    Okay I am having 2 problems with Tony Hawk's American Sk8land.

    First problem: When I try to talk someone in Story mode, both screens go white and the music freezes (studders over and over again)

    Second problem: When I am just skateboarding around the game randomly freezes.

    I am actually using a M3 Simply and not an R4.. but they are lthe exact same. The MicroSD I am using is a Kingston 1gb Japan.

    this problem does not occur with an R4 Ds

    Perhaps you should go on the M3 forum

    they will be better enabled to help

    sorry [​IMG]

    Both cards are identical, so it doesn't matter where its posted. It sounds like you have a slow memory card, try getting hold of a kingston japan micro SD. That should fix your problem [​IMG]

    Just because you have a japanese card, doesn't mean it's fast. It just means that the probability of it being fast is better than a taiwanese made card. It's probably at the lower end of the batch.

    this might not make a difference, but try using a copy of

    the game from a different region, if your using the usa then

    use the EU, i don't know but it might help,

    plus i don't have a fast Kingston but mine works

    with tony hawk

    fine [​IMG]

    try another cardreader/writer. the one that comes with the r4/simply is crap. slow and corrupts some games. had that with phoenix wright and bomberman.

    Buy a new MicroSD and see if it works

    If it doesn't, it's your R4
    If it does, your original MicroSD is too slow
