    While using my DS I decided I didn't want to use it anymore. (as in turn it off)
    Turn it back on a bit later, try loading M3Sakura.
    lolol guess what? IT DIDN'T LOAD!!!
    So I check the system folder and there's a bunch of corrupt file and folder listings with impossible timestamps, impossible file sizes, and I CAN'T DELETE ANYTHING!!! [​IMG]
    Not through the R4 Menu, not through DSOrganize, not through DSFTP, not through YSMenu.
    Haven't tried my trusty microSD reader and Windows, but I'm loathe to try it at the moment. My microSD reader is buried under stuff. A lot of stuff.
    Can anyone help?

    There isn't ANYTHING to do except format it trough PC..but, from what you wrote, there is a possiblity that Windows won't reckognise it, and won't let you format it..It really seems messed up..
    If Windows can't format it..You'll have ti use mobile phone or some similar device..

    Formatting through PC should work since every other file is okay.
    Just that SYSTEM folder that's screwed up.
    (Wonder how this happened [​IMG])

    Do a checkdisk and it will correct corrupted files. Copy your saves on computer before doing so : just to be safe. Then these files could be deleted if they are corrected.

    Sure, I'll run checkdisk 0.4.
    I don't know of any other way to run chkdsk except by running homebrew. Short of hooking up my card.

    When I wake up 9 hours later, the microSD card and reader disappeared...
    And it may have been pulled out while I was backing up my files.
    As in, IT'S SCREWED UP. BIG TIME. [​IMG]
    Or not. But I still need to find them.
