    I got my girls the cyclods for Christmas (so I do have a little time?) I had not found this site (and info was difficult to find) so I didn't know you needed wifi to transfer their current games onto my computer to make the backup copies on the cyclods. Does anyone know of some other way (adapter or something) that I could use to do this (they have all these games and, my youngest daughter keeps loosing them and then the fight is on...) Anyone???

    you can get a Slot-2(GBA type card) called an Ez 3-in-1
    and
    there are tools the will let you back-up your DS games without WiFi

    NDS Backup Tool 3in1 v0.31

    You could just download the games, but then you wouldn't be able to get the sav files without a slot-2 device. I think the only Slot-1 non WiFi tool doesn't work right when backing up sav games

    Most foolproof solution is to buy a cheap slot-2 cart (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.2734) and backup the files with Rein.

    Rein is only for backing up saves.

    Not to sound dumb but, how does it work? I think that has been the hardest thing to figure out (the discription only says that it's for use with nds and nds lite). Do you put it in the gba slot and then what happens???

    Which is the only thing you need to backup since the game files are freely available on the INTERNET~~!

    Put the card in the gba slot, put your backup tool on your slot-1 microsd, run the tool, follow instructions
