    Hello, I was following a tutorial for Windows on youtube for backing up .sav and .nds files using smallftp and NDS_Backup_Tool_Wifi, I reached the part where it says "Please pull out a present card from Slot-1 and set a target card", I do so, placing in Kirby Super Star Ultra, and when I press (A) : OK, it says "The card of Slot-1 cannot be recognized. Please pull out once, and set it again".

    I've tried it with four different DS games, and it always says the same thing. Please help.

    Are you using a DSi?

    Unfortunately no backup tool I've found works with a DSi yet, the newest versions of some appear to work, but the backup they create is usually 8KB of empty data, totally useless.

    We'll have to wait until some developer with a DSi updates one of the tools.

    If I were to use the program with an Acekard 2i on a DSL, would it work? Would the .sav be playable on a DSi?

    I used Savsend to successfully back up my Diamond's save file, but I can never back up my Japanese SoulSilver's save. It always says that it sent the file successfully but I never get the download dialog on my browser. Can anyone help me?

    I'm using a DS Phat and an Acekard 2i, BTW.

    Other people are reporting a newer version of savsend is needed for HG/SS, so we all have to wait.
