    "Data could not be accessed. Please turn the power off, then remove and reinsert the game card"

    I get this message with a couple of games. So now what???
    I looked for the latest R4ds kernel and still the same problem. But I also have a TT-card and it works with all games.

    The only thing you can do, is wait for the R4 team to release a new kernal that fixes the problem.
    What game do you get the error message from? Solitaire?

    Do what Tanas suggested, then if that doesn't fix it try reformatting the memory card.

    Clean all the pins on the card with a cotton swap and ethanol. That message can even show up on real games if your DS is dirty. (Does your DS have trouble recognising the R4 sometimes?)

    He means the ds_menu.sys corrupted. updating the firmware withour deleting ds_menu.sys might cause some problems, or so they say. Try to delete the ds_menu.sys and re-install the firmware

    It is, but Prof. Layton actually works perfectly in R4 while this guy got a problem with it.

    THX to all of you for caring and helping out. But after I formatted the card for the second time and reinstalling it, it works just fine.

    (and offtopic: Prof Layton is a great game !!! )
