    Could be several reasons, is your rom hack setup to correctly use 128k saves on the 3DS? if you have used this save on an emulator on the PC was it set to save 128k saves and not 64k?

    You also might have actually corrupted the save when editing it, did you test on an emulator first?

    Sorry the necroposting, but i had a huge trouble.
    I had 2 pokemon games in my console: Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Emerald. Who i inyect the Emerald save without that save affects my Ruby save?
    I try to inyect the save between the Godmode9 method but when i start the Ruby game i got "save deleted" error and when i inyect the Ruby save to fix that, the Emerald save screw complete.

    Keep in mind you can only backup the save of the last GBA game you played, so launch the GBA game you wish to backup, for example Emerald and save it. You can then backup / restore that save.

    If you wish to then do the same for Ruby launch Ruby and save the game, you can then backup / restore that save instead and it will not affect the Emerald save.

    Ensure you are using 128k saves and GBA VC Pokemon games which have been setup for 128k saves.

    hi I try to inject my mgba .sav file to my 3ds using godmode 9 and it says injection failed.
    I looked at my .sav file properties and it shows the size is 128kb but the size on disk is 132kb
    Is that why I can't inject my sav file to my 3ds? and if it does how to rectify this problem

    How would you load the rom onto an emulator to use the save? Could I just get a rom and rename it to the title ID?

    Generally you name the save the same as the rom, ensure they are in the same folder and the emulator will load the save
