    Default Can you move data from one N64 controller pak to another?

    Like with PlayStation memory cards? As far as I can tell, you can't, but I sure as hell wish I could.

    I think to do it you would need a DexDrive, which would allow you to copy your file from your memory card to the PC, and then back down to another memory pack.

    Ah, yeah, that would be possible. I don't have a DexDrive, though, so I wish it was a feature that Nintendo actually built in.

    Try checking ebay i picked up a brand new boxed dex drive for $12.

    I have all my valuable saves like, rakuga kids, goemon mononoke sugoroku & wonder project J2 backed up safe on my pc.

    It's really worth getting its a great tool.

    I've seen instructions for making homebrew PSX "DexDrives" from PC floppy cables; perhaps someone has modified them for use with N64 cards?

    Is it possible to use a Dex drive to back up your saves directly from a Gamepak that doesn't have controller pak functionality?

    No, but you can use a Gameshark Pro to copy the game's internal save (on most games, anyway) to the controller pak, then copy that with the DexDrive.
