    Put the game into a seperate folder and tell her not to go in it.

    Would the R4 respect the setting if you set the files to read-only (right click, Properties) under Windows?

    Pffft, the solution is simple. Take all your games and save files from the R4DS and place them inside a folder on the PC as a backup file. So your sister can stop that. Also if you sister persist with childish destruction towards your stuff, tell her 'If you don't leave my stuff alone, I make sure Karma get you back 100x folded!'

    Seoul.. (in Korea)
    make 100 folders in a folder, and 100 folders in each of those. Hide all your roms in one of those 10000 folders. And hide the microSD reader.

    well on acekard you can enable/disable hidden files
    if you can do that on r4....
    on your computer go rightlcick> properties> hidden
    and then disable hidden files when shes going to use it and enable it when you use it.

    Well, every single one of you have not understood OP's problem (with the exception of Another World & Vague Rant).
    I know for a fact that, with the R4 you can delete the rom file from your MicroSD whilst it is in your DS (with the press of one button - is it select?). This action, whether deliberate or accidental, deletes the rom but leaves the Save file on your MicroSD.

    That all said, I have absolutely no idea whether any action can be taken to prevent it happening. Sorry.
    Just thought it pertinent to point it out.

    2 buttons iirc, you have to press it (X I think), and then you have to confirm.

    Think about it, if you can......I can only assume OP probably "shares" DS with sister and when she has a turn at playing "her games", she randomnly deletes one/more of his games with the click of one/two buttons (whether deliberate, or otherwise). So, given my assumption of what's probably happening, you think that this solution will help?? OP would need to remove MicroSD, place in PC, hide selected games and replace MicroSD for the sister to use when she wants...and what if they both play certain games under different save files?

    Sorry, but I personally can't see any value in that suggestion. Of course, I have no problem with jaywilson suggesting that idea (as someone may think it is a super idea). No one in their right mind would keep changing hidden properties on their MicroSD.

    BTW, has anyone tried the suggestion by Vague Rant?

    Why didnt anyone suggest DSorganise? He could easily hide his folder of games whenever he doesnt want to use his DS anymore.
    And when he wants to use it just start up dsorganise and unhide your precious folder of games =P

    As above, a seperate MicroSD card is the only choice - also if they play the same games under different saves then he will need to use his pc (or dsorganise) to change saves over - yet changing file permissions (which isn't even necessary) would be a problem?
