    Just wondering is there any special way to remove roms from the SD card( i just cut and pasted the files to a deletion folder)..Im using r4 with wood 1.43...

    I removed the game and the sav file in question and the micro sd card corrupted and had to be refomatted...Not that it takes a lot of time to reformat and reload the roms..just wanted some feedback

    Thanks

    Get a new card. Yours must be broken.

    Are you going to "My Computer" right clicking the Drive Letter of the micro sd card and choosing "eject", if not, that is why corruption happened.

    What I just told you to do are the step after you have added or deleted roms/saves/whatever from your micro sd card. Try it right now. Put the micro sd card in the adapter and plug it into the usb drive, go to "My Computer" icon (hint: it's on your desktop homepage) and choose the drive (usually the highest letter). Right click on that icon and go down to where it says "Eject", left click it, and you should see a message at the bottom right corner of your computer screen saying "It is safe to remove hardware." This is how you eject the adapter with the micro sd card inside of it. You don't just pull it out!!

    OK. Just remember to do it each time (safely eject), or you will end up with corruption issues.

    Your SD sounds iffy. Make backups as often as you can and perhaps use a different SD reader if the problem persists on different cards.
