    As the title says, when I launch either Mario & Luigi game, the card gives the error of "load rom errcode=-1". However, other games like Phoenix Wright load properly. I have already tried enabling/disabling DMA, fully formatting my SD card, changing my year to 2010, and trying a different SD card. The card I am using is the R4 SDHC Dual Core 2016 (this one). Is there any solution to this?

    You know that's a clone right?

    Yes, but it was the only card I could get my hands on. Is this a problem only with clones?

    You need to format your µSD with the Panasonic SD Formatter, not Windows...

    ALWAYS BACKUP your µSD to a backup folder on your PC BEFORE formatting!!!

    Format your µSD with the Panasonic SDFormatter
    Use these options to format : FORMAT TYPE : FULL (OverWrite). FORMAT SIZE ADJUSTMENT : ON
