Cube.ign.com did a report a week ago about the quality of the Mega Memory 16c by Interact. It's a 3rd party memory card for the Nintendo Gamecube that stores 1000 pages of memory (as compared to Nintendo's 59 pages). One would get the indication from reading the article that this is a perfect memory solution. It is not. I bought the card last Saturday and proceeded to transfer (not copy) all of my data to it. I'm well aware that as a Network Administrator, I should get an idiot of the year award for this smooth maneuver, but I guess I'm either too trusting, gullible, or lack foresight in matters of video game saving (I'm only one generation away from saving to cart). Anyway, I played with my gamecube through Sunday night when Gauntlet announced "Corrupt game file, cannot save". Further, every game now recognized the card as needing to be formatted to be useable. Even the gamecube's memory manager sees it as such. Contacting Interact's support they indicated that the card was defective and that the data is just gone. I've since returned the card, but wanted to warn anyone who might listen. I've already posted to the IGN forums, and there is an equal mix of those who are perfectly happy with this card and those who have been equally screwed. I'm now in the process of recreating a healthy Chao garden and recollecting over 250 Smash trophies (not to mention once again opening each character and most levels). If only they'd release the SD memory solution so that I can backup to my computer.
