    Randomly dissapering saves for all nds roms.

    I have a DS phat with passkey2, m3 movie player slot2 mini sd, sandisk ultra 2.0gb minisd formatted to fat

    Played Zelda Spirit Tracks yesterday: Saved my progress and when I continued later that day everything worked. Saved again and when I picked it up a couple of hours later my progress was lost only new game slots to select.

    This has happened in other games to, picross ds, castlevania etc and I have no idea why.

    Similar problem here but not the same: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=139233&hl=save see possible bug2


    Any suggestions?

    Try updating to a later version for your cart. If that still does not work maybe the save files are too small and if that still doesnt work umm lol ill come up with something [​IMG]

    I Allready have the latest version, released 2007 [​IMG]
    I don't think the files are to small as the saves works for a while. I think something happens when it copies the savefile back from memory to flashcart at reboot (at random intervals, maybe if I play a certain game or well no idea).

    It's a pain but right now I do backups after every hour of play [​IMG]
