Well this is a little faq for users with those problem.

First

No$gba components if you don't have this the emu won't work



Could not Read data and set save types

If the emu present this





The only thing you got to do is set a save type (NDS cardtridge backup media)and reset the emu(*) if you find the correct save type go to option (save options)




NOTE: occasionaly games boot up even on the wrong save type.
What happens then though is that when trying to save, you will encounter that same error (Could not read the data. Turn power off and reinsert the game card).
The fix is exactly the same just sellect the correct save type when starting the game next time, exactly as shown.
Unforutnately any game progress up to that point is forfit then if you had chosen the wrong save type and it fails to save with that error.

if you get an error "カード (CARD)" (on Japanese games) change the save type


THIS ========>>> NOGBA
EEPROM - 4Kbit => EEPROM 0.5Kbytes
EEPROM - 64Kbit => EEPROM 8Kbytes
EEPROM - 512Kbit => EEPROM 64Kbytes
FLASH 2048Kbit(2Mbit) => FLASH 256Kbytes
FLASH 4096Kbit(4Mbit) => FLASH 512Kbytes
FRAM 256Kbit => FRAM 32Kbyte

Well this is a little list of the most used save types on NDS roms

1-EEPROM 64KBytes
2-EEPROM 0.5Kbytes
3-FLASH 256KBytes
4-FLASH 512KBytes
5-FRAM 32KBytes

Why do people don't try using the settings option??
use some on sense people (especially noobs), just change you'r save settings, and if the game crushs try to change your settings again.

NOTE: Most games runs well but with few glicths or bugs.

Theres a complete list of NDS games with their save type there.
But note that the site list the save types in bits not bytes, and no$gba uses KBytes, and desmume uses Kbits.

PS: The site is legal, doesnt contain any links to roms, its just a list of known games dumped and save types.

Thanks for posting that. I should be able to use that list to put down the correct save types for all the games listed in the compatibility topic that didn't have anything listed for them as of yet.

remember that word (For Japanese games):

カード (CARD)

if you get an error with it, change the save type.
