Uh, probably a wordy title. So I bought a used copy of Gold today, the game works fine and all it just won't keep a save file. I mean the first time I saved it worked, but then after I saved a second time shut it off and transfered the cart to my GBA with the fresh new batteries to play it the save was gone. UGH. So now I need to replace the internal battery. And you know what's worse it really makes me scared for my Silver and Yellow carts. The Red I don't care so much about since I was only using it to speed train some of the pokemon from Yellow so they'd level up faster, but damn. How do I back up all of my saves so that if the batteries die I can at least still keep the info, I worked hard for my Pokemon training and I don't want to have to start all over again, even if I do enjoy the games enough not to let it get me down too badly. Basically what do I need to backup the game data currently in the carts to my computer and then back up that data on an external memroy stick or something so if anything ever went south as it were I would still have my hard earned work? Losing game data is a fact of life, but I don't have to lose it completely right?
