    Savegame Manger DS:

    I can't get this to work for any form of savefile from any game.
    I followed the instructions properly.
    Whenever I try to backup a savefile (or restore, it doesn't matter what I pick), the directories on where to save/restore from don't show on the DS. If I press L+R to try to write a new file, it just tells me the FTP doesn't have proper writing access even though it does.

    The settings on the program (and the port-forwarding and other router-related things for SGM DS itself) are fine.

    I've tried:
    - connecting my computer directly to the modem instead of using the same Wi-Fi connection as the DS.
    - going from an Open connection to WEP protected.
    - using two different flash carts (with the app actually crashing on one)
    - using two different DS models (Phat and Lite)

    I don't know why it isn't working. Nothing seems to get it working. I can see on SmallFTPd that something is trying to connect (via PASV or something), so it's getting accessed... partially.

    I don't have a Slot 2 device so unfortunately I can't take the easy way out for this.

    are you using version 3 or the 2.4?
    if you're on 3 try downgrading, I couldnt even get 3 to work on my brand new r4igolds3ds but 2.4 works without a hitch.
