    Right, I need some help & suggestions on what to do;

    My microSD (8gb) was working fine on my DS, until I tried out a new rom - which created a new .sav as usual. But it seemed to've got stuck & didn't load the game & just left me at the rom menu. Tried loading again. It froze. Turned my DS off & on - wouldn't load the menu & had the little icon of 'Menu?'

    Since then it hasn't worked.

    I then connected it to my sister's computer (her's was already on) & it said it had some problems. I let it scan & recover whatever 'bad sectors' it could.
    (any bad parts put in a 'found' folder or something...)

    Looked into it's folder - blank.

    Properties of the MicroSD - Full, not 1mb spare.

    In fairness, I've filled it up quite tight.

    So, anyone any ideas on how to help me?

    I could really use the help!

    Thanks!

    You 'overloaded' it. You probably didn't have enough space to create the save, but the card didn't know, and couldn't stop. Happened to me once, and all I could do was format it.

    i'm afraid not, it happened to me twice, and reformatting was the only option. always remember to keep some free space on your card. like 3-5 mb
