    My SD decided to corrupt all of a sudden. It was working just fine and everything was done as normal the last time I used it.

    I managed to recover the files using ZAR but they have all been renamed. Some files are very obviously games which were on the SD but it's difficult to identify the SAV.
    Is there any way I could use these files or are they junk? Thanks!

    You recovered the files using south african currency?
    I'm sorry, I can't seem to find out what else this "ZAR" is.
    You might want to try another file recovery tool. Recuva for example. It might do a better job at retrieving file names.
    Edit: By the way, it sounds like your SD card might be broken.
