Tennokoe Bank – These HuCards, Japan only cards with save memory on them, have 8000 blocks divided into four 2000 block banks.  This only works as a save backup unit, and you cannot save directly to the card, unfortunately.  When you turn the system on with a Tennokoe Bank plugged in, you can copy whole banks back and forth to the system or delete files in a bank, but you cannot copy individual files between banks.  I wish you could do that, but similar to the N64, it is impossible; at least on the N64 you can do it with a Gameshark, but on this system there’s just no way to do it I know of.  So, choose the block each save file goes to wisely.  The Tennokoe Bank saves via an internal, difficult to replace CR2032 battery.  It is under the bumped-up cover on the bottom part of the HuCard.
