    So I have a M3Real now.
    Ive had a R4DS for a year now, and I have over 60 savegames for my DS roms.
    I was wondering if there is a program where I can load all those saves in, and then converts it to the .0 format of the M3Real, so I can play those saves on my new flashcart.
    Because I aint gonna load 60+ files on shunyweb.

    They use the exact same format. Rename the .sav to .0 and you're sorted.

    As someone who owns both the R4 and the M3Real, yes. Anyway, back up all your saves first if you're worried.

    Damn the forum sure is slow today.

    Tnx, it worked.
    It was quite a bit of work, renaming 100+ DS roms, but I did it nonetheless [​IMG]

    I have another questions though:

    I keep all my roms (GBA and DS) in folders.
    IE:

    I have a folder Super Mario Kart, and in that folder there is a .gba file and the save file.

    But the M3Real doesnt seem to recognize those folders, so I have too do some weird stuff so I could play my rom...
    Is there any way my M3Real will recognize the folders?

    Basically, to make the M3 read your roms by default, put all your DS roms and saves in the "NDS" folder and all your GBA files and saves in the "GBA" folder. The firmware doesn't organise your roms very well, unfortunately.

    Or you may be able to run it in the MyCard function - not sure though.

    To rename them easily from .sav to .0 in Windows, open a DOS terminal window (in Windows XP, go to Start, Run, type 'cmd' and hit enter). Then, 'cd' to the directory where you puit your saves, and type 'rename *.sav *.0'

    True, but then I cant soft-reset/cheat/... anymore.
    And I use soft-reset alot, so thats not really an option.
