    He's probably using R4 (i) (SDHC) or a DSTT.
    Yep save files get corrupted some times.

    Was about to ask him what flashcard he was using ;P cause thankfully my Acekard 2i haven't got any save corrupt issues. Hopefully it will stay this way.

    Eheheh, understand that feelings completely, although we can still save the .sav file onto our computers for backup, I just find it a bloody hassle, unlike the PSP we can just hook up the PSP itself to the computer and transfer files directly. I wish the DS could be hacked internally and transfer files back and forth like the PSP.

    But you can backup save files on R4i SDHC. But i hardly used that.

    Sorry to revive this topic, but my save file got corrupted in the Barde's Manor (this is where Arianna lives so i think it is the Witch's Castle you were talking about). I've just solved the hidden puzzle (spoiler alert begins here) that was on a painting on the wall (the one where you have to find out the correct key), (spoiler alert ends here) then I saved, then exited the Manor, game froze, I reset the DS, and the file was corrupted :(
    I am using Wood R4 v1.37 on an original R4 with a 2GB SD card. If someone has any save file at the same spot or somewhere near it (doesn't matter if it an Acekard save, I think I can convert it), please post it here... the one from post #5 is no longer available. I was keeping my save file with the maximum picarats earned for every puzzle but I won't mind if someone has a save where some puzzles have been solved with less picarats, now I just want to finish the game because i like the story.

    Thanks in advance.

    No one? Really? Ok... well... I could not find a save file in chapter 5 anywhere, I only found save files with the game completed... I regret not backing up my saves more often... I'll give up on this game and start another one, it's a shame but I don't have the patience to start over... well, maybe if I skip the conversations and cutscenes and solve the puzzles quickly (since I already know the answer), I could get where I was in half the time... i'll think about it :)
