I've got a problem with Mario Tennis Open 3DS.
I was playing the game in online mode few weeks ago. Everything was ok until the battery died during saving.
Since then my 3DS has been showing me the message mentioned in the tittle.
I post a video below to make it a little bit clearer.

I also tried resetting save data with A,B,X,Y combination. But itdidn't help and the message is still the same.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

Got an R4i Save Dongle? If so, you could try using my command line tool (from my signature) to erase the save data and see if that makes a difference. Otherwise, the game card has probably developed a fault and may need to be returned to the store you bought it from.

Tho what you are saying is probably correct, I have never heard of this happening to any game cartridge.

Me either. However, something similar has happened to me with flash storage devices back when I was a little new to Linux. I'd use a command to copy files followed by an immediate call to umount, then remove the USB. I went through 2 devices before I realised what was going on. Basically, the data on the flash was corrupt due to not being fully written and it could no longer be written to either, possibly due to not being powered down correctly before unplugging. I'd imagine the same thing could happen with any flash storage device (including a 3DS card).

Nope. But friend of mine will try to do something with this using NDS Adaptor Plus. I bought the game on ebay so there's no way that i can return it. Also there's no Nintendo consumer support in Poland http://microsite.nintendo-europe.com/poland-europe/ So they can't help me either

If you don't get it working, would you be interested in selling it as faulty and sending it to me in the UK? I'm pretty handy and would like to have a go at fixing it.
