    Zelda has a new save-type, the N-Card team has implemented it in N-Card firmware 1.41, so update if your version is older.
    Auto-Savetype detect don't works on Zelda, you must select it by pressing SELECT+Left/Right in the menu.
    The save type for Zelda is FLASH 4Mbit

    In the menu, on the top screen you see the save type of the actual selected game, hold select and press left/right to change it.

    Freezes: Until now the only freezing problems I spot could be fixed simply by recopying the rom to the card.

    Te simpliest way to check if your firmware has the 4mb save would be to check if there is 4mb save ;> just select zelda, hold select and press right , if there is 4mb: nice, if youve gone trough every save and there is no 4mb: you have to update.

    To fix freezings its usualy enough to recopy the rom =|

    Wait... Doesn't the save disappear after a while when using flash 4mbit? Can't you use 2mbit?

    Zelda needs 4mb save.... changing it to anything else will cause zelda not saving -
    Saves doesnt dissapear 0_o [played trough zelda with my N-Card without problems]
