GameCube Memory Card won't work.

Post by Gravela » Sat May 04, 2019 3:32 pm

Hi, I just purchased a GameCube off of eBay and a memory card. The memory card is brand new, but the system is used. Its a NTSC-J GameCube and the memory card wont format when its inserted into the GameCube,
When formatting it says, "The initialization may have failed," followed by, "You can not use the memory card in slot A." (This is translated using google translate.) I have tried to blow on the memory card + slot. I have tried to use slot B, gets the same error. Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have a way to launch some homebrew ? A hacked wii maybe ?
GCMM is able to format memory cards.

No way to access homebrew.

Do you have any other memcard to check if the GC can access and write to it correctly?

If the brand new memcard doesn't work, it may be defective, contact the seller/manufacturer to get a replacement.
In no way you can accept a card that can't be used nor formatted the "normal way", even if GCMM would be able to do it, this is not a good thing to begin with, especially if it's your only save support, it has to be reliable from the very beginning.
