    I'm getting seemingly random file corruption on my MSD card. I had just got done playing Chrono Trigger and saved the game, turned off my DS, turned it back on and went into my AK2i. It got past the loading screen and just displayed part of the background of my current skin and just sat there. After a little investigation it turns out all my my skins became corrupted. I don't know if anything else became corrupted, so I just replaced the whole "__aio" folder with a fresh one. But if my skins are becoming corrupted, should I be worried about the games becoming corrupted too?


    MSD is a 4GB Kingston Japan that I got with my AK2i through ShopTemp. It was formatted using the Panasonic SD formatter. I have been having some contact issues with it(it looks like the AK is scratching one of the contacts), could that cause it to mess up and write to the wrong spots?




    EDIT: I think it spread to my ROMs too. I can't copy some of them from the MSD to my computer, I get "cannot copy F:\ndsgames\blah.nds the parameter is incorrect".


    What would cause this? Defective AK2i? Defective MSD? What?

    You need to back everything up and reformat your MSD and put a fresh copy of AKAIO on there. That way you'll probably stop all corruptions.

    that was cheerful. I hope the guy above me is wrong...I haven't had problems with my AK2i or sd cards... maybe you could try connecting your sd card to your computer a different way? like through a micro sd to sd adapter? or if you already do that, micro sd to usb? cause at least being able to back it up would be nice.

    This happens to me too. It only effects my ROMS though, not all of them, usually just 1. Even so its pretty annoying, and this started just a few days after I got my AK2.
