I was trying to play DQM 2 pro on my TTDS but when I started it up it froze then my SD was wiped. Now I am only getting "MENU?" When I start it and can't seem to find a way to get a ttds menu. Any help?

Have you checked the files on the sd card on your pc? To see if it's indeed wiped?
Sounds like an sd card issue, you need to test it with h2testw to check it's not faulty or defective. Backup your data before doing so. Format it as FAT32 32kb clusters before and after the test.

I'll explain what happened. Running that game, the software was unable to create the .SAV file for some reason (unsupported characters??) and it got stuck in the process of creating the file. By turning off the console you corrupted the file and the entire SD card. A similar thing happened to me 2 times, using the r4 gold pro's own software. With YSMenu it has not happened again.
Unfortunately you have to format it and re-copy its kernel and roms. 😩

Note: Probably if you insert that card into the PC, you will see that it will not be able to read it, or that will contain one or more files with random letters and gibberish symbols. 🤔

Before you format it, try scanning the disk filesystem. Windows lets you do that from the Properties menu or with chkdsk.

    @KenniesNewName That's the problem with gadgets, there's a new one being leaked, announced, released every week, and if you wait for something better to come along you can wait forever, there's always something new on the horizon.

    Same thing with price too. Miyoo Mini is $50 and it's fine, but RP2 is only $100 and has way more options, but now there's the RP3 and it's just $30 more, but the Ayn Odin Lite is $190 and it's very powerful, but the Ayn Odin Pro is $250 and it's an absolute beast, but now we're already in the Windows handheld range and I really would like a Windows handheld... Ayn Loki starts at $200, but why not add a few bucks for better specs... but now we're close to the Steam Deck and that is a much better choice...

    So we get from $50 to $500 in tiny, reasonable increments.

    My attitude in those cases is to decide what I want in that particular moment, not waiting for emminent releases. And decide based on function, that is, if I will use it almost daily and if it satisfies my desire/need

    I just give up on buying anything and wait until the desire subsides. Works just as well.
