Information:

Console: Nintendo DSi XL 1.4.5 U.

Twilight Menu version: v16.6.0.

Twilight Boxart version: 0.7.

Explanation: A few days ago, I was thinking about introducing Boxarts to the games I had in the Twilight Menu, so I started looking. Whenever I was looking for where to get Boxarts for Twilight Menu, people recommended Twilight Boxart, so I downloaded it to try. Once downloaded, I proceeded to open the program, configure it, put the SD in, scan it and start it. After a few minutes, the program throws an error (I think it said that the location could not be found, I do not remember), I closed it so that another appears, and then another, another, another and so on until the program "finished downloading the Boxarts ". After those errors I am going to check my SD, only to find the unfortunate result ... I delete all my data, other than that Windows forced me to format my SD in order to use it ...

I would appreciate someone with experience on this, to answer if it was the program or an "external agent" that caused this loss of data to the SD. If not, I would appreciate if someone could recommend a page to download the Boxarts manually.

TwilightBoxart never deletes any files, it's simply not in the code. It will only (over)write boxart files and that's it. It seems more likely that the excessive writes to the SD have caused it to corrupt.

If you want to try a 'safer' way you could point the output location to another location (not your SD) and copy the files manually later on, but it would only be extra work without any real benefit. ;)

    I've got a clone, it works fine, but I can't get it to play nice with my SDcard reader.

    like an sd card slot extension thing?

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    Yeah, to load from (and save data to) an SD card plugged into the serial port.

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    You test that extension thing through a regular usb reader on your pc? Could just be a shit one. Bought one for my 3d printer and it just straight up doesn't work

  • MightyJAK @ MightyJAK:
    it can't be plugged into a USB reader (it's made from a regular SD card to USB adapter, but with the USB end modded to a Dreamcast serial plug)

    It was working fine before I installed the GDEMU, but now the Dreamcast doesn't recognize it when I boot up Dreamshell.

    Can't find any threads about this particular issue on GBAtemp or the wider intarwebz. Saw one video on YouTube that seemed relevant, but it was some dude with the same issue, no solutions offered in the comments. :/
