    Hiya, I'm trying to dump a ROM using this guide : http://www.teamcyclops.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1942

    But the NDS Backup Tool WiFi says ''Can't connect with the Access Point of Wifi. Please confirm the Wifi settings''

    I'm sure I've done everything right from the guide. Is it because I'm using the Nintendo Wifi connector or is it something else?

    Any suggestions? Thanks. [​IMG]

    Yes, dumping games will not work with the wifi connector.
    You will need to be able to connect to a wireless router directly.

    Or you could use custom drivers. From what I've heard anyway.

    But with the normal drivers, the USB stick won't work with any homebrew.

    I didn't know the "common" person could make back-ups!

    That's good to know - I found some off-brand, unliscened DS game (Ford racing?) in a pawn shop...

    Dang. I don't have a wireless router or a 3in1 but I do have an as yet undumped game.

    Any truth is this custom driver stuff for the Nintendo Wifi?

    another problem here : i've done all the steps of the tuto without problems
    but when it's dumping, the DS freeze after near 10 mins.

    I've tested differents games :
    metroid prime demo, freeze at near 50%
    big brain academy, freeze at 28%

    so what is the problem? i'm using a 1st day EUR fat DS, with m3simply
    (i've tried to DLDI patch the homebrew but the result is the same..)

    need your advices guys !
