    I have the R4i-3DS card from r4i-sdhc.com (not the 4.5 or RTS version, just the regular version). I've had it for a little while and I've had this problem off and on and now it's back and I can't figure out how to fix it. I put the card in my 3ds and turn it off, take the sd card and put it in my computer, and there's a ton of weird read-only files on my card, but I can't delete them because they make the entire SD card read-only. The only way to get rid of them is to format the card and put all of my files back on it again (which takes a long time).

    So why are these files being created and how can I stop this?

    Here's some of the file names:
    gggggggg.ggg
    lkjijkkl.m??
    jn?.o??
    jjjk??kh.hhm
    iihhhggg.ggg
    .ikn
    σ??.kmn

    And the list goes on.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Use a different card reader, preferably not a cheap Chinese import/flash-cart shop one.

    I just tried again and a file called: ?.HP had the following data:

    Where did this data come from? All I did was put in the card and turn it off, there was nothing on the card except the files that's absolutely necessary to run.
