    hi there,
    sniff_jazzbox v1.01 is the home brew....
    I copied it to the root of my microSD.
    I ran it in my ds (r4).
    A message said "creating new save file"
    then it finished and froze so I tunrned the ds off and when I turned it back on now it just says "loading" white writing and blank screen .
    So I plugged the SD card into my computer to format it but now windows wont recognize the card.
    what do I do ?
    I feel that the card is broken for good. But how is this possible ?
    thanks!

    Try formatting it in another computer.

    I am not sure how but I did the same thing when trying to work moonshell on my m3 minisd. It wasn't recognised by the computer so I put it in my digital camera and formated it through that and it worked perfectly.

    I doubt it was sniff-jazzbox that corrupted your uSD. It was likely the POS uSD card reader you were using. Throw the piece of junk reader your R4 came with and buy a real reader.

    Use a good brand card reader(USB 2.0) so that you don't have any corruption problems.
