    I was making my own skin and taking and inserting microSD like 6 times and then went to NDS folder and saw my Yu-Gi-Oh_World_Championship_2007_USA.nds was changed ito YUGIO~1.nds

    why is that?

    that also happened to .ARP file of NSMB some another time.

    Well, FAT16 doesn't get along with long file names very well - in fact, long file name support in FAT16 amounts to a hack known as vFAT. If you have a whole lot of files (more than 500) on your card, it might have run out of room for long file names. More likely, however, it's due to a corruption in the allocation table. Did you try changing the name back to the original long file name?
