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.

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.
