    Hey everyone, please post everything that you have used to accomplish Pokemon Pearl and Diamond saving. So far I have spent over 5 hours trying different combinations ranging from re-formatting the Micro SD card to downloading 10 different versions of loaders, patches, romlists and even going out and buying a new Micro SD card >.

    Thank you very much for uploading it. I extracted everything onto a formatted Micro SD card, then copied the kernel to the core folder, made a folder named saver, and then sent Pokemon Diamond. I booted up my DS and held onto R, then after that I rebooted and it said "First in or not enough power". Could this be a possible hardware error, and if so, please specifiy what you think is wrong. Thanks.

    Your method didn't work. Hardware error perhaps?

    This is EXACTLY what I did:

    Formatted to FAT
    Extracted the files you gave me to micro sd
    Booted up and pressed R
    Sent Pokemon Diamond to DS
    Tried to save, same error:fail to power up blah blah blah

    does the hardware (battery) have anything to do with this?

    it may be yor battery, but before you go spend liek a fiver on a battery, try downloading the ROM from 5 different sites (becuase it could be a bad upload), and patch it through.

    PS DONT EXTRATC ANY FILE TO THE MICRO SD!

    ONLY THE ezfla_up.bin WHEN FRSHLY FAT FORMATTED!

    then delete it. and patch the rom onto the mictro SD.

    Nope, didn't work. I give up. 3 different Micro SDs, 3 different computers, 3 different card readers, 2 different NDSLs and only 1 of them worked, and that was done by my little brother >.<

    Hey, is the battery on the EZIV lite replaceable by the way?

    Hey, I had your problem too when I first got mine. I popped it open and realized the battery connector wasnt holding the save battery in place properly (it was partially snapped). Which is why you get that error AND why your games arent saving (because they dont back up to file cause after you power down the battery isnt connected to store it).

    You can probably return it or what I did was just lay it on where it should be and soldered it back on. It's been working fine for a long time now.

    Thanks for replying, but I don't think it is the battery as I've used 2 different EZIV lite cartridges, and they both save fine with other games =/

    i had an EZflash V, and i had the same problem. i dont know if it can be done this way, but can u change the type of save ur EZFLASH saves? the EZV lets you set the save type while in file browser mode.

    if u can, change it to 4M, then load the game, play, save, turn off, reboot, change it to 4M again, and see if the save's there.

    Your opinion has been noted, however the game isn't released here for another 2 months.

    I have an R4, and the first time I tried saving, it didn't work. But after that it worked for some strange reason.

    Sorry to hear that you're having such a hassle with it.
    You say you are 3 hours from Sydney.. where abouts are you? I only ask as I'm about 3 hours from Sydney and have it working fine on my EZ4 lite deluxe. Maybe we could meet up if you're not too far and I can help? PM me if you like.

    And RAM.. you're asking for a BAN
