Also, I know you never said you have a DSi or DSi XL, but using homebrew for this with a DSi doesn't work because the hardware doesn't recognize swapped carts after booting (but DS/DSL can). I didn't really understand this until I discussed it a few months ago in these forums because the homebrew will still try to work, but it just sends zeroes.

There is also a device or two out there that can download save files from carts without the use of homebrew at all, the ones I know of called the NDS Adaptor and Adaptor Plus, and HKEMS claims that it works with every version of Windows known to support USB since Win98. The Adaptor Plus claims support for special cartridges (Pokemon HG/SS) as well as firmware updates for future special cartridges.
