    ok,

    1- I recently get random freezes in games. I used to get that while I accidentally touched my memory card inside my dstt, but it got worse. I tried formatting my card with panasonic formatter v2 in FAT, no luck yet.

    2- sometimes when previous problem happens, I get renamed files, a la, my Broken Sword - Director's cut.nds turned into BROKENS~1.NDS.

    and my memory is a Kingston 1GB made in Japan and I think my DSTT is genuine since it is one of the first ones.

    It happened to me once about a month ago.

    No idea what it could be.

    Which firmware are you using?

    Follow the directions in the FAQ concerning what to do if your DSTT stops working properly.

    If that doesn't work, you may have problems with the microSD holder (maybe problems between the contacts of the microSD card and the DSTT). Maybe time to invest in a new flash cart. There are better flash carts for the money than the DSTT.

    Try a different micro SD card, if it still has the same problem, then you know the cause.

    Hmm.. How long have you been using your SD card? It might be time to get a new one if formatting doesn't help..

    I suspect that you are using outdated firmware but you might have damaged your microSD card.
