    I just found out that a game called Digimon World Champion ship came out about a week ago and I figured I should download the Rom. I been downloading Roms for a few months now and I already know how to do it. But when i downloaded this game and put it in my R4 card... and I pressed it to play... It would come up saying

    "The save file couldn't be accesed" blah blah blah

    Anyone know how to fix this?

    So were you playing it on an Emulator on your computer before you put it on your R4?

    Um.... you put it in your "R4 Folder"? That uh.... doesn't sound right >_>

    Firmware needs to be in the root of the Micro SD card....

    Wait a minute, in your first post you said you "put it in my R4 card". That must be that clone with built-in memory, that 2GB thing. Hmmm....

    Nah, I don't think so. I would say I put something in my R4, and I have a legit one.

    What it sounds like is that he was playing the game on a emulator that used a compressed .SAV type. If that was true, you can try using this website to convert it.

    What you need to remember is that he "downloaded the game" and "put it in his R4", which he most likely didn't have a .sav file to begin with. I say he has yet to try the arm7 fix.
