    Hello,

    I am using my GW since 3 years and never got any kind of problem.
    Yesterday, I launched Zelda MM rom from the GW menu, started the game and got this message:
    "Save is corrupted. Erasing save..."

    Now my Zelda MM save is gone! I have to start over and I was at the last temple :(

    Is a problem with my rom? or my GW card?

    Nothing to do with the rom.

    It's probably the sdcard.

    Never happened to me, I even transferred the saves from one console to other and it still worked, none of them corrupted so far. Probably the reason for game save corruption could be console sd card or game rom itself (for eg. replaced the game rom from one source to other)

    Also if you try to modify the game rom header (for online play, etc), the game save will become void and will be reported corrupted by the game.

    EDIT: Quoted by mistake, fixed.

    Believe I had something similar happen way back when the game closed wrong, as it creates the save when closing the application IIRC.

    Wrong. Roms can be copied over and have part of the data corrupted in the process. Which results in crashes and loss of data
