I'm new at this, but I have tried the search function and the wiki, I may have missed something there is a lot of information available here. I have an acekard2 with akaio the lastest firmware installed. Games do run, but .sav doesn't seem to work. I have tried switching from .sav to .nds.sav, didn't work. I went back to .sav didn't work either. I've tried all the different save slots, just in case, and that didn't work. File size as well. Defaults, no go. I saw an old post about holding down the A button when loading, that didn't work. I've reformatted, downloaded, and reinstalled everything on the card. I may be ignorant here, but shouldn't it work? If I highlight and select (A button) either a .sav or a .nds.sav I get "back up save?" So I tried backing up the save, it didn't work. I select the rom, and things start over from the beginning, with no save. Now, I've never used anything like this before, but shouldn't a .sav just pick-up where I left off in the game? What I'm getting is the game starting over from the beginning again, and again. I've tried a few different games, and it's all the same. Do I have to do something "extra" to make things save?
