I'm using the Wifi NDS Backup Tool and SmallFTPd but it's really slow. SmallFTPd is telling me that I'm only getting between 1 and 2 kB/s. At this rate, it would take about 12 hours to backup a 64MB game. I looked back at the tutorial I was following it said the average speed was 1MB/s. That should be about 17kB/s but I'm only getting ~1.5kB/s. Is there something that I can do to speed this up? I already checked my firewall and SmallFTPd is allowed through.

This is the tut I was using if it makes any difference: http://lifehacker.com/5588151/hack-your-nintendo-ds-for-easy-backups-and-single+cartridge+playback

Thanks in advance.

How are you even getting NDS Backup Tool to work? I couldn't, and people told me to use Wooddumper, and that doesn't work either, I get errors when pressing (A) after it tells me to switch carts, on a DS Phat.

From I understand, it only works on DS Lites.

Also, I figured it out. For anyone who is curious, you have to go to "Turn Windows Feature on and off" and then turn on FTP sharing.

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way
