Re: multi game card for ds lite

Thanks for giving the card name, that helps to investigate possible causes of your problem.

The common causes of these problems are full cards memory because the seller fill the memory with game roms to make the device sell more attractive, though to save games you need memory and completelly filling the memory capacity of these cards make them to have issues like the ones you told before.

The good thing is that you can connect the NDSL to your PC throught the suplied USB cable and SLOT-2 (GBA game slot) N-Card Flash Linker cartridge.
You can download the required software latest files from the manufacturers website. Once connected, turn on your DS, your PC will recognize it and you will be able to drag and drop files, then you can delete or copy some less used game roms or save files from the card to your PC leaving free space for the others to run.

If nothing of that works for you, then you would try to find a FAQ or support forum site where you can find more options to solve this issue.

Good Luck...

Well when i put when i put my ncard in and turn on the ds it is just a blank screen saying error: xmenu.dat

Probably the xmenu.dat is deleted. Best way is to copy all the games (.nds files) and the log files (.sav files) to your computer, reformat the card and copy back the games from your pc to your card.

"could not erase data"

is this a multi card or a normal game, if its a multi card for e.g R4 or Ncard you need to change the save format settings, but if its a normal game one of the teeth could be damaged or even a glitch, if thats it then you need to take the game back to where you bought it from (depending on how long you have had it between 6 to 8 months)

Ndsl n-card

For the M3Lite The save files on the Card take up very little space, i'd just leave them there, but they should be located in "\NDSSAVE" directory of the flash card (CF, SD, Mini SD, MicroSD).

First, insert the flash card in to your computer. You should double click "My Computer" and locate the drive with your flash card. Double click the drive and you should see a "NDSSAVE" directory (for Nintendo DS games, aka NDS) and possibly a "GAMESAVE" direcotry (for Gameboy Advance aka GBA) saves.

if you right click the directory you should see a pop-up menu, from that menu click "Copy". Then Right click on your desktop (or wherever you want the files) and another popup menu should appear (click paste).

If anything you should worry about the actual games taking up too much space. You can delete the games and the save files should just stay on the card (which, again, are small).

It may be a little different with the ncard though
