    just after 3 days, i downloaded eyeshield 21 for my acekard 2. When i turned on the ds and botted the game, everything was fine and so i turned it off. When i turned it back on again and booted a different game, i'm left with this message that says processing...do not power off. This message is still on the screen after 10 min, obviously it froze but i left it on to see if anything would change but i guess not. What i'm trying to say is, what happened? could it be that the file i have downloaded contained some sort of virus that ruined my acekard 2? is the acekard 2 itself acting up or could it be the sd card i'm using?

    btw i'm using a sandisk 2gb micro sd.

    It sounds like it froze as it was trying to create the save file (or load it if it already exists) for the second game. My guess is that either the memory card is full, or it has become corrupted and needs to be reformatted.

    so far, i've tried deleting everthing; re-downloading the files and booting the game. Unfortunately the same thing occurs.

    I'll assume you're using Windows. The simple way is to right click the card in Windows Explorer/My Computer, then click 'Format...' to open the drive formatting utility.

    If you want to be able to change the allocation unit size, you have to format the card from the Disk Management utility. You can get there from the control panel (Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management) or you can run "diskmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) from the 'Run...' item on the start menu.


    Just deleting all the files does not reformat the card.
