    I got a DS FireCard Recently and I downloaded some roms on it. It's worked fine for a few weeks, but today when i tried to download some more it stopped working. The game starts up but it says "Error, data cannot be written" and just stops on the games i just downloaded, and the old games which usually work say "File write Error" when i choose them. I made sure I had the most recent firmware, and i even deleted a few old games to make sure i had space for new save files, but it still doesn't work. I may just be a newb and this is really simple, i can't figure it out! Please Help! [​IMG]

    Have you tried full format? Back up your card first.

    FireCard uses internal memory, and there's a file ... I forget the name ... that you really shouldn't erase ...

    There are special steps on the official forums telling you how to safely format ...

    Write back when you are done. Full format usually take 30mins - 1 hours.
