    Hey everyone, I got a little problem
    my FireLink 16G flash card is doing some funky things
    I updated the firmware to MK5 firmware from NeoFlash.
    Now i notice that when i transfer a save to the emulator on my computer
    instead of using the save I sent it overwrites it and makes a new one.
    I made sure the save type was correct and everything but it just doesn't work.

    Also when i send a .sav file over to my brothers FireCard it does the same thing unless I
    also send the rom that the save was from, it can't use his rom even though I ripped them
    from the commercial game myself ,they are copies of the same file!

    I have also noticed that on the game Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon that even when I delete
    the .sav the game is still at the same point when i load the rom.

    It's almost like the card is writing the saves to the rom itself rather than to the .sav file.

    can anyone tell me what's up?
    should I get a new firmware, and if so which one do you recommend?

    This is driving me crazy.
    Thanks for any help you can give.
