    Hi,

    Question for you. Do any of the flashcarts for the DS support dumping save files from GBA cartridges to SD cards? I would need it to be able to write a save file back to the cartridge as well.

    I want to play through a Pokemon game on a PC and then transfer the save file to the cart for play on an original DS or a GBA SP.

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    All of them, as long as you find the proper homebrew.

    Homebrew? I'm confused.

    I'm talking about the original DS, not the 3DS. The usage of the flashcarts requires a modded DS?

    No, homebrew can be ran on flashcarts.

    Ah, so the flashcarts do not support dumping save files by default?

    Could you please point me to a proper homebrew and a compatible flashcart?

    All flashcarts are compatible, and use GBA Backup Tool

    my dad works for nintendo.
    you need a program to do that, it's not a function that is built in any card.. you can use any flashcart that you can get nowadays

    it's a program that you run on a cart, doesn't matter which one
