    I was reinstalling my firmware to my m3ds real. Before reinstalling a made a backup file on my computer with my games, and saves. After reinstalling I start a game, but I get an error on the bottom screen that says black , and says the following "Save Data File Fromat error." Yes format is spelled wrong too. So I thought maybe during the reinstallation the files got screwed up. I delete the NDS folder, and put the backup one I had on the m3ds. The same thing came up. I have alot of save data , and don't want to restart all of my games, So what should I do?

    Nevermind I fixed it myself. The system file was screwed up when I moved it to the transflash. So I had to re move the system file and delete the one I just moved to it.

    Have you tried another MicroSD? I just started a couple new games with 3.6 and have not encountered the save error. Or perhaps re-install the firmware?
