    So I thought I would treat myself and upgrade my 1GB Sandisk to a 2GB Kingston (Japan), as I heard they were the best cards out at the moment. NDS games run much better now, which is to be expected. However, when I go to run a GBA game, the save loads, but the game stays on 00000KB loaded [​IMG]

    The microSD card still has the factory FAT format, which I figure should not be a problem. Anyone have any ideas?

    Format it to Fat32 and re-write the games. Make sure it isn't patched or something.

    Does it have to be formatted in FAT32? I'd prefer to keep the factory format, as I have read that formatting a card with a different filesystem / cluster size degrades the card's performance.

    Also, the I put the games on via drag and drop, so no problems there.

    Well, I bit the bullet, formatted the card as FAT32, and everything works again. Funny thing is I remember reading that the M3 has problems running GBA games on FAT formatted cards, but I guess I needed to read your post to jog my memory [​IMG]

    Thanks for the reply.
