    well first of all, make sure its not a fake (the fake one will "give you corrupted data" )

    also, what i do is check every single box except for "enable cheat..." when running it through the program

    good luck

    ive never used zipped roms. I suggest you unzip them and try it that way, and see what happens.

    Have you got other DS games running ?

    btw.. the options in the options tab do nothing for DS roms they are for GBA roms. To find DS rom options.. double click the rom in the patcher software once you have added it. (or highlight it and right click and choose 'properties' )

    No the path doesn't matter as long as the rom and save file are together, but do change the saver patch to sd/cf memory card, this will create a save file as well as the patched rom, when you output.

    So,

    1) set 'Rom Position Patch' to 'sd card'
    2) set 'Saver patch' to 'sd card'
    3) have 'Enable Restart', 'Enable trim rom' and 'Fastyer Play Game' all on

    It should work no problem.

    Yes, one of them work Tetris DS. I don't know what can be wrong but i am sure i don't have a fake Supercard mini-sd.
    Do you know any good place i can download roms that work for sure. I have tried everything you said and updated my Supercard but i still get corrupt data in most games. When you start the NDS and the Supercard comes up there are some options like LIST SAVER OPTIONS HELP i shouldn't do anything there?

    Look at the top where it says "reviews" and look up the one for SC Mini Sd.
    If that doesnt work, download and install a older version of the supercard software. thats usually a problem for many.

    I tried with Supercard software V2.53 and it didn't work, i guess you don't mean that i should change the kernel to 1.61. Now i have tried everything but don't seem to get it to save. I am sorry to bother you guys so much.

    Is you're memory card formatted in FAT and not FAT32 ?

    Also are you actually getting a message saying you're save is corrupt ?

    Yes it is formated in FAT not FAT 32. I can start a game of metroid play then turn it of then when i try to start the save i get save data corrupted. It's like this with many games that should be compatible with the Supercard, but oddly it seems like some games work pretty well.

    weird... check this page just to make sure you're card is not a fake .... http://eng.supercard.cn/

    also try cleaning the contacts on the supercard with an eraser or something.
