    A while ago, I beat Emerald, before I had my M3. I got Leaf Green on my M3 and am trying to transfer Pokemon from my M3 Leaf Green -> (original) Emerald cartrage however every time I try to trade the two freeze up at the end of the transfer. Anyone have any idea how to get around this?

    i had this exact problem... but i noticed something with the games in my card... i had several versions of the same rom with diferent sizes in the M3 (dunno why they had diferent sizes..) but one with 16 MB would freeze at the end... but the game with 17 MB didnt, and it worked very well, try to transfer 3 Leaf Greens at the same time to the M3, and see if any of them has a diferent size... at least i did that, and it worked. z.z

    its a really odd problem... but did you try with diferent versions? i tried the same one, i used pokemon emerald (the same rom, several times) until it patched correctly. Its very odd...oh by the way i was using M3 Game Manager v29 and load e29 as well.

    Do you remember what settings you were using when you loaded the rom? When you said 'several times' did you mean you patched, then re-patched the same rom?

    Just saw this on the M3 website... Gonna try it out, let all of you know how it goes!

    Edit...
    Doesn't seem to work at all. Tried fresh load of Pokemon Emerald from scratch, still unable to transfer, still have same save problem even with v29 of M3 Game Manager.

    Going to try to reformat card... FAT instead of FAT32...

    Update!

    It's alive. Somewhere between formatting the SD card to FAT, and changing the save option on for the whole "Allow A+B+L+R saves", the transfers finally started working. Woo!

    Anyone with an M3 + SD card playing pokemon games:
    1) Upgrade your M3 software to v29 from the M3 player website http://www.m3adapter.com/Download.htm
    2) Format your SD card to FAT file system
    3) When copying Pokemon game to your SD card with M3, make sure the "Allow A+B+L+R saves" option is allowed.
    4) (if you have existing save file on your SD card, do the steps above)

    I've been trying to transfer from m3/cf via GBA link cable to leaf green cartridge. Anyone ever done this or is transfering to emerald the only one that is confirmed? I've tried all 5 roms in the 3rd generation none seem to work

    I do. Also were you guys that did this successfully using a GBA wireless adapter or GBA link cable. I don't see why it would make a difference but just wondering.
