    So i just bought this Ace3DS plus awhile ago and it finally shipped here today, My issue is that when i put it in my 3DS with my Kingmax SD Card. it didn't say anything. i downloaded the Ace3DS Plus kernal. i tried cleaning on it, blowing, and checking the slots for the 3ds if its dirty.

    When i insert the Cartridge into the 3DS i see the the "There is nothing inserted into the game card slot" Blink very quickly but nothing seems to happen.

    I Contacted the Guys i bought it from and still waiting for a response if they can help out or if the card's just defective. but i decided to see if anyone else encountered the same problem also and if they have prevailed in some way.

    3DS:
    N3DS LUMACFW + A9LH 11.3

    SD Card: KingMAX SD 2GB

    Flashcart having the issue:Ace3DS Plus

    Please respond back if you know how to solve this..

    Why did you go with that cart? It was never officially supported and used an out of date/stolen version of Wood R4. I didn't even know they still made those cart .-.
    Buy a better card, like an R4i Gold

    You could have gotten and R4 for less used this
    It sounds like your cart is having contact issues

    In case this is being caused by poor connection, consider clicking it in and out a few tens of times to see if it "adjusts", holding it slightly down with your finger when it isn't being detected to see if it works, and on the long term inserting a piece of paper between the front, label-side of the cartridge and the slot.

    Just tried the paper technique and what your doing. I Get nothing. and when i let my 3DS sit and i use it again it works but when i play for some time it dosent. I Might just try getting a refund. and if i do. do you have any cards that are known not to have the contact issue?

    I wouldn't be able to tell you what is wrong then. It was worth trying since when something like that happens, it's the most common issue. Definetly get a refund if it isn't working, but I wouldn't know what card to tell you to get in its place, I'm no longer up to date with DS flashcarts. If you have a bigger budget, get a Supercard DSTWO, it's the most feature-rich DS flashcart on the market.
