    I recently bought a DSTWO for my 3DS, as I originally had an R4 for my DS. I transferred all of the data from my R4 to the DSTWO. It seems that all the games read the game saves except for my pokemon games (I want to finish White 2, specifically).

    I looked around and found that there is a save converter, but the save for the R4 and the DSTWO, seem to be the same format. Also, I did find this thread: http://gbatemp.net/threads/pokemon-white-save-gone-in-dstwo.281528/, but I am not sure what the last person is referred to by "slot 2".

    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    How are your rom and save files named?

    Pokemon White 2.nds for rom
    Pokemon White 2.nds.sav for save

    There is also a Pokemon White 2.SAV, but I am not sure what the purpose of that is

    Change
    Code:
    Pokemon White 2.nds.sav
    to

    Code:
    Pokemon White 2.sav
    And you'll be good ;)

    The R4's use a slight variation of the typical naming convention for the save files, as you can see now. Don't worry, it catches a lot of people off guard.

    And on the flip side, should you ever (for some reason) want to put it back on to your R4, just change it from

    Code:
    Pokemon White 2.sav
    to

    Code:
    Pokemon White 2.nds.sav
    And you should be good to go!

    Cheers ;)

    Edit - I guess, in reality, everything now uses a slight variation of the naming convention, and the R4 is doing it the original way since it was one of the first major flashcarts to hit the market. I digress, however.

    Edit 2 - Also, that Pokemon White 2.SAV that you said was originally there was the save file that the DSTWO automatically created when you booted the rom for he first time. I'm assuming you already figured it out since you claim to have gotten it working, but THAT first one can be deleted safely (Just PLEASE make sure if you are going to delete anything now that you're NOT deleting your current save. I mean, I think it's only a 256KB save so if you choose to play it safe you're not really out any space.)

    Wood has an option to look for and use one filename or the other, so you could change that option too for future use.
