    I started playing pokemon diamond yesterday, and everything was saving fine on my ez-flash V and 1gb kingston japan microSD card. But, after getting to one town where you have to talk to 3 clowns, i was talking to the man who told me to talk with them, and he gave me something, and then i had to go to another room for a sec, when i got back the game was frozen, i had to turn it off. When i booted the game again it said that my data had been lost due to corruption or damage to save. why? i want to prevent it in the future im gonna start today again and i hope it won`t happen again... please help and thank you

    do yourself a favor :

    format card
    8k block size fat 32

    only have pokemon diamond on the card and try again.

    You havent told us if you tried hybrid mode. Nor speed setting
    You havent said you copied the ezsave.lst into the right directory.
    You probably didnt ran defrag on your memory card .

    Needless to say back up your memory card before attempting this ...

    and you need to give feedback to stuff you tried other then it just doesnt work. Write down which settings you used and what you did ...

    Im using auto-detect...

    Pokemon dont like EZ Flash I guess because even after solving the problem with GBA saves Pokemon Leaf Green still corrupts sometimes... >_>

    Ok, I formatted the card and set speed to 5, so far I saved the game 2 times and so far it's still here... I'm very sceptic about that though... :/ especially since I am still having problems with my precious GBA games ... [​IMG]

    Im backuping my saves every time I close the game... Oh by the way, why lower the card's speed? I mean isn't faster = better in any cases...? Well I don't know about it...

    It has todo a bit with timing. Say you use card brand X and on every website you read people use it at speed 2 but your card for some reason cant handle it.

    U can adapt and get it working or keep getting errors....

    Also it has been reported that you would have to edit some roms to get them going with 3 in 1 expansion (check ezflash.sosuke.com ) . And GBA games you would have to send them with the EZ-IV manager otherwise the rom wont save.
