    I'm curious if anyone else has tried to use savsender with the retail cart of Zelda. It seems to be an unsupported save type, but I'm not sure. Are there any other programs that can backup/restore saves on a retail cart?

    I only use the NDS Backup Wifi 3.1. It's a slot-1 FTP backup program. It's mainly for the ROM, but you can get the savs as well.

    Could you point me in the right direction? I can't seem to locate it.

    Nevermind, I found it, along with 3in1 backup, and slot-2 backup. The 3in1 tool worked wonders.

    Can anyone tell me if this works with Zelda by sending a .sav file to the original cart? It worked for Metroid.

    That isn't an action to backup a save file. That is an action to convert a save file from one format to another.

    Backing up a save file means to create a copy of it for safekeeping, which would be to use savreceiver and savsender to copy a save film from the Legend of Zelda - The Phantom Hourglass cartridge to the personal computer. Unfortunately, Zelda save files taken in this manner are cleared when one plays Zelda on their M3 Sakura.
