    Okay, so I was using my CycloDS a little while ago and everything was going great and then I turned on my DS about 5 minutes ago and held L+R so I could auto boot DQIV and it hung for a minute. This has happened before so I wasn't too worried and I turned my system off and back on again.

    Now, when I open my NDS folder where all of my DS games are kept it shows 2 folders with garbled text. When I open up the NDS folder contents on my MicroSDHC card on my computer it shows folders that look like this: [​IMG]

    When I open Rominator it shows that my NDS folder on my SD is empty, even the saves do not show up.

    So what happened? Is there any way to recover my shit? I really am only worried about one save in particular but if it's gone I am just going to have to accept it. Also, has this ever happened before or should I report a bug on the CycloDS forum?

    In case you were wondering I am using firmware 1.5 beta 2 and I have an A-Data 4 gig microSDHC.

    Thanks for any help.

    looks likes its corrupted, search online, you might be able to save something.
    What I did when that happened to mine was make an image of it so I could erase it and put more games on it while still keeping the corrupted stuff

    Hmmm, I am going to back it up and I'm going to try to reformat it. I'm having trouble finding anyway to recover data.

    Makes sure you don't back it up by copying it with windows explorer

    Yeah, it's not working that way. What other way can I do it? Sorry.

    Thanks Sticks, I just checked it out about a minute ago. I am going to run chkdsk on it when I get home. I am hoping that it works, if not I'll cheat my way back to where I was in DQIV.
