    hi can anyone assist my firecard has been great for ages , but recently all files were wiped and the card will not reboot sayin:- Error:FAT Cluster size must > 16 K byte! Please reformat card!

    after reading a couple of posts on your forums i tried this:_ press a,b,x,y,L,R and up, when selecting the firecard. A message appears on the screnn in red lettering saying " USB SAFE BLOCK D12(ADDR5) " anyone got any clues what this means, or if it is solveable???

    Gambia, The
    USB Safe block mode is for firmware upgrading... nothing wrong.

    Hmm,,, Try holding Start+Select on booting your DS ? According to the readme in the newer firmware this opens a format-menu
