    Hi guys

    I have both versions of Pokemon in the same flashcard right now, Diamond for me and Pearl for my sister.
    The problem is that sometimes the Diamond save file overwrites the Pearl save file... [​IMG]
    Pearl had a corrupted save once, and after that, this overwriting thing started.... do you have any advice?

    I transfered both ROMs using DoFat + Force R/W, my G6 firmware's version is 4.7

    The G6 may only use the first few characters of the game's name to recognize them.
    Rename one of them (and it's save file) to something like "123 Pokemon Pearl" and the other to "321 Pokemon Diamond" and see if the problem is solved.

    Looks like that was my problem... I renamed both, and the overwriting thing stopped!
    Thanks a lot! [​IMG]

    They had their release names before... I think it was lgc-pkmd.nds and lgc-pkmp.nds
    To fix it, I put their release numbers before the rom name... no problems so far
