    Spaces in short file names cause the error.

    thanks! it works fine now, I wonder why it doesn't work with spaces in short names? Oh well, all I did was rename it from 'MOON (U)' to 'MOON'

    "Contra 4" and a handful of others will have the same problem until you rename them.

    Fat file system is 8.3, with 8 characters reserved for the filename and 3 for the extension. When you name a file longer than that, a virtual file name is created and a the real name is different. When you named it "MOON (U).NDS", the first part of the file is less than 8 characters long, so the real name ended up with a space in it. Same is true of "Contra 4.nds" If you had named it "MOON (US).NDS", It would likely have run fine.

    you're saying there should be at least 9 characters in total?

    No he is saying spaces in short file names cause the error.
    Using no space at all would for sure fix the problem.
