    So...I was loading Robot Taisen on my SD card and got a cyclic redundance error. Afterwards my microSD completely died lol.

    I think god was trying to tell me something, either not play ROMs or not play games with tons of boobs >_>

    Or it was a coincidence, as MicroSDs die all the time.

    I honestly don't think a specific ROM could cause the microSD to stop functioning, though people have tried making DS viruses.

    However DS viruses don't messed up SD cards but the DS itself by erasing the firmware.

    I know the game itself didn't mess up my SD, but it's too bad I got messed up before I tried the game. I wanted to try some of the crazy combos.

    Have you been messing with the microSD? They're really small, so they break easily.

    I actually tried breaking a microSD in half with my hands, it doesn't work, those things are pretty damn firm. Water doesn't hurt them much either. The only physical damage I can think of is scratching the hell out of the contacts, but that would only happen if you did it on purpose. Ordinary wear a tear will not scratch the contacts to the point of unreadability.

    So it's actually the internal damage that's caused by writing, deleting, reformatting, etc. that ended the TC's microSD's lifespan.
