    I'm having a problem on my girlfriend's acekard. I have an Acekard RPG with AKAIO 1.7.1, and it's working perfectly. I just upgraded to 1.7.1 the other day, and haven't had a single problem. But today, I put it on her acekard 2i, and now I'm having a strange problem that I don't know how to fix. The system options on the card don't seem to be saving properly. After I set everything properly, it seems to work right. But when I load up a game and try the L+R+A+B+Y+X+Down to reset back to the Acekard's menu, all the system options get reset to default. But turning the DS off and back on and going back into the Acekard, makes the system options load up just as I had set them. Anybody know what's going on here?

    This question has been posted so many times @_@

    To fix this, format the MicroSD with GParted LiveCD as 1 partition then do a fresh install of AKAIO 1.7.1.

    yeah, I thought about searching, but I didn't know what to search for really. it's sorta a complicated problem to explain.

    From Where???
    no one has collected any data on this issue. we still don't know if its akaio related, msd card related, or user error. this started to happen after akaio was revised into the new devkit, so some of us think its the code. however, no one has recorded what msd cards this happens on. what we do know is the problem is the partition becoming corrupted or incorrectly reported. so something like the panasonic formatter won't fix the problem.

    Dane Elec class 4 4gb(I know, not a great make - good read/write speeds though)

    No issues using this SDHC on any version of AKAIO below 1.6 RC1, after that the issues are all present. I used Gparted, made it all into one partition, then did a full reformat using Panasonic SD formatter. No difference, issue is still present.

    I will check using a Transcend class 6 4gb later.

    Whereas the quality of the SD seems to have an impact, it does seem that AKAIO has become much more susceptible to this than in the past.

    Formatting using Panasonic SD Formatter will NOT leave it as one partition. You need to format using Gparted.
