    Well, not a lot to explain given the title. Lets say I buy a game, and while I have the ROM file and a fairly well-played savefile, would there be a way to transfer the save I have on my flashcart to the legal card?

    I have a Slot-2 M3 Perfect SD if that matters.

    I don't really know, all i do know is that you can transfer a save from a nintendo cart to a flash cart by using action replay to make a backup save file. So i suppose that you may be able to you action replay cart to put a save file onto a nintendo cart.

    Sorry if i couldn't help much.

    Buy the Action Replay Duo.
    It can Backup and restore save files.
    Though, I think you have to convert it in some kind of way, but I think that's possible with the AR software.

    You can use Savsender to do it over wifi or use REIN/REINMOON/EEPINATOR/RAC

    I have an M3 Perfect as well, and I've found Chishm's Cart Save to be the best program to use.

    Here's a lil' tutorial:

    Step 1) Go here, and convert the DAT save file to an "EZ-Flash IV" type save.
    Step 2) DLDI patch the .GBA this file: cart_save.zip
    Step 3) Copy the converted .SAV file and the patched cart_save.gba file to the M3, and boot it up.
    Step 4) Run cart_save and follow the on-screen directions.

    Oh wow, thanks for all of the replies. I'll try gbpic's method since I have only one DS (so WiFi probably won't work) and I'd rather not have to buy anything on top of my legal game purchase. =P

    So can you use Savsender to grab save games from an Original DS Cart Game? Or is it just to send the Flash Cart saves to an Original cart? [​IMG]

    All you need is Eepinator or Rudolph's NDS Backup Tool (slot 2 version). Either one should let you transfer saves to and from commercial DS carts with your M3 Perfect.

    Cart Save is only for GBA saves.


    Both ways. You can also use Eepinator or Rudolph's NDS Backup tool depending on what hardware you have to work with.

    Oh wow, thanks. I'll look into Rudolph's tool and find a game to try it on. If anything, I can always do a test run on Metroid Prime Pinball since I'm too paranoid about my saves otherwise.
