    I've got a few files that have strange modified dates....

    -Cooking Mama 2 and 3 were modified 2 weeks ago even though I never modified the ROMs and I got them months ago...?
    -It says last time I modified the _rpg folder was in May, when I just updated Wood R4 a few days ago.
    -It says some of my .gb, .gba, and .nds files were last modified in freakin 1996!
    -It says the beup-user file generated when I first used Beup was last modified in 2013.

    I've made a big screencap of this... Just look at it! O.o Can anyone explain this?

    I had the same problem with my R4. No big deal, I just ignored it.

    I know but I'm kind of wondering where it gets these dates... And I was kind of hoping to figure out which games I added last so I could check off the checklist I've made up, cause I accidentally sorted everything by name.

    You can't trust Windows. It happened to me before, too.
    Don't mind it since it doesn't affect your gameplay.

    But with the dates all messed up I can't tell which games I've added today. [​IMG] And I'm extremely forgetful.

    Why not make a list in notepad or another program to keep track of when you put it in....... Sometimes you got to rely on yourself.

    Given that you're listing date modified, it could be changing any time you access it on the DS.

    For the odd dates (i.e. 1996, 2013, blank), I'd be pretty sure that something isn't writing to the FAT properly or the FAT has problems.
    You could try backing everything up, formatting the MicroSD and then copy everything back. In fact, if there IS something wrong with the FAT, then it could possibly cause corruption later on if not addressed.
