    What did you choose for ROM save type?

    If you have set the save type as above when creating the CIA I suspect the rom you are using to build your CIA might have been patched to save on some older flash cards, you need to use a clean untouched rom if so.

    Hi, I feel like I followed the steps exactly, even doing a video reference as well and I’m still having trouble getting it to work where I can load/inject saves from my cartridges onto the 3DS VC of the Game Boy Advance Pokémon Games. When I get to the part where it says to inject, it says it failed, and yes I made sure to start the game first. I even played one of the games to the point of getting the Pokédex and saved it in game and then closed it out before continuing the process and it still didn’t work. I am able to dump the save oddly enough, though I haven’t tried to use it back on an emulator or cartridge to see if it would work. I noticed that when I try to use Checkpoint that none of the GBA VC games are showing up like the other games do. Not sure if that makes a difference, but there it is.

    Are the saves you are trying to inject 128k or 64k?

    They are 128. But it’s also still irking me why I can’t see the games themselves in checkpoint or another save manager.

    Checkpoint and other saves managers do not support GBA inject saves. GBA games are not emulated like other VC games. The 3DS essentially has GBA hardware built in, so the save is elsewhere.

    See 3DS GBA Save Backup and Restore with GodMode9 for info on how these are backed up.

    I looked at the guide already and followed everything step by step to my knowledge. I can get the original saves to restore if I dump them it’s just the saves from other sources I can’t get to work.

    What saves as an example? you can't restore gameshark snapshots for example, you'd need to convert it to a normal save.

    as far as I know they are normal saves, from a cartridge in fact.
