I'm guessing this is another issue with selecting the right savetype.

Here's the savefile it created for what it is worth.

Loading the savefile into another emulator reveals it's at least recognized, but, a lot of the settings aren't what I set, and all of my character data is gone.

The savefile made in melonDS is 8KB, while the Medusa savefile I made was 64KB.

medusa resizes its savefile as needed instead of trying to guess the size and enforcing it. The issue of that method is that there are games that try to read/write out of bounds as an anti-piracy measure.

melonDS on the other hand, runs into this kind of issues. I guess I'll just use a database. The heuristics are a mess already.
