I hate to break it to you, but anytime you are dealing with a corrupted file, there is no way possible to fix it. You will have to restart. That's why the warning saying "Do not remove memory card nor turn off the system" is for.

Ok first of is it corrupt file or Corrupt memory card. Corrupt file happens and rustongzeldafan123 is right can't fix it BUT if it is just asking you to format your memory card then don't and just keep trying to play it will eventually work.

See I made an account but then it got corrupted so I made another one and saved that twice so if it got corrupted I would have the other file. But when the first one got corrupted, I tried the second file and it too was corrupted! I made sure I saved very carefully! I tried everything possible to fix it, look in memory card settings. Everything possible but nothing worked. I don't want to start over for a third time just to see it get corrupted for no reason. :/

Ugh D: I have the saaaame problem! I've started over on this game FOUR TIMES! OAO
I'm OCD about saving because I, like all gamers, hate losing countless hours redoing what I've just done due to faulty saving. I know for fact it isn't a problem with hitting the power button while saving/removing the memory card while saving since I've saved several times in a row and made sure it was done saving before turning everything off.

However, I think I've noticed a similar pattern.
When you save, exit out of the save menu so you see your character again. It seems to be the factor I skipped one too many times before turning everything off. Maybe this increases your chances of successfully saving? I dunno, better safe than sorry... For the fifth time...

I seriously hope this can be fixed somehow, even though it is an old game, I wanted to finish it... And I will not start over agaaaaaaiiiiinnnnnn. :I
