    I have an EZ Flash V plus. I was playing a Super Mario hack on a SNES emulator. After I while, the save-state function didn't work. I turned off my nds and started it again.
    I got a black screen with
    "Main=0x6018000
    ....[a bunch of other stuff]...
    Detect FAT32
    Initial FAT filesystem OK .
    keys down = 1800
    Can not open ez5sys.bin."
    So I took out my MicroSD and plugged it into my computer. I opened it up and found this: http://img519.imageshack.us/img519/8939/errorhg.png
    I can't delete any of this stuff, when I try I get a window that says: "Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk."
    It is 10gb and my card can only fit 2gb..
    What the hell is all this? The last time seems to be something to do with the emulator so I will assume it was the emulator's fault...
    All my games and gamesaves were wiped, my EZ Flash V+ software was also deleted..
    What happened to my card?
    How can I fix this?
    Is there anyway to recover the lost data?
    Tell me if you need anymore info.
    Thanks for helping!

    Open a windows xp DOS box and type :
    chkdsk x: /f
    where x: is the letter of your microSD.

    See if you can recover some data from your microSD and check my sig for a quickstart guide (firmware chapter is not necessary for your EZ5 plus).

    It seems I could get some data back, [I just tried it] but I have to delete the weird files I already have in there first. Is there a command for that? I googled the problem and I've tried "RD/S G:" and Del "G:lankTile.Num" and none of them could delete it cause they couldn't "find" the file. Thanks for the command/help MBmax, I'll use if when I manage to clear the crap from the card..
    [I googled it and it was suggested that I use a program called "Unlocker" and so I downloaded it and tried it. It gives me a message saying "The object was deleted." but it is still in my disk..."

    Anyone know how to delete this stuff?'


    Edit: I just tried to create a folder in the disk and got a message saying "Unable to create the folder "New Folder" The file or directory is corrupted or unreadable"

    Woah! THANKS SO MUCH! [​IMG]
    You are awesome! I thought my card was corrupted and unusable..
    It works!!!!!

    Thanks MBmax!



    What's next? [​IMG]
    Edit: I don't think the command fully completed 'cause there wasn't any room on the disk.

    Now you have access to the microSD's content, backup the most important data. I suppose your saves, right ?

    That done, follow the link in my sig to properly re-install the last kernel on your microSD to avoid again some fat corruption (skip the firmware chapter as i said, not needed on ez5 plus).

    And the most important, let enough free space on the microSD. [​IMG]

    EDIT: Never mind, I formatted the disk and got my memory back. [​IMG]
    I tried the command again and it doesn't put any data back into the disk..
    Where is the data?
    Thanks.

    But, why have you formatted your microSD ? i didn't asked you to do that.
    chkdsk command is just here to fix FAT corruption, it can't undelete formatted data.

    When you have done the chkdsk command does it found you lost chains ?
    If yes, what have you answered at the convertion question ?

    Aw, okay.
    Uhm, I have some questions upon installing the EZ Flash stuff onto the disk.
    [I wasn't the one who set it up the first time, so this is a bit confusing]
    Info: EZ Flash V plus
    SanDisk 2gb

    I formatted.
    I downloaded the kernel. [EZ5 Kernel 2.0 RC10] This kernel will work fine on EZ Flash V plus right?
    I am nervous/confused about the firmware. The guide is for EZvi, while I have EZ Flash V plus. Could you clarify some things about the firmware?

    You can trust me, this guide can be followed for your EZ5 Plus, but skip the chapter 4 (firmware update) like i told you.
    This is only for EZVi. [​IMG]

    K2.0 RC10 is compatible with all ez-flash V version, which mean the v1, v2 (new year edition), Plus and i.

    Sorry, I assumed I needed firmware 'cause I see all these threads about it. [​IMG]
    Setting up was a lot easier than I'd expected...
    I got my games to work, major thanks to you. [​IMG]
    A few quick questions:
    Is Moonshell included in this? [There was a folder called Moonshell in the old kernel I used, but it isn't here.. o_o]
    How do you use cheats on this kernel? [Before you just activate and select.. Here I click "a" and the cheat turns off..]

    Thanks for the help.

    You need to install moonshell 2.09 stable. Download it HERE
    Uncompress it on your PC and run the setup.exe. It will install you moonshell on your microSD.
    Once done just press the moonlight to launch moonshell when you are under the kernel. To return to kernel from moonshell press start and return to system.

    About cheat code, all is explained on the wiki in my sig. [​IMG]

    I've been spamming my "Y" button with all the things turned on and it doesn't bring up a menu of cheats..
    I don't see an option called "Cheat Field" either..
