    Hi, I have a fake DSTT and recently I've started playing Pokemon Pearl. Now the first time I saved, it got corrupted for some reason (I did nothing wrong), and got lost, fine, so I started again, saved, went well, then I played for a good 2-3 hours, achieved a lot and saved, then next time I tried to play said the save was erased.

    What I want to know is will I have these problems aswell with Pokemon DIAMOND? Not Pearl?

    its the fake DSTT most probably thats causing the problem. Ditch it and get a real one, or something better.

    From the sounds of it, you have not updated all of your firmware files. When it starts the game, it's creating a .sav file, but its not saving it as a 1 MB file.

    Get the lastest Firmware files from the downloads. This should fix the problem.

    Pokemon DP uses 512KB not 1MB.

    Consider backup and reformat, and then update to the latest firmware if you haven't.
