    I've had my Firecard for 9 months now and overall its been pretty good. But, just recently it has been deleting my SAV files for some of my games. For instance I've had Mario Kart the whole time and it's been fine, but I just got guitar hero decades and it won't save anything. I don't know what to do. I've tried changing it from AUTO to every other setting but it doesn't work. Is there any suggestions? I'm seriously thinking of buying an Acekard RPG. Anything would be good.

    These problems are simple.
    dont run the game!
    1: on the top screen of the game with the error find the text called "AUTO([SEL+LEFT+RIGHT])"
    2: Hold select and press left or right!
    3: the text should change
    4: choose one such as flash 4bit or summit,
    5: load the game
    6: if it comes with the same error then scroll over to the next one "EEPROM 4BIT"
    7: try that
    8: keep trying diffrent text until the problem is solved!

    @Firecard_master, he said he tried them all, you're post is useless



    You must use "Eeprom - 4 kbit" with Guitar Hero.


    If it still can't save you can try reformating the card or download an alternate version (if you had the US, try the europe version for example)

    I'm also having a similar issue, however whenever I load a game, it doesn't give me any errors, it also appears to save fine whilst in game, however if I turn the DS off and turn it back on, it fails to load the save file, and if I hook the DS upto my PC it shows all the save files on the DS

    the internal battery that keeps the memory must be dead or almost dead. When this battery is not well working saves are being erasing (like the RAM in your computer when you turn it off)
