    This isn't a new problem for me. Using the Sakura 3-in-1 loader, often times after hours of working fine, Sakura crashes during the disk checking sequence. The message given is something like " *.exe could not be found. Operation terminated." Well not literally a .exe file, but it's something along those lines.

    This only occurs when I'm running the Sakura firmware rather than the ItouchDS or M3 DS Real loaders. After the message appears all that can be done is to turn off the DS. Trying to load Sakura up again after any attempt at an immediate fix, (as in not reformatting the card) gives you the same message, but loading any of the other 2 firmwares works fine.

    When this first happened to me, I thought it was a problem with my EZ-Flash 3-in-1 expansion pack, as every time it occurred, all of the temporary flash memory on the gba cart was erased, and errors would proceed. I tried leaving it out of my DS for a while, and it seemed that that was the fix to my issues. However just today, I discovered that Sakura crashed again without the help of a gba expansion.

    Basically, I'm not sure why this occurs. The upper screen with all of the processes detailed tells you to check the logbuf.txt file but all I found was

    It's a pretty annoying issue in that I have to back up my files every time it occurs, reformat and reload all my files, or use the other two firmwares. It's not like my M3 doesn't work at all, but I'd like to know if anyone knows a solution to this.

    Is this normal as Sakura's a hacked loader? Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know how to get around this?

    Nope, it's not normal, even for the hacked version, because I'm using it from the day one, and never had this happened to me (I use it on a daily basis)..
    YOu should format your microSD, and copy all the stuff back, and keep an eye when will this happen again, something is corrupting your microSD, could be some homebrew or bad ROM....But this happens because part of your cart becomes corrupted!!

    No problems here, been running Triple Boot since virtually day one of its 'release'. I'm not confident unchecking the diskchk is the wise thing to do. Best advice would be to correct the problem it is locating.

    hm, how much free space do you have on your microSD?
    error tells me m3sakura thinks you have no space left.

    Sorry about the font size. I though size 7 would mean it would look smaller than usual.

    Well I'm pretty sure it's not about a bad rom file because it usually occurs during a game I've played for a while and had no errors with. For example, I remember it happening while I was playing Pokemon Fire Red with my EZ-Flash 3 in 1. After I reformatted and reloaded everything, I played the same romfile and save, and no errors in the same place occurred.

    It seems to be a randomly occurring error. Well, at least random as in there's not much I can do to watch out for it.

    Also, I usually have 20 to 50 mb's of space remaining.
