    Really? If it doesn't read the save game data then the usual suspect is an incorrect save type. Does this happen with all games or just the 2 that were mentioned?

    This is a long shot, but try downloading the rom from a different site.

    this happens to all games, actually to be precise, when i try to even load the game, it says unable to load data and restart (sorry castlevania [​IMG])

    It really sounds like a save problem. When you try to load a save that is in the wrong format for a game, it usually tells the user that the save is corrupt (in actual fact it is just read incorrectly, or along the lines of that, since the save is in a different size). So you have tried:

    1. Switching save types (You press Select + L or R to change types when you hover over a game)
    2. Trying a different source for roms

    Changing save types and getting roms from romnation.net does not change the problem at all. does it have anything to do with the firmware? because i already updated over five times today.
