    One of the games I play a lot is date controlled, so I push the calendar forward every so often. That's how I discovered that the R4 Upgrade firmware gives me a "System Date Error" for everything after about April 20th, 2010. Someone on another forum suggested that I revert to version 1.08, which I've done, but instead of the error, it lets me get as far as the game menu and then freezes. Is there any way to keep using this card? (I just gave one as a gift, so I'd feel sliiiightly guilty if it went belly up.) Clearly YSMenu isn't going to work here, as I would not be able to select it from the rom menu.

    Or is it just better to buy a new card? And if so, which one?
