    Tetris DS used to run fine for me (the marathon music is patched) but now I just get a white screen when I try loading it. I deleted the saved game on the off-chance that might help and it didn't. Nothing about my DS(i XL) has changed since it stopped working... I guess I'll try adding it to the micro sd again... (I remove my acekard and the micro sd it encases as little as possible, lol, I know how cheap it is)

    Might want to try reformatting your msd too.

    I recopied the game to the micro sd and it works again. I guess it got corrupted or something? Hmm...

    Yep, most probably data corruption. It happend to me once, but with other games. But for me it was the announcement that my Micro SD card was about to die, so just take care from now on.
