    I had an R4DS and now I have an AceKard 2. I put the games and save files in the game folder but the saves are not recognized. I tried renaming them (adidng .nds before .sav) and it just refreezes when trying to load the game.

    Im just guessing but cant you just get the .SAV files of your R4DS and then on your acekard2 where ever you put your roms just put the .SAV file there?

    He already mentioned that the save file was not recognized. >_>

    ...still weird though. The Acekard 2 and R4 are supposed to have the same kind of .sav file...

    It could be that Acekard stores the saves on a folder or another place other than the R4DS does. I switched my microSD card with my R4 saves and games and put it into my CycloDS and everything worked just fine.

    xxx.nds.sav(all lowercase), not .SAV

    I successfully switched all my R4 saves to AK2 just by renaming them.

    I got it working. Case may have been the problem (crazy). Thank you

    I do believe the AceKard2 is case sensitive and all saves must end in .nds.sav, all lowercase.
