1. Format the MicroSD with the Panasonic formatter (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=4003).
2. Download the latest version of AKAIO (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=5069) after downloading, extract and put the _aio folder and akmenu4.nds in the root of your MicroSD card.
3. Download the latest loader (http://akaio.gbatemp.net/loaders/020509/ak2loader.zip). Extract and put the file ak2loader.nds in _aio/loaders
4. Insert the MicroSD card in you Acekard.
5. Insert the Acekard in your DS.
6. Done. Enjoy.

One thing to note is that you can create a games folder for your roms anywhere on your card EXCEPT inside the __aio folder (because it is hidden from view on your DS therefore cannot access the files). It is generally recommended that you create a folder called "DS" or "DSRoms" or something like that on the root of the SD card and put all your NDS files in there.

moonshell 2 link just extract the moonshl2 folder and the moonmemo and the moonshl2.nds and the language select.nds to the root of your mircosd. run the language select to select your language and then run moonshl2.nds If your still having throuble reformat your mircosd card because moonshell will not run on a card with errors

I'm not sure what you mean but I've never had any problems with online play or download play so far.

DSOrganise - Folder goes on the root of the card, .nds file goes where ever you want, the rest... doesn't matter.

I guess you can just put the other two anywhere. Nothing needs to be on the root.
