Title: SMS4 - issues backing up games with titles that contain colons ( ":" )
Post by: sloizos on January 17, 2013, 06:11:12 AM
Hello
This is directed to anyone who can help me out with the following issues.

I just received my SMS4 and tried to backup all my saves and games
but  7 out of the 18 games I have are not backing up the save data(*.sav).
2 of the save data  flashes very quickly  but the file is not created.
and  5 out of the 18 games are not backing up the games (*.nds)
The software version supplied to me is Neo pro manager v.1.30
I solved the problem for 2 of the *.sav that flashes very quickly by downgrading to version 1.10
But I still have problem with 5 games. I find that there is something common to all of them.
four of the games contain colons ":"
and one of them contain a "/"
They are not valid characters in windows XP  in creating files or folders.

Animal Crossing: Wild World Nintendo
BATMAN: THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD WB GAMES, INC.
Zhu Zhu Pets 2: Featuring The Wild Bunch Activision
ATV/Monster Truck DS Destination Software Inc.
Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem D3Publisher

Does any one or Dr.Neo have a solution?
is there  a way to change the title name before it's created to  the destination?

I've seen a youtub video review  that the NDS adaptor plus is able to do that
 thanks,

sloizos

PS..
with all the same results it was tried with:

manager v.1.30
manager v.1.10
manager v.1.09
 and on  4 different computers all with XP pro SP3
all plugged directly to motherboard USB's
tried cleaning carts contacts with pcb cleaner also alcohol with pcb brush
