    So i got a copy without the xenom intro, it said patched so i went for it. I loaded the game up and it worked fine. i saved it and took a break. I reload my r4 with r4wood and it says menu.dat missing. weird so i put it in my computer. EVERYTHING IS GONE BUT 1 FOLDER. the folder wont be deleted by even file assassin. it says its 3 mb but it says it using all the memory on my sd card.

    In a dos command box, type :
    chkdsk /f X:

    where X: is the letter of your microsd, in your case seems to be L:

    This command should fix the FAT corruption.

    Probably not.

    That's the NDS bricker that's been around for a long while.
    Also, that's from 2009 and for the Japanese version.


    The problem this user has is a corrupt FAT. You can tell by the "DRAGON Q.UES" which matches the 8.3 filename scheme for short filenames.
    "DRAGON Q" is 8 characters. "UES" being the following three letters of "Dragon Quest".

    Buy a new SD card would be the perfect solution.

    The article Pwnage posted said that the rom overwrites the DS's firmware, not just the SD itself. So, if this is true, you'll need a new DS...

    It will format the card properly and then he can redownload anything needed.
