I got my Acekard 2i about a week ago from realhotstuff.com, and it has worked fine. I'm using it in a DS Lite. But last night, when I powered on my DS, the box on the screen where it normally shows your DS Card (above the PICTOCHAT and DS Download Play boxes) is blank. Not "There is no DS Card inserted"; just blank. When I select that box to launch the card, it fades to a white screen, and stays there. I tried a different micro SD card in the Acekard. I reformatted the SD card (with the Panasonic SDFormatter), and put the firmware files on it, fresh from the zip file. I tried the 4.17 firmware from acekard.com, which is what I had on there previously when it was working, and I tried the AKAIO 1.4.1 repack. With everything I try, I still get the same result - blank box where it should show the DS Card that's inserted, and white screen when I select it. In fact, if I leave the micro SD card out of the Acekard entirely, and put the Acekard in the DS, I get that same blank box (and the white screen if I select it), and if I remember correctly, you normally get a "There is no DS Card inserted" if you use an Acekard with no micro SD in it. Can I assume my Acekard has died? Is there anything else I should try? Is realhotstuff.com usually pretty good about replacing things?
