    How do you format an R4?
    I think you ment to say you formatted the microSD? In which case do you copy everything that you had on it before back to it (including firmware files?). If not then download the latest firmware files in your language and copy them onto the root of your microSD.

    yup( i have 1.26). i kind of fixed it now there is just one map but, if i have a new game and play it. it normaly gives you the option (A)Make a new Save game (B) Back (X)Ignore. if i tap A it makes a save game and the next time i play the game... the save is gone!
