Retrode can't deal with GBA saves as for now, ene though it does it with GB and GBC saves.

If you wanna back up and restore GBA saves your best bet is to get a DS or DS Lite (the ones with GBA slots), a cheap slot-1 flashcard like the R4 and use the homebrew called "GBA Save Tool" to do the dirty work. Works as a charm.

This config entry does exactly what it says: makes cartridge saves ready-only or not. It's kinda self explanatory.

If it's set to 1, Retrode will only be able to read saves from carts do PC. They're read-only.

If it's set to 0, Retrode will not only be able to read from but also write on the save area of the plugged cartridge.

If you just wanna back up your saves, set it to 1 so you don't erase or overwrite the saves ok the cart itself by mistake. If you wanna restore saves from the PC back to the carts, it must be set to 0.

Ok, now I found it suddenly worked on FFII. I have no idea what I did different that made it work but here was the last thing I had tried:

[saveReadonly] 0    ; write protect save? 0=no, 1=yes

I changed the entry above to 0, then deleted the existing srm on cart, copied the desired srm to the cart, then reverted the setting above to 1, saved config, unplugged, and it was working.

Any idea what was going on just for documentation's sake? lol

I no longer seem to be able to write srm's over the previous ones on cart ever since my last update.

I used to just plug it in, erase the srm on cart and then drag and drop the new one (same name, same size) into the retrode folder and after unplugging and trying on an actual snes the change would work. Now instead it insists on keeping the existing file (using Windows 7 by the way).

This essentially renders my retrode to a one way transfer device which is a real bummer. :/

I noticed there's a line in the config for:

[saveReadonly] 1    ; write protect save? 0=no, 1=yes

I tried changing that to 0 but it made no difference.

I've tried some big name titles such as the US Final Fantasy II etc, and still the same result. I can copy files over to the PC but not back to the cart.

I don't use RetroPie, but the ROMs that are dumped are bog-standard, I always verify against the hashes from DAT-o-MATIC, and they play fine in my standalone mupen64plus and Retroarch installs, which would be the options RetroPi could build on for emulating N64.

If RetroPie didn't work with them, it'd not only be something people would be raging about en masse, it'd mean that they had to actively work to break something.

It was my understand GBA has no internal definite information on save data.
Emulators support it by reading the entire ROM to guess what save format the game uses.
However, at least one game is known to deliberately throw emulators red herrings as a form of copy-protection.

If you can't get the Retrode to read the cart, then I would suggest using something else to dump it.  Cheapest alternative would be a Gameshark with working parallel port.

If it isn't on an original Nintendo PCB, then it is a repro cart.
