    Hi all, lately i have been using DSOrganize alot and this morning there seems to be prob with my microSD card(SanDisk Ultra II 1GB).
    It wont let me copy/paste files as if my microSD is protected however i am able to files but not able to copy/paste as mentioned before.

    Games and homebrew and all the files play/work fine on my R4 DS and it seems to be an issue on the pc end. BTW microSD reader i am using is the one that came with the first batch of R4DS.

    Do you guys think i should format my card and not use DSOrganize again?

    Thanks

    the only prob with formatting it now is that i have files on it which unfortunately i never backed-up on my drive. [​IMG] is there a way of copying files or am i doomed?

    -Edit

    My R4ds playing those exact files w/o any prob but it's the microSD card which seems to be corrupted.

    had the same problem - glad i was running a test first with an old transflah-card that came with my motorola
    it's definitely DSOrganize that f***s things up - its not worth it anyway...

    That's weird, I use DSO all the time (mostly the calender/day planner feature admittedly but use everything else as well) and have never had a problem. What features did you use or did you just load it and then it corrupted the card?

    i used an all-in-one installation-package (newest firmware, moonshell and DSO) that someone made for 1.6b - i just played around with it a little bit (that _horrible_ drawing feature for example)... then wanted to copy/ delete something from the pc but gave me some error-message. wasnt able to format it as well...

    edit:
    since this topic is about homebrew corrupting memorycards - id like to install ScummVM DS but on ScummVM DS@drunkencoders.com is no mention of it running on the R4DS _but_ that theres the possibility of card-corruption with some combinations...
    so here's my question: anyone of you installed it with success and without any corruption?
    thx

    Dsorganize screwed up my microSd card twice. i posted this a while ago..

    The first time windows would not even let me format the card. It was only fixed when i restarted the PC with the card in the card reader ( windows fixed the corrupted card when it was booting up).
    The second time it just corrupted the DS_menu folder ( so tthe R4 would not work). I was able to extract the save files before re-fomatting the card. I could not just overwrite the ds_menu file as it would not let me ( so had to reformat the card)

    DSorganise will not be going near my R4 again.

    All right! A DSO Screwed My MicroSD Chip Thread!

    Sorfar, it killed both of mines sever times and NOW, they are both completely unrecoverable.

    Even went as far as to download a live-cd to check if Linux could read it.

    I've had the same problem, but unlike you I never managed to fix it.
    I must have downloaded a half a dozen applications(included swissknife) but none of them would read my card.
    When I read your post I was shoked at the simplicity of the solution and tried it right away...but still didn't work(by rebooting).
    Maybe it's because I'm using XP ?
    Are you using a different version of windows or is my SD card screwed beyond any possible recover ?

    Works great for me, but then again. I am using M3 Simply. Not R4

    maybe its fat/blocksize-related - surely not R4-related (as opposed to M3Simply) as they are identical...
    (the card i had the problems with was formated by my mobile - i guess fat16)
    not that it really interests me - at least not as long as DSO is concerned it's another story with stuff like ScummVM DS though (hint, hint [​IMG] - nobody got some info on that?)

    wow.. no wonder last time my microSD was broken..
    and i thought it was something else..

    but yeah i kept on trying because i didnt want to lose the save files of 10 games, i restarted my xp and the pc finally recognizes it.. and i quickly copy the save files over then formatted it

    had no idea it was DSO.
    and i did played with the rename, delete file, copy. prob that.
