    Dont understand what you mean...

    Try more times to reinsert it, slightly press the card (not too strong), maybe there are "free" contacts...

    Post some more infos what did you do, step by step, more infos about HW / SW you use...
    (maybe it is dead, maybe bad contacts between SD and AK, or AK with DS - there are many possible reasons)

    So...you have 2 AceKards and set them up the same. One works, one does not. Is this correct?

    Assuming yes, try putting a couple folds of paper on the label side of the non-working card and see if it fixes the problem. If available, try it in another DS.
    Also important, are you using a DSi? If so, you need the AceKard 2i version.

    The above are hardware related tests, as it seems that your software is OK/not the problem. To test this, try swapping your uSD cards. If the non-working one now works, it's the software on the uSD.

    Also, I highly suggest you use the AKAIO software instead of the official firmware. Check the wiki for reasons why (stickied on this board)
