    I don't think you would want to choose a replacement cart for your R4, based purely on whether your game saves are compatible, but anyway...If I get time I'll test a save from my old original R4DS on my AK2i and will advise.

    Just rename them from .SAV .sav then change the save file size for each game to 512kb in the akAIO settings for each game. If you have been using YSmenu on your R4 check your saves. Some may be 4kb and some will still be 512kb. You will need to adjust the save setting for each game accordingly.
