Yes, but the only way to do it would be very hard of an average joe to do. you would have to know how circuit boards worked, and how to soldier.

On pokemon XD it keeps saying that the save file currupts I have alot of room on it but it still crrupts so what do I do to fix this


  • Fully Corrupt:
    When the entire save area of the Memory Card becomes corrupt, the system will inform the player that the Memory Card is corrupt and offer to format it. The card must be formatted before gameplay begins or when the game attempts to access the Memory Card. The exact message may vary from software to software.
    Follow the steps for formatting a memory card.

    For specific issues with the Memory Card 1019, please click here.

  • Suggestion: It is always a good idea to copy your most important files to a second Memory Card as a back-up.

  • Data Area Only Corrupt:
    When only the data area of a Memory Card is corrupt (not the entire Memory Card) the game may not detect this until the Memory Card is accessed. Once it is accessed, the game will inform the player that the file being accessed is corrupt and must be erased. The game will only delete the one file being accessed and will not format the entire Memory Card (Other saved game files on the Memory Card may be OK).
    Follow the steps for deleting a file.

    For specific issues with the Memory Card 1019, please click here.
  • Memory Card is Damaged:
    If the Memory Card has been physically damaged, or has been damaged beyond repair, you will get this message. The Memory Card will need to be replaced. The system may attempt to format the card, but if it cannot it will give the error Memory Card is Damaged. There is no way to recover the game data from the memory card.
    Please use our convenient repair options.

This procedure is only used if a corrupted Memory Card is inserted into the Nintendo GameCube.
If required, this procedure will begin automatically when you select "Memory Card Screen" from the main menu. You cannot use this procedure to erase files from a useable Memory Card.
  1. After selecting "Memory Card Screen" from the Main Menu, if your Memory Card requires formatting, a window will appear to ask for confirmation for formatting.
  2. Use the Control Stick to select "YES" and press the A Button
  3. A window will appear to notify you that all data will be erased and ask again for confirmation for formatting.
  4. Use the Control Stick to select "YES" and press the A Button.
NOTE: When you format a Memory Card, all data will be permanently erased and unable to be recovered.

My Nintendo Gamecube received a big powersurge and now it won't turn on. Is there any hope for it or is it fried ?


  • No Power
    1. Make sure that the words "Nintendo GameCube" are molded into the AC adapter. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible and may not work correctly.
    2. Make sure the Nintendo GameCube has good ventilation. For best results, make sure that the system rests on an open, flat surface. Avoid operating the Nintendo GameCube while it's on carpeting or inside an enclosed space.
    3. Check the vents on the sides of the Nintendo GameCube for a build-up of dust. The system will shut down if it cannot vent properly to prevent overheating. If there is a build-up, remove it using a vaccum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
    4. Avoid the use of unlicensed products such as memory cards, controllers, and cheat devices. Some of these products are poorly manufactured and may result in damage to your system. If one of these products is attached to your system, remove it and try resetting the AC adaptor (see below).
    5. Make sure that your wall outlet works. To check it, try plugging a lamp into the same outlet where your system was plugged in. Turn the lamp on the verify the outlet works. Also, make sure you are not using an outlet that is operated from a wall switch. If you do, make sure the wall switch is in the ON position.
    6. Make sure the AC adapter is attached properly. Firmly plug your AC adapter into the back of the Nintendo GameCube (the port is labeled DC 12V IN) and into a working wall outlet.
    7. Press the power button on the Nintendo GameCube and check to see that the red power light on the top of the Nintendo GameCube illuminates.

      If this fails, try resetting the AC adapter.

      1. Unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, memory cards, and all controllers), hookup cables, and the AC adapter from the outlet and Nintendo GameCube.
      2. Let the system rest for about 45 seconds. While you're waiting, check to see that the cords on the controllers, AC adaptor, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables (or RF Switch) are not frayed or have exposed wires (this can cause the system to shut off); if so, you should replace those parts.
      3. After the 45 seconds, Plug the AC Adapter into the system and wall outlet. Press the power button to see if the system works.


        • If the system works, turn the power off and plug ONE accessory into your system, then turn the system on to see if it still works. Repeat this process with ONE accessory at a time. If your system doesn't work once you put a particular accessory in (GameDisc, controller, Memory Card), there may be something defective with that accessory.
        • If the power does not come on, a repair will be necessary. Because it is not possible to determine which item (Control Deck or A/C Adapter) needs repair, please call our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available options.

    8. If the power is continually shutting off after aprox. 30 minutes, listen to hear if the fan is working while the system is powered on. If the fan is not running, the problem will continue (Nintendo GameCube is avoiding overheating) and the system will need repair.

  • Power Light Flashes
    If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair.

    read my previous post to you and try that and let me know if it worked or not sounds like you will have to follow those instructions. maybe it will work. since the gamecube states the card was damaged so a format will be required so the method will wipe it clean and cross your fingers and hope it works.

    Memory card format


    Try take the card out, then put it back in fully. I've seen this problem before on an Official Nintendo GameCube 251 Block. If there are saves on it, and it still asks you to format the card, just take the card out, and put it back in. You could also try a different slot... Chances are, you just have to take the card out and put it in again for some odd reason. I've seen this fixing that issue. I don't think any of the hardware, i.e. the GameCube or the Memory Card are damaged in any way. Hope this helps.
