    Ok, so I;'m running everything on a Supercard DS One. I first tried to load up Crystalis, and that would not load. I tried Megaman III, and that didn't work. I loaded up Megaman 6, and that worked, but when I went to File>Load Rom, it froze. I tried Megaman II and that worked, as did every other Megaman game after. So I decided to load up a different version of Crystalis since the game is on the compatibility list, only to experience the same freezing. I tried Zelda II, and Startropics, and they both froze. The only game that is working is Megaman 6; the other Megaman's are not loading up anymore.

    Does anyone know how to resolve this problem, with getting games to load up properly? Also, does anyone know how to fix the in game rom loading problem, that doesn't allow me to load up another rom while playing a game?

    It sounds like you're having problems with games that have SRAM; maybe you should try running a chkdsk on your microSD, and possibly manually patch the nesDS ROM for your SCDS.

    I can't run chkdsk, because I am running Linux at the moment. My Windows install is FUBAR, and the Linux equivalent can't be run on a mounted volume without everything going to hell. However, I did manually patch the file, and that did not help. It's a strange problem.

    After removing all of my Crystalis backups, I noticed that I could load up the Megaman games again. However, I cannot load up any games that require SRAM, nor can I load up a game under File>Load, while running a game. I replaced the didl.bin file with the scdssdhc.dldi that I converted to dldi.bin. I patched nesDS with the same file manually, and that hasn't helped. It seems like the games I have in my folder affect loading,as I noticed when I added and removed Crystalis. I've exhausted all of the solutions that I have found searching the forum, minus attempting to format my Lexar 4GB SDHC card to 64k cluster/the Panasonic format that someone mentioned.

    Whatever the issue is, it seems to really be a problem with Supercard DS-ONE users. If there's any Supercard DS-ONE users that have got to the bottom of this, please pitch in. It certainly seems to be an issue that needs to be addressed.

    Hi. I notice you're using an MSDHC card with your SCDS1.

    I've got pretty much the same problems when using my supercard with my 8gn msdhc, and I don't have them when I use my 2gb regular msd.

    I think it's related to the hc micro sds.

    I've not found a fix for it yet either. But try using a normal msd, that'll probably work flawlessly!
