    I have a Phat DS with a M3 where I stick stuff in the NDA and GBA slot. I have a 2GB scan disk. I know next to nothing about computers, and I ma having trouble getting Castlevania:PoR to work. I looked on the thread under the official rom listing, but I am still having problems. There seems to be several settings which worked, but people kept mentioning something about the speed of the memory disk. Can someone please provide a step by step guide which explains how to fix the speed of the scan disk and exactly what settings I should use for the M3 V35e Game Manager.

    Thank you for the help.

    Try patch with no soft reset and put it on safe mode (or whatever it is called now). Other than that, there would be no other way to fix POR unless you want to try formatting the card into an optimal cluster configuration (probably won't work).

    1. Throw away your SD card.
    2. Buy another SD card made in Japan (not Taiwan or something like that).
    3. Profit.

    I'm afraid there's nothing you can do. Sandisk cards are just not fast enough to run POR. Using certain formats may make the game perform a little better but it will still crash. (this has been tested by many different people, they all get the same result)

    On the bright side the game has been out for a while so it's not that expensive [​IMG]

    (to everyone else; shut up about "scan disk", he said at the beginning he's not that familiar with computers so let's just play nice okies?)

    Yeah, get a better memory card, sandisk ones suck.
