    I constantly have to reformat my SD card, and whenever I do, the old saves I recover from the SD card don't work. Why is this?

    I use the n5... which is basically a cheap poorly manufactured version of the r4.

    Over there.
    Did you make sure that the save file name has the same name as the game?

    Yes, it is the same name. And I constantly have to reformat my card because for some reason it keeps getting unformatted. I plug it in and it says SD card isn't formatted.

    Maybe because it's an N5? No offense but there have been a lot of issues with the N5.

    Yeah, N5 hasn't been technically approved by gamers, what with NDSs blowing out everywhere, and microSD roblems, maybe yours is an unidentified illness of N5?

    At least you're lucky enough not to have one that breaks your fuse. This problem would probably fixed by not using the N5 like everyone else is saying. Probably time to look for another flash cart.
