    Actually I've had this problem for quite a while now. So I go into the GameCube's data management menu to delete save files or just see them and I get this: "The device in slot B must be formatted before it can be used. Would you like to format it?" And instead of clicking yes, I shake my fist violently and curse at my system.

    So I click yes; it tries and comes back to me with "The format was successful, but the data is corrupted." I'm sure one of you knows how to fix this. And yes, I have another card which is the exact type as this one.

    Is this an official Nintendo card or 3rd party junk?

    Are you trying to put Japanese and other region saves on the same card? That won't work right.
