    So, I turn on my dsi to use my acekard 2i after several months of use, and instead of the usual danny phantom fake-ds game image thing, it was just white. And my dsi says the whole error can not read thing. I do not know why it decided to do this, and It hasn't worked at all after that point. I've tried replacing everything, changing the firmware to the official Acekard team one (I was using AKAIO before), and stuff. And yet, it still refuses to work.

    I had to update it with teh 1.4 before hand, and it doesn't even work on a normal ds (lite).

    Is it bricked, if so do I have to get a new one/is it possible to fix?

    Thanks.

    Put a piece of tap on top of the sticker on the front. Most likely a contacts issue.

    Thanks, I'll try it.

    By the way, I forgot to note in the first post, it is a real acekard2i. Just thought I'd mention.

    TEH EDIT: Well, that fixed the reading problem (it had problems actually reading the card.) But didn't fix the white screen fading to black screen problem.
    I am also going to try re-putting in the akaio firmware.

    EDIT#2: Nope, didn't work. I still need help [​IMG]

    make sure the contacts of your MicroSD and AK2i are clean. MicroSD contacts are vulnerable to finger oils. Use what you would normally use to clean eyeglasses or camera lenses but avoid liquids.

    have you ever used SD Association Formatter 3.0 to format your MicroSD? back up your games/savs and do a format on the FULL/ERASE OFF setting.

    then extract/add akaio 1.7, add a couple games to test, and Safely Remove the MicroSD from the reader.

    if it still does not work please describe what happens because I don't understand when in the boot process you're experiencing a problem based on what you have said so far.

    Well, I didn't quite get what you mean. But let me tell you something...
    I have an original AceKard2i...
    One day I got a bunch of DSi ware...
    And I felt like messing around with my AceKard.
    The Danny Phantom thing showed up.
    I clicked it.
    And there was a black screen sort of like this:
    [​IMG]
    And well I kept trying and trying.
    It kept happening.
    I backed up all the info on my Micro SD and formatted it.
    I tried again.
    It didn't work.
    I re-downloaded the software and replaced the existing one on my Micro SD.
    It worked [​IMG]
