After following the instructions that some people kindly suggested I do (thread - http://tinyurl.com/cequ3hk ), I'm really baffled about a similar issue. In fact, the exact opposite had just occurred, my hard drive runs the emulator perfectly (so far) yet the SDHC refuses to locate the ROM directory and also refuses to create save states when both directories are clearly configured properly. I haven't changed it ever since I started using Snes9xGx back in early 2010. At first I thought the Snes9xGx forwarder I installed six months was the culprit. So, I decided to install one of mastershoes' wad last night to see if it was the older forwarder's fault. While it installed without a hitch and loads the emulator just fine, it was all in vain; the emulator still refuses to identify the ROM directory. Here's the part that confuses me the most; so I load up the emulator, and naturally, it found the USB device first, so I change both save/load devices to "SD". I go back to ROM folder and everything looks the way it should, so I go ahead and load a game. The game runs fine, but when I decide to make a save state, I get the error "save failed" and then I decide to swap games. That's when it refuses to load the folder, heck, when I go to "up one level" and then to the "SD:\snes9xgx" folder on the SDHC card, it doesn't open. It goes through an infinite loop making the SDHC completely unnavigable. Maybe this is why GenplusGX doesn't load up properly anymore. The card very well could be dying and/or contain corrupted flash RAM. And before you ask, I have deleted both files that control the configuration (both in SD:\apps\snes9xgx\meta.xml and SD:\snes9xgx\config.txt), but that too didn't do a bloody thing. The funny thing is, after the emulator couldn't find the ROMs, I went to see what the device was set to, the load device was set to "auto" when I didn't so much as change it to that, but did it on its own accord. How this emulator could work off an SDHC card fine one day and stop working altogether a couple of days later without changing anything is beyond me. Maybe I should just get a new SDHC card since I've had this one for a while now (even SDHC cards should last longer than a paltry two years). Maybe Kingston brand SDHC cards are just plain and simply crappy.
