    Hi,

    I upgaded my ds lite to the latest r4 English firmware (tried 1.12 and then 1.11). Castlevania POR is not recognized in the game list (it is shown as 'untitled'). When I try to boot it, all I get are white screens. I am pretty sure it worked in an earlier firmware version.

    Am I doing something wrong (do I have to disable the cheats or something, and if so, how do I do that?), or is this title not working with the latest firmware??

    Thanks

    Dude

    Im guessing your rom is corrupted. The first thing to try is download another castlevania rom from a diffrent source and then try that one. It should work on the r4 btw.

    What micro SD card are you using, certain cheaper ones dont work well with the PoR.

    Thanks for your replies. I'm using a Kingston 1GB microsd card (Japan). The rom has been verified using CntrlMamePro (using the Pocketheaven dat).

    I just downgraded to firmware version 1.08 and it works perfectly.. When I upgrade to 1.11 or 1.12, it doesn't work at all (formatted card before installing new firmware). Maybe my micro sd card is just screwed up or something...

    dude

    EDIT: After reformatting and installing firmware 1.12 yet again, it's now working fine... Either my card or reader must be crapping out...

    THANKS
