    Is there a way I could restore an Animal Crossing: Wild World ROM onto a random NDS cartridge?
    I figure I could get the Moving Van on Animal Crossing: City Folk to work this way.

    Nope. Cartridges use Read Only Memory, so you can't overwrite it.

    Nope, only option is to buy AC:WW and transfer your SAV file to it.

    Thanks for the responses, I'm going to borrow my buddy's game.

    Oh one more question.
    Let's say I restore a 256KB save instead of a 512KB save, would it still be able to load the save and run properly?

    I don't think so. Only option you have is to convert your Gamesave with a gamesave conerter:

    shunyweb.info is one of those.

    The retail cart utilizes a 256KB SAV slot. Most utilities, like those by Rudolph, will restore the 512KB SAV file used by most game cards with no problem.
