Delete the existing SAV file and let it create a new one?

never seen that before, i`d just get a different game to make sure it hasn`t corrupted the ds and try a different version of the game

you might be out of room if the card is full

each game save takes up 512k(I think)

you have to leave like 20-30mb of space on the card after your games are on to have the relevant space required for game save(.SAV) file - of each game.

Delete a game and robert's your mother's brother.

Or it is one of the few that aren't compatible with the R4, they are old cards now.

how would i fnd this out, or is it just a case of if this happens its likely to be non compatible


gonna load it onto the dstt see if its the same

have you unzipped the game properly? The odd time I've added a file that isn't completely extracted - and it's failed

- and you sometimes have to add patches which ppl often include inside the game folder once extracted.

If it still does it on the TT then the chances are it's a bad image file and you'll need to download it again. :)

i think you should put the latest firmware on your sd micro card copy all data from the card install latest firmware to micro card then add the games and save files back to the card this should work fine version 1.18 looks the most upto date go to there web site to download it [url]www.r4ds.com[/url]

this is what to do
After downloading and decompressing the new updated files, there will be one shell folder and two files _DS_MENU.DAT、 _DS_MSHL.NDS.Copy these files to the root directory of TF card to replace the former files
banned#22
folder ..
folder _systemdash_
folder moonshl

file DS_MENU.DAT

Run Y's (Yasu) menu, it uses the DSTT core files so makes compatabilty 100%.

Can only be done on real R4's (non-sdhc) afaik.

New buyers take note, don't buy R4, it's good but now it's not updated anymore future games will pose more and more problems, plus it can't take SDHC >2GB big mem cards.

blimey I'm on version 1.07 should of thought of that, cheers.

R4 havent updated the firmware since April, and several newer software titles dont work .The ttds has been geting regular and up to date firmwares which aim to increase compatability with certain software titles. so at around 10-12 quid from dealextreme.com the ttds is a little charm
