    Hello, I've got a bit of a silly question (normally I just google this kind of stuff), I'm not certain if this would be the correct section. I have been playing pokemon white 2 on my DS using my supercard DSTWO, and would like to be able to transfer my .sav file onto the actual card when I pick it up in the morning. I've transferred save files from DS/GBA games to my computer, but have never attempted to put a save back onto an actual DS cartridge. Would a tool such as NDS Backup Tool be what I am looking for? I could figure it out from there if that's the case, but I'd like to be pointed in the right direction if that is possible.

    Thank you guys ahead of time, gbatemp has helped me quite immensely in the past because of very easy to follow guides, and I've never had to actually post before. /suckup :)

    I'm actually trying to figure this out myself. I don't know about Black and White 2, but it seems that Black and White work nicely with Savegame Manager, and I'm assuming the newer versions would work nicely as well. Admittedly, I haven't picked up White 2 yet, and have been playing a ROM, but I've decided that I'd like to buy the game. I'm just not sure if I should keep playing my save and expect to be able to transfer it, or if I should stop now and just wait until I receive my actual game to play. I'd love to know if this method works for you!

    EDIT: Okay, it works! Just got my copy of White 2 today and transferred my save file over with no issues. Just use Savegame Manager (follow the instructions) with a DS Phat or DS Lite and you'll be good to go. Unfortunately it won't work with a DSi or 3DS, because Nintendo made it so that those systems go back to the system menu whenever you remove a cartridge.
