    So I used to use YSmenu and Pokemon Platinum.
    So I converted my .sav into a 1MB save just in case.
    Then I switched to my Acekard 2i.
    Now it was working perfectly fine until Akaio 1.7 in which my 1MB save isn't accepted.
    Any ideas?

    Is the extension .sav, or .SAV? If it is .SAV, try making it lowercase.

    Oh, and Pokemon Platinum uses 512KB saves. The conversion to 1MB was not needed (but shouldn't hurt)

    I know it uses 512 KB, I converted it because someone told me I had to.
    Now I don't know how to convert it back.
    And yes, it's .sav

    have you changed the setting in AKAIO to 1MB?

    Otherwise you'll have to get a hex editor and try splitting the file.

    I dunno if it's the same for you as what happened to me, but when I switched to AKAIO on my Acekard, the save files changed from .ndssav to .sav, or something like that.

    I'd recommend starting up a new game and saving and checking to see if the new save file extension is different than your old ones. If it is, just change the extension at the end and it should work just fine.

    I've tried:
    .nds.sav, .sav, .SAV

    I think you may be able to use Pokesav to bring it down to size. On the left side there is an option to save it as a 256KB or 512KB file. Maybe that will help. Of course remember to backup your file before trying this.

    Oh crap.
    How did I forget about beloved Pokesav?
    If this works, I love you.
