    Yup, thats right, my TTDS is killing itself. It has been working fine since I got it until I tried adding DSOrganize, which is now gone along with all files associated with it(I deleted it because the touch screen refused to work). My larger ROMs freeze after about half a second of loading from TTMenu, Ive tried loading them with YSMenu and they work fine other than my sav files dont work(chances are this is my own stupid fault for trying to be 'organized' and moving them from the root to a new folder). On top of this moonshell2(beta 12 I think) freezes up upon loading through TTMenu or YSMenu, this just started today, a few days after my ROMs died. Ive run the TTChecker or whatever its call repeatedly and it says the card is real every time. Here are the details on my SD Card:
    • Brand: Kingston
    • Size: 1GB
    • Currently used space(after removing YSMenu and DSO): 594MB
    Here is logbuf.txt from moonshell also:

    this is followed by several lines of dashes

    is there anyway to fix this without a full reformat?

    why don't you want to format your SD card?

    just backup your games and .sav
    FORMAT it with the panasonic formatter
    that might help

    Like elixirdream said, your best bet is to back everything up and reformat using the Panasonic formatter.

    You didn't say which version of DSOrganize you used, but the latest version was never finished and can corrupt your microSD card. If you want to use DSOrganize, make sure you use version 3.1129, the last stable release.

    You'd be amazed at how fragmentation on an SD can mess with a flashcart's performance.

    Is everything else working?

    It sounds like your Moonshell2 setup files got corrupted. Which means you'll probably have to re-install Moonshell from scratch if you didn't have a backup of your microSD card from BEFORE it got corrupted.

    well, I just extracted it from the original zip because my stupid ass thought it would be a good idea to use the backup tool instead of cut and paste, but I might go and get the stable version instead of beta

    EDIT: stable version works fine

    you may have your cluster size set to 64K instead of 32k or 16k. IF you do, go to \misctools\Additional
    You should see a text file that says 64K cluster. Pop that in your moonshell 2 folder and that should take care of that. Sometimes deleting the logbuf.txt in your moonshell 2 folder usually solves the problem

    Might check the cluster as suggested. I almost thought it could be a clone but you said it came back as real.
