Q:First, thank you. I was able to upgrade my wood R4i gold 3DS card with the 'R4iGold3DS_V144_Patch_NDSi.nds' patch on an old DS I had. Now I can boot up the R4 in my DSI XL and can run all my games. The only problem I still have and I hope there is a simple solution for is, that all of the SAV files I had from using my old R4-SDHC 3DS card are NOT recognized by the R4 wood card and I have to start a new SAV file loosing all my progress. Is there a way to convert my SAV files to a wood format?Thanks for your helpful assistance.

A: Try to rename your saved file ".sav" to ".nds.sav".... it will work properly....
