I've recently started playing again with my old V1 Tamagotchi (Bandai, Wiz 2004). When I put a new battery, I was able to choose between "download" and "reset", picked "download", and my new Tama continued the family line. A small recurring problem though: sometimes when the Tamagotchi took a little shock, it would reset, and I had to pick again between "download" and "reset" (thus loosing some progress, but still finding my Tama back). But earlier today, when I got it out of my bag, I found the screen with a new egg, and when I pressed a button to start it again, it asked me the date and time, no "download" VS "reset" choice... I don't know why... Maybe because it took two bumps and it caused a reset over a reset?
Anyway, what I'd like to know is if there is a way to retrieve the lost data: the Tama I was taking care of before the incident (her name is Hop and she is loved) and my list of friends. I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but at least the list was pretty precious to me as it registered all the Tamas of my friends from like 15 years ago... Quite the memories...
(I do feel really bad about bringing it with me and not having taken pictures of the long list before, right now...)
Please, if anyone knows of a way to download again when the "download" option was not presented to you/you missed it, it would be awesome!
Wishing you a good day!
