    How do you solve the save issues with the N-Card???

    No matter what I do this thing either won't play the game or will not save...

    did you just purchase the card. If you did send it back you have got a faulty card. i forgot to say are you picking the right save type?

    My N-Card is having save issues too... Is it time for me to buy a new one?

    Perhaps the capacitor inside (IIRC what is used to handle saves) is dead. I think something similar happened to a friend, except it was DOA >_>

    Capacitor inside is dead? What's that? Today I was playing Ace Attorney 1 and it suddenly freezed.. When I turn off and play the game again, the save is gone again... Same thing happened to Quendan 2... I thought everything was fixed after I upgraded the firmware T_T.

    Try this battery test. It should clear up if you capacitor is broken. Thread

    I checked my N-Card capacitor with DS Linker's (I'm using DS Linker) battery test... Everything looks ok.. So.. What is the problem that keep causing my save corrupted or something like that?

    *EDIT:Passed the test using the new MK5 save memory self-test soft, everything passed. What's wrong with my N-Card?
