    Hello Guys/Gurls,

    I got a R4i SDHC 1.4 (Redbox) and the problem is when i play random backups saves get corrupted.
    Sample is Bejeweled Twist when i play that game it tells me that the save is corrupted and he is going to make a new one.

    I got a Kingston 4gb MicroSd Class4 and did a format with Fat32, have not tested Fat16 yet but hope that would work.
    Also had a problem like when i started the backup Contra 4 and turned off the DS,
    and turned it on again the games where gone.

    Soo random saves just get corrupted, tryed put on the game 1 by 1 and let is make saves for it.
    But then i get random menu crashes on Creating Save.

    Well i hope there is a simple solution for this mather.

    Thanks for now.

    ok this is common problem

    unless u backed-up your saves there gone

    guessing ure running 1.21b

    copy all your games and data off the SD card

    Google "Panasonic SD formatter"

    will give u a website (says .jp but its english)

    download the formatter

    do a format on the card and copy all data back

    this problem is because Windows Formatter is not meant for SD cards

    Nice got 1.21b yesterday lol [​IMG]

    It works! Menu runs way faster and no corruption crap.

    Awesome help m8 [​IMG]

    Btw the problem was not solved by formating, it was my MicroSd card that was not working with my R4i-Sdhc 1.4 (redbox).
    Soo test with another MicroSd card if you encounter this problem and format with panasonic Sd Formater 2.0 or higher. [​IMG]
