    Hi guys

    A friend of mine was given a copy of Final Fantasy 6 on Gameboy Advance. The packaging is quite blatantly fake, the cartridge itself is either legit or a highly convincing replica. Problem is with the save system. It says that the files are all corrupted, gives me the option to erase them, so I do, and the empty file immediately corrupts, essentially making saving impossible. Is there anything that can be done to repair it, or should we just give up and bin it?

    The games are supposed to use SRAM, I do not know if that means actual SRAM or the non battery backed feRAM. If it is a battery you might wish to try changing it.

    If you can get some scans/photos up of the cart (and PCB if you can) it might be able to settle the fake/real debate as well.
