    Whenever I add a new code to an old game or try to add a new game, the gameshark crashes before going to the save changes screen. The words begin to slide away and then freeze at the edge of the screen. Any idea what the problem might be?

    GameShark is not a guarantee success. What game are you trying to do?

    Final Fantasy VII. I haven't played it in so long. This time, I want to have everything instead of finding everything. I'm lazy when it comes to my older games.

    Gameshark was kinda hit and miss, but are the codes for the V5 shark? I know some codes didn't work so well with other versions.

    I've been cross referencing codes already included on the gs with codes found on various sites and they match up. The problems come in when I try to use the new codes from these same sites. I hope this helps.

    Is the "M" (master code) the same? Wonder if maybe a conflict code. I think I remember trying too many codes and my GS would lock up.
    Have you tried one code at a time and see maybe one specific code that locks up?

    None of the codes on the device have M codes, so I haven't added any M codes. When I try to save the codes that I've added, the Gameshark crashes.

    Hmm, so I would try saving one code at a time. See if a specific code causes the crash. Sounding like they are just unstable for that version.
