    OK,this is the problem : I bought 2 acekard 2i's and only one of them seems to work.

    The chip and hardware id are good (like in the sticky).
    The card that doesn't work only runs the official software, not akaio.
    I tried the latest akaio and 1.5
    When I try to go into the menu I see loading and then a blackscreen.
    With the official I can go into the menu.
    So I can try to update from the official firmware.
    The 1.4.1 firmware updater hangs at 0% tho
    No matter which file one I use ( I use a dsl )
    I already formatted the sd card with the panasonic tool.
    What can I do??

    You might have a fake sd card. Whats the brand and where is it made?

    Well my Kingston 4gb is made from Taiwan and I'm pretty sure it's a fake because every time I put time in my Acekard and try to load up a game it bricks my Acekard. But your card is a sandisk so I dont know about sandisk's so wait till an expert comes on here and well see.

    Away from you.
    Well I'm no expert on this, but what I can suggest is to run the latest AKAIO (1.8.1)

    AKAIO 1.8.x has tighter security measures, so if you do happen to have one of the rebranded Acekards that were designed by Acekard and then sold to other manufacturers, it should block it.

    Otherwise, I'm asking you to post pictures of your Sandisk.

    Try the latest AKAIO, if your Acekard is fake, you will get a message like "It may not be a genuine Acekard. Please contact your vendor" and both screen are red

    I already tried the latest akaio ( 1.8.1 )
    When I power on the dsl, I see the acekard logo, I press A, I see loading, then it just stays black.
    When I use the official firmware I can get into the menu.
    I also tried putting the sd card of the working acekard into the non working one and it also just gives the black screen.
