    Guess what happened? My GameCube Memory Card got corrupted, deleting all of my game files except for ONE of my Paper Mario TTYD files, my sonic adventure dx file (though it did erase my Chao data) and my Super Mario Sunshine file (thankfully).
    :mad2: Can't do that on GameFAQs

    This happened to me once, but that was a long time ago... I believe it was only one or two of my game saves, but I was still pissed.

    GC Memory Cards = unreliable (usually).

    MadCatz has a bad reputation to fail... especially during the last console generation. Even though my memory card's failure was minor, it was a normal Nintendo-brand Memory Card. It was the smallest memory card you could buy, though.

    Yeah, and it was the only one that would fit in the game case.

    Yeah, it was probably MadCatz then, it can fit into the cases fairly easily.

    I'm gonna be playing my Wii alot this summer...

    How does corruption even happen? I've had the same GC 251 memory card for almost 9 years and it's never once lost any data. Don't fool around with it, don't take it out while the console is on, and don't let it get dirty. It's not that hard to keep in good condition.

    Any questions answered?

    And your a bit late. I already recovered most of the data that was lost.

    Nope.

    But, for future reference, here's a bit of advice: You know that screen where it says...."SAVING. DO NOT TOUCH OR REMOVE MEMORY CARD IN SLOT A. PLEASE WAIT."....Yeah, that one? Well, it might help to, you know, not do the opposite of what it says, and then your data will be fine.

    Yeah... I don't remember doing the opposite.
    And the last post before yours was in July. I consider that late. I don't know about you though.

    GC memory cards were/are a bit wierd.

    i have two and both are kept in the same condition; stuck into slots A & B and almost never coming out. this is pretty much how its always been. yet last year the one in slot B suddenly lost all its data from a 'corrupted file'. i hadn't even used B in months and it got corrupted.

    a lot of GC owners have had the same problem. they take perfect care of it yet they'll randomly lose thier data. which is why GC memory cards are wierd.

    I've never had this problem, so perhaps it has something to do with certain in-game glitches, who knows. I have two 1019 memory cards which I use as my main, and a 251 which I use to backup my most precious data, so either way I'm covered- but still, it's odd because I've never had such a thing happen. I think it has something to do with dust, perhaps.
