I downloaded a game recently, and everything was working fine.
I played the game for around an hour, and then turned it off.
( This is on an n-card by the way )
wheneve I turned the Ds back on, and went onto the Menu, Nothing had any memory, and whenevr i tried to load it, it didnt work.
I turned the ds of again, and on, and whenever i did, it says " Error:Open Fat Error! " .
I have had this problem ever since, and have not been able to play the Ds..

Fails when trying to read disc, create a game save,trophy or access network. error code 8001050F


Here’s what’s going on right now: something with the PS3’s internal clock has borked in some pre-slim models. This is not a PSN issue; it has to do with your PS3’s clock. This clock is NOT related to the OS clock. It seems to be a leap year bug. Setting your clock ahead will do nothing. All PS3s around the world were affected at the exact same time.
Does this affect me?
-If you have a Slim PS3, you’re good to go. Continue playing it as normal.
-If you have a “fat” PS3, you may be affected. Some fat PS3s have worked ok, but it seems a good majority have been bugged.
What does this bug mean?
-If affected, your date and time has been set to a random past date. This prevents you from signing into PSN, playing any PSN games, or using any DLC. Your trophies will also not display correctly or be able to sync.
How do I fix it?
-You can’t. Even if you don’t sign into PSN, it won’t help. This is a hardware issue.
So, what do I do?
-Wait 24 hours. Other products that have had similar bugs have corrected themselves after the “bugged” day. On Monday around 6pm central time, all PS3s will automatically correct themselves…maybe.
-If that doesn’t work, we’ll need a firmware update from Sony, which should be a pretty important priority for them right now.
Did I lose my data/themes/etc?
Your save data/games/dlc/themes are fine. They’ll be fixed when the PS3 is fixed. Trophies are uncertain right now, but they’ll be fine if you’ve synced them before the PS3 was bugged. Unsynced trophies are an unknown right now.
If I have a bugged PS3, can I still use it?
It’s probably not a good idea, as I have no idea what will happen to the trophies you earn during the bugged time. Movies/media will work fine.

I bought a ra(ndsl/nds ) for my ds lite and


Mine works fine!!
Download English 1.18 from the R4 website.
Unzip
You should have 4 files on your card
_system_
moonshell
_DS_MENU_DAT
_DS_MSH_NDS
you then add the .nds game files from wherever you get them from
Make sure the card is formatted first, ie there are no other files on it. try FAT. rather than FAT 32. I can't remember which but I've had no problems with either the card or the software, best thing since sliced bread, and it only cost me a tenner.

Try getting the latest version of the firmware for ur ds. After u download the firmware, put ur card into card reader. Use computer to delete everything except ur games. Then put the firmware that you downloaded into the card. See if it works.

N-card error


Depending on what type of card you have, you need to go to the appropriate website and download the latest software files.If the card takes a memory card you may also find formatting the card with the fat 32 system more reliable and this may get rid of the Open fat error also.
Hope this helps

Fat 32 error


If its possible can you get a new multi game card? If not if the warranty is still good take it back for a new ds, or you could always send it in but it takes 2-3 weeks for repairs.

Open fat error in game card pack


I am not sure about that 88 in 1 game card pack you talk about but that sounds like a flash card cartridge for NDS. If you just would give me more information about that game card like seller store or website or device serial/model, slot used and flash type used. I will investigate about it.

The first: make sure the flash card is well plugged into the cartridge and plug it out and in again to be sure. Better if you clean the flash memory contacts with a cloth or q-tip.

Second: find the cartridge documentation and try to find a web page. Usually all the product issues like this are placed in the FAQs area of the manufacturer site. Or at least with the name you can find information in any related forum.

Third: If like I think, a fat error can happen when you use a flash memory card with a fat partition different or not supported by the cartridge hardware or firmware. That is not something that can happen just by using it unlike the files get corrupted. And you always have the option toformat the card, reload the cartridge software, upgrade the firmware, download new game roms, convert them if nescesary and load them in the flash card to play. Usually these devices use FAT16 or FAT file format (not FAT32 until you know this device support that format).

This is all i can say by now with the information you gave me...

Good Luck...

Open fat error


What you need to do is attempt to reset the unit. You need to remove the battery for at least 12 hours to reset the entire information stored in the EPROM memory. If it is new and you just bought it, I would consider returning it for as replacement.
