Don't know if anyone has come across this problem before with their GameCubes, but it seems that mine is no longer reading memory cards that are in Slot A ... Actually, scratch that; it IS reading stuff from the memory card in Slot A, but refuses to write/save anything to it.

I first noticed this when I tried to play "Animal Crossing", where it initially seemed as if nothing was wrong (it "recognized" all the names associated with my town) but when I tried to actually tried to start up the game it gave me an error message.

Then it started happening with the rest of my games ... It loaded up the game alright, but once I actually tried to save my progress there was an error. I can get by somewhat by putting the memory card in Slot B (although some games refuse to "boot up" unless there's a memory card in Slot A; WTF?) but I was just wondering if there was any "quick fix" anyone has come across before I just go out and buy a new one ...

This happened to me when I was using the MadCatz (off brand) memory cards. I shelled out a little extra for the actual nintendo memory cards and never had another problem.

The lesson: NEVER trust MadCatz unless you absolutely have to.



What are you, some sort of critic?

Nope, these are Nintendo brand memory cards I'm using ... I'm pretty sure it's the actual slot itself that's not working properly, rather than the cards.
