    It's been driving me crazy that I can't save a couple of games; the new Coraline game and Sonic Chronicles : The Dark Brotherhood. When I want to save it a message pops up and says; "The save data could not be accessed. Please turn the power off and reinsert the DS card."

    I've installed the latest update and the cheats but to no avail..

    I dunno if I installed the update correctly. I'm on a Mac so when I extract the firmware, I just drag and drop it into the SD folder. I have no idea where the root of the SD card is, so can anyone help me? Please?

    Thank you!

    I'm no guru, but saw you have no replies

    When you are moving the edge.dat etc over to the memory card, the root is just the first space you see.
    (There should be no folder to start with)

    If your other games save ok, maybe you have a problem with these two roms.
    I don't know about Coraline, but there is no problem playing the Sonic game on Edge
    I would look for other roms of these games.

    If that doesn't work, there is a possibility that your memory card is corrupted, in which case you'll have to reformat it and reload the Edge OS and your games.

    Hope that helps

    Is your version of the firmware up to date?

    Make sure you have enough space on the card to make the saves. Each save file is 512kb, if you have less than that then you'll get that error message.
