    This is a long post!

    First, the now. My N5 won't open. Yay! [​IMG] Here's how it happened.

    I downloaded a Yu-Gu-Oh 2010 Reverse of Arcadia rom. It was "patched," or so it said on the title when i downloaded it torrentifically. I placed it in the games folder. Nothing suspicious.

    Until I open it, and asked to create a .sav file. Of course, i created one. Normally, it will only take a few seconds. As in few. But this time, the loading bar doesn't move. [​IMG] I think i tried to restart the DS. As in power-off-power-on type of reset.

    From here on, the memory is a bit foggy.

    After restarting, I first notice the heading of games.... 4 Games. Now my SD card was 1 GB. Of course, i will put as much games as i can. And now, the games have deleted themselves. So I disconnected the micro SD from the card itself, and opened it with the computer.

    On the computer, there were really only 4 games. The SAVs were still there, but the NDS files disappeared. And amidst these were: a folder and a file, both with special characters. I can't open them, can't delete them.

    I open it again with the DS. Now, no more games!!! YAY! [​IMG]

    Now, when the N5 is opened with:

    1. When opening the N5, after the word "Loading" disappeared, it just freezes into a black abyss.
    2. N5 can't be opened.
    3. Without N5, the DS functions normally.

    Here's what it looks like in the games folder:

    The details of the files:
    Wonder how to read that. =P
    How can a 1GB microSD contain a 2.28GB file?! [​IMG]

    To be honest i don't know what the [​IMG] is there for. xD
