    This isn't my first time and I haven't had any problems so far, but a recently released popular game which no one else seems to be having problems with isn't really installing the way it should. It's the NSTC version so I used freethewads on it successfully, and even tried downloading one that was regionfreed by someone else but it still won't work. The problem I'm getting is while installing the wad, it manages to install the ticket, title, content ''w9, w10, w11'' but when it gets to w3 it gives me this error.

    ERROR: Could not retrieve/receive file data!
    ERROR: Wad not installed! (ret = -1)

    Help, please?

    Others have confirmed that it works on NSTC and PAL. And it's the exact same wad.

    i think -1 is hardware error on the SD card. either format it, and try again, or try a different SD card.

    I just got this error yesterday with world of goo.

    To fix this, I copied the content of my SD cart to my computer, then I formated the card, and I put the content on the card again and it worked.
    You have to format the card.

    It happened to me because I use an old camera as a SD reader/writer, and when I copied a wad on it, the camera shut down because of not enough batteries and it corrupted the SD card.
