    Hello i just bought a supercard miniSD i received it today instantly got it updated it loaded it with some roms and started to play.
    anyways after about an hour of game play i took the micro sd out of the card to put more roms on it and when i started my gba it says
    Not FAT Format
    Please turn off GBA

    So my micro sd is a 2gb Sandisk on FAT format and ive tried FAT and FAT32

    -Edit- id like to add that i did do a test(holding L and R while starting)
    Test SRAM
    SRAM ok!

    Test sdram
    sdram ok!

    Test flash
    flash id ok!
    flash ok!

    Test SD/MMC
    SD/MMC ok!
    not find test file

    Now SC Version:1.85

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    -as i just received and would like more out of it then a few hours.

    If you have Windows 7, you should be able to just right click on the disk from Explorer and select Format. Change the file system to FAT and you're done. Make sure you have your files backed up though because it will erase them all.

    It could be a contact issue, I remember that happening quite often back in the day.
    Try removing your SC, clean it up, and firmly insert it in the slot again.

    By the way, I can't read half of your post on my dark theme GBAtemp, weird choice of colors.

    Are you using the micro to mini SD adapter that came with the supercard? If so, that could be the problem. Mine stopped working after a while and I got a problem similar to yours. When I got a new one, it was fixed. Try buying a new adapter, or an actual miniSD. In general, the adapters that come bundled with the supercards aren't of very high quality.

    whats with all the crazy font colors makes it hard to read

    Try another MiniSD and use a true MiniSD not a Micro to Mini Adapter
