into a cart. I've been playing HG and want to pick it up, but don't like the idea of having to start all over again frmo scratch. Is this possible to do?

    If this isn't the right room, my apologies.

    That's one of the more expensive ways to go about doing that. You could just use a 15 dollar flashcart to backup and restore saves, while also being about to play roms and do other things.

    The slot2's are better for rom dumping. Since save files don't really get bigger than 1 MB, you could easily do it via wifi (unless you have no wireless router).

    Have you actually tried on HeartGold or SoulSilver? The new carts have a different architecture or something... no homebrew app is currently able to backup or restore their saves. Right now, the NDS Backup Adapter Plus is the only way to do it.

    How about the new wood dumper for either slot-1 or slot-2? I don't own the game so I can't try it with either of these games, but I'm curious of you've tried it.

    Isn't the wood dumper only for ROMs? The current homebrew can already dump the Hg/Ss ROM. We're just talking about the saved data.

    No and no. HGSS is different. That is all.

    Nope. Someone may eventually see fit to update the existing backup tools; but I doubt there's going to be a rush put on this.

    Your best bet is just get the USB adapter from Console Source... they don't seem to be overcharging, based on what I can see.
