    Every time I'm about to finish a game (Second last boss or something) The thing stops loading, so I pop it into my computer and try to open the N5, but then, the "You need to format this drive" message of death appears. Anyone know why this is happening and how to prevent it?

    Know this: the very moment that you decided to buy N5DS is a serious problem, have you herad that it causes NDSs to blow up? Even more, clones are not the real deal, they're just clones, so asking about N5DS in R4DS forum won't give you anything, the 2 things are different physically, the firmware is the same, but the cart is different, I'm telling you, no answer would fit your problem

    Why would you buy an N5?

    I'd say he was badly informed about this N5 and was told they're the same thing, which is a lie, he's just joined us recently, so I'd wager his info is not enough to prevent him from buying that crap

    I suffered the same fate. When going back to the menu whilst playing a game, or loading a game that doesnt having a save then exiting. A good way of avoiding this is if you dont have a save some of your games make sure you create one (power down normally) other the that bin the N5.
