    Yeah when I tried to get the GBA roms to run on the CycloDS with the EZ 3-in-1 Expansion pak, I came across this 'demon' that almost FILLED my 4GB HCSD card it only had like 50 MB's of free space left. Lucky for me I format the card to wipe out that shit out. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The GBA number and name is:
    2108 - MegaMan Zero 4 (EU).gba

    I don't know if this is the official GBA rom but if it is then I will stay far away from it. I don't even think its worth playing if its going to fill your HCSD card with garbage you can't delete unless you format it all over again. Luckily I did save the files so my CycloDS can work like new but...DAMN I'm only trying to get my CycloDS to work on the GBA rom games.

    I will like to point this out in case some ever download that rom...

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    I have no idea whether it was anything I downloaded, but I've had a similar experience before. I replaced the same stuff back on my card after formatting, and it was fine again. Nothing happened after that, so I'm not sure it would've been something I downloaded.
    I'm just saying something else could have caused the problem.

    I don't know maybe you're right. It was just creepy to see all those weird files filling up the card, now it just act like its not there. Most of have been those bad dumps.

    I think file system corruption. Something was wrong with the FAT of the card anyway.

    Yeah, just sounds like file system corruption. Everybody stop flipping out, and maybe try using chkdsk once in a while. BTW: "GBA rom virus" is the funniest thing I've heard all week.
