    i recently bought an acekart 2.1 and its worked fine until i played yu gi oh 2010 and gta ctw. it only happens to these 2 roms. lets say i play gta for 4 hours, save and quit. if i come back and play gta a week later my game is fine. but if i say, go play any other rom and think hey i wanna play gta, i turn off whatever im playin to switch. when i reboot gta, my sav is still there but when i boot the rom it starts a new game on it own and overwrites my old save!!! this also happens with yu gi oh 2010, but all my other roms r fine. whats the deal here???

    ...ive tried enabling the backup codes but those dont fix anything...

    Have you tried formatting your micro sd, if you do make sure to make a backup of all the files on the micro sd.

    I had the same problem on my AK2i with Pokemon HG/SS, I formatted the card and now it's fine.

    i used a panasonic formatter to format my card when i first got the acekard. i guess i can try reformatting though no point in backing up since my saves for the last week are already gone [​IMG]

    Yeah I had to format twice, I used windows to format though, I don't like panasonic formatter.

    I've had an issue where I would end up with a .sav and a .SAV...different save files.
    And since this is unnatural for Windows systems, attempting to delete one often deleted the other (Windows gets mixed up)... so if this is happening to you, rename them 1.sav and 2.SAV, then delete the one you don't need, before renaming it to the correct extension.

    Hope you understand this, if this is your problem.

    It's good, it's obviously not an older model or a fake.

    I was paranoid about mine being fake too. I ordered mine form 1 of the recommended sites from AK so it's real. Good luck on your games, I hope it all works out for you now.
