    Hmm. Well here's my setup:
    US DSi
    Acekard 2i with AKAIO PROPER 1.4.1 repack.
    Patriot 8GB MicroSD HC formatted with Panasonic formatter.

    I've tried to play both:
    Black Sigil and Dragon Quest IV.

    Problem:
    After some time (I was a good 5-8 hours into Black Sigil and 5 hours into DQIV), I shut my DSi off one night, and turn it on the next day to find that my save file has disappeared! Actually I'm not sure if they got deleted + recreated, or simply wiped - but either way when I start the game, my save file seems to have been deleted. =(

    Now I've had this happen to me on two games, and it's really turning me off from playing my DSi at all, since I just lost a good 10-15 hours of gameplay. =/

    Anyone have an idea of why this is happening and/or how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance! I'm hoping someone can help me out, or I'll have to purchase another card because I really don't want this to happen again - especially not when I'm playing RPG's.

    I've never experienced that before. All my savegames are intact after months of play. Only thing I can think of is a corrupt or defective microSD. Try another one?

    Hm...I think I may have actually run into that problem earlier too. I don't know what it is either...but at least I only lost about an hour or so of gameplay, so it's no big deal. I turned the DS off relatively late at night, but I doubt that had anything to do with it.

    So yeah, sorry, I don't really know what's wrong.

    Ack. That use to happen to me also - but I just kinda shook it off. It was like an hour or something - I can redo thatt. But losing an entire save file hurts >.

    Did you try finding the sav file by booting up the sd card in your pc? When I set up my akAIO, both Mario Kart and Bleach games created new .sav files. It turns out akAIO didn't recognize the file and simply made a new one. I simply renamed the previous .sav file and everything was good.
