    I have an M3 real and I use the Sakura modded english firmware. Everytime I turn it on text on the screen reads,

    "can not handle disk format

    Disk size is too large, or
    cluster size is too small.

    recovery method:
    Try to reformat the card
    with a bigger cluster size

    Application terminated."

    I have no idea what the cluster size is. I want to reformat it, but afterwards i want to put the same files on it, will it do the same thing? The last thing I used was ds organize and I was renaming things and moving files. Any help on how to fix this?

    You should probably Back your files up, then Reformat the card, then only restore the system file, then restore everything else, if you have a fast card and USB reader/slot it probably shouldn't take much more than twenty to thirty minutes.

    DS organize is known to cause some of these cluster problems.

    I had the SAME problem with my REAL and Sakura firmware. Here's what you do:
    1: Backup ALL your files on your hard drive.
    2: Format your microsd to Fat32. You could do Fat16, but I've had more success with Fat32.
    3: Copy all your files back on your microsd. Everything should work just like normal! [​IMG]
