I remember a long time ago that PSP games had an anti-piracy measure that deleted entire mem.stick while playing. It's been ages since i've heard of that and i tough those checks were over. I'm not sure but i think the Final Fantasy 8 from US PSN comes with that protection as well. In CD1, when Edea summons that Twin Lizards to kill Rinoa, you go with Squall and Irvine to save her. When i was fighting them, while they were just casting a spell, the game froze. When i booted PSP again, all my Mem. Stick was deleted, with one corrupted file and the FF8 save (the vmp + ico) in root, with no folders or anything else. Mem Stick does not seems to be corrupted/dead but i cannot guarantee since i'm trying to recover my files first T_T (Accepting suggestions for Recovering Programs) Does anyone else experienced this problem as well?
