    I just updated from v1.15 to v1.20 and now it says "Couldn't Find _DS_MENU.DAT". i checked it over and made sure that i have it at the root of my card. how do i fix this?

    This are what i have at the root of my card :

    _rpg Folder _DS_MENU.DAT
    BeUP Folder Homebrew - Games Folder

    Am i missing anything?

    Most highly the one on the root is the old version of the _DS_MENU.DAT.

    Try and re-put the 1.20 contents into root again. overwrite

    put the homebrew folders in a safe place for now and try again with a clean sd card. it would also help if you told me what flashcart it is. R4i Gold? R4DS? R4Revolution? etc etc.

    He already stated from FileTrip, & LinfoxDomain.

    My suggestion: Reformat using your phone (I know its not the best software to format with but we need to clear the data). Copy over v1.20 files only and try that. If it boots, then we're good and its time for you to waltz into a market and buy an adapter for your MicroSD.

    Your phone should have a format option, if you tried to access files from the MicroSD from your phone you should find an option to format the MicroSD. Phone model?
