    I have a Supercard DSTWO and a 3DS XL, I'm gonna buy Pokemon Black 2 for PokeTransporter and I want to know if there's a way to backup/restore save files using a flashcard only, savegame manager ds worked with my DS Lite but I had to give it away, I tried savegame manager but it keeps giving me the same error ''Flash 0KB'' (my guessing its the automatic cartridge detect, so it doesn't allow for hot swapping I guess)

    I had to use an older version of savegame manager for it to work, 0.2.4 beta to be specific. Haven't had any issues with it, and it works very simply, compared to the newer versions not working at all.

    But did it worked with your DSi/3DS?

    Worked with my XL, though I haven't/can't test in my regular 3ds.

    Didn't work with my 3DS XL and I used the 0.24 version as well.

    Not sure what to say, I had to try a ton of different versions before it worked for me.

    I use my DS Lite, R4 and EZFlash v to dump and restore saves from Retail Pokemon carts. if you like I can do that for you.

    Sorry I didn't see you live in Portugal, it probably won't be cost effective to mail out.
