    Ok i just recently updated my 1gb Microsd to a SanDisk 2gb microsd that I bought on black friday for 20bucks at best buy. Ok so I transferred my files to the new 2gb micro, and seemed to work perfectly, until I tried changing a skin for the DS. So I added the skin and some music to the 2gb Micros, then I turned on my DS and saw that the skin that showed up was the stock skin that first came with Simply M3. So I tried changing it to the skin i just added and it didn't show up at all! my other skins were there but not the one I inputted. Then I changed the skin to one of my existing skins and turned off the DS and turned it on again and it reverted back to the stock skin, not the skin I left off with. Then on top of that i tried running the moonshell program and then it just stop in the middle of loading the program.

    So I plugged in my 2gb back into the computer and tried deleting some files, and it worked on the computer. But then as soon as I load my 2gb into the DS, those files that i deleted from the computer still appear and seems like it was never deleted.

    So i tried formating the 2gb using fat16 and fat32 and nothing, it says it formatted the disk but, when i plug it into the simplyM3, it still has all the files that were there prior to formatting the drive.

    Does anyone know what to do? I am getting relatively frustrated and I don't know what to do. Can anyone help me out?

    yeah the first memory card (1gb) works perfectly, tried to see if it would add/remove files, and it did. don't know what to do with the 2gb now.

    so if the 1g card works fine... might be the micro SD?

    I know that memory cards as they get old start to be unreliable and more prone to being carrupted

    But seeing how this a new card would be strange.

    I'm going to assume that its the micro SD card.

    yeah its a micro....

    just bought it too, went to best buy today and priced increased from 17 bucks to 54 yikes!!!

    hopefully i can get a new one.

    so you guys think its corrupted? i mean i can't even format it, though i can drag the card contents to my computer...

    any logical explanations??? much help would be great.

    If you can't even format the micro SD then its defiantly the micro SD.

    If your wondering what the problem is, it has to be a defective card.
    If anyone was to give you a good piece of advice when buying a card it would be
    to buy a good quality card and don't be cheap about it. It's your data at risk.

    But this is a Sandisk card so I guess it could be rare to have it defective.
    But then again even some of the biggest name have defects. Just exchange it for a new one
    should be good I'm assuming. Until then use the 1gb one [​IMG]

    I don't see why that can't be done.

    They'd most likely exchange then refund it.
