What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
The game's main menu won't load - it hangs at a blinking "Accessing. Do not touch the Memory Card in Slot A or the POWER Button." dialog.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
This only happens when the memory card in question has a save file on it for Super Smash Bros. Melee. No idea why. Also unsure if there's something wrong with my Melee save in particular, or if any Melee save works. To be clear: The memory card doesn't need a save file for Fairly Oddparents on it for the issue to happen, Melee is sufficient. If both are present the issue is identical, but if Melee is absent and Fairly Oddparents is present the save loads as it should.
This does still happen if you're using gci files instead of .raw files.

Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
Included a memory card with a save for Melee and Fairly Oddparents. It should produce the error mentioned - then it should load properly if you delete Melee from it.
