    Im using Acekard2i anyway...
    So Deleted the _aio and akmenu4.nds from my SD card.
    Downloaded 1.7 AKAIO and then Copied the new _aio folder and the akmenu4.nds to my SD card

    When I pressed the Icon it said Loading and then it just turns my DS off, but when put the old _aio and akmenu4.nds i was using before back on it works, so its not broken, It just screws up when i use the 1.7 AKAIO

    How do i fix that? Also, Alot of people are having other issues (not very big ones) with 1.7 AKAIO, is it worth updating or should i just wait?

    [Edit] Still having problems, i tried formatting, didn't help.

    Have you checked it's not a clone?

    What's the HWID? you can find out by going to help in the AKAIO start menu.

    Instead of just coping over the files, start from fresh. Format the MicroSD card with the Panasonic formatter and extract the contents of the AKAIO archive to it,

    Also try enabling/ disabling Cheats, Soft Reset and Download Play.

    Yeah, you forgot to format your microSD. If you don't format every time you update it'll screw up.

    That's not necessarily true, but if the microSD's performance is dodgy, then it may help avoid problems.

    (For instance, my bf has never had to reformat his 2gb and he's updated Wood R4 on his R4 approximately 4 times since he got it.)

    Is the memory card SD-C08G?

    Japan or Taiwan?

    You haven't said what the HWID is...

    When you install AKAIO 1.7, are you updating the loaders?

    Okay the reason I asked is because I was wondering if you had ever tried a full format rather than quick mode format with the SD Formatter utility that tk_saturn mentioned.. I've just noticed that once in a while MicroSDHC users such as myself encountered problems that were only solved once a "FULL - ERASE OFF" format was performed on the MicroSDHC card, though for an 8 GB card I'll warn you this may take a very long time, my guess is perhaps 40 minutes.

    For some reason I've never encountered any such problems on my smaller 512, 1GB, and 2GB non-HC cards.

    If you're sure you had followed what tk_saturn said and your AK2i is not a clone,I suggest you get another mSD and try AKAIO v1.7 (of course format first and do back up data in it) with it.I use AKAIO v1.7 and DSTT fw on one mSD and NEVER had a single problem.THANKS Normmatt and team for the awesome fw ....

    Well, seeing that it is an acceptable reply on the R4 section, why not use it here aswell.

    He says it's not a clone.
    We usually tell that to people with clones on the R4 section,
    not so often to people with 1:1/orig R4's.

    Getting back on topic...

    Okay its
    MicroSD HC
    Class 4
    8GB
    C08G TAIWAN
    PNY
    Yes I update the loaders and wifi plugin (although if you checked 1.7 AKAIO download came with the latest loaders)

    And no ive never done a FULL format of my SD only the quick format, (Until now i didn't even see that it said quick format)
    Also, would it just be better to wait because quite a bit of people seem to be having issues while using 1.7 AKAIO

    Well I can tell you what I did, though it wasn't the same problem I was trying to solve*; it worked.
    I did a full format, put 1.7 AKAIO on it and my favorite skin, did not update anything except the cheat database, and everything is working perfectly ever since the day it was released.
    This process may take twice as long for you though, because your mSD is twice the size of mine, so I'd first just try doing this without the full format:
    Clear off your card or quick format it, put AKAIO 1.7 on it, do not update anything, put a game or two on it to test it, and give it a try?

    and one more question, had you experienced any problems with 1.6 RC2 prior to 1.7?

    (* the problem I had, I was certain was a read error)

    I haven't had any problems before 1.7

    What you just said is exactly what a did earlier, the first time i didnt even bother updating loaders (besides their updated already in the Download)
    the only thing i havent tried is a Full Format, but like i asked before...

    Is 1.7 worth it?
