    Hey all.

    So I keep getting that message when trying to load a game.

    I have an EZ Flash IV cartridge using a 4 GB micro SD card.

    I have the SD card formatted to FAT with I think 64 kb segments.

    I'm using EZ 4 Client 1.03 to transfer files on the card.

    I have my GBA flashed with some [SD] 1.770 file that was given on this site which is really quite nice looking.

    My cartridge works just fine if I have just have a few games on it.

    If I go even a little crazy though, and try to put like 20 games on this, I continue to get that error.

    I trim all of the roms with NDSTokyoTrim3.

    I'm using Windows 7.

    Can someone give me a clue on what I'm doing wrong here?

    I think I have followed all of the steps but it's not working for some reason.

    Again, the cartridge is great if I have only a few things on it. Anything more and I'm getting constant errors.

    Cheers.

    It seems like the most I can have is 24 games on the card, along with the saver folder.

    If I try to add one more game after this, it becomes a file format error.

    I've tried many different ways and many different games.

    Is there not a way someone can think of on why this happens?

    I still have like 3.75 gigs left unused on my cartridge.

    Thanks ahead.

    It turns out that my 4gb card worked like hot garbage on this device.

    I got a 2gb one today and everything works perfectly now.
