    The other day my cousin was using my acekard 2i when he changed some of the settings and chose a random file as a loader so my acekard 2i wouldnt load propperly so i decided to download the new firmware and see if that would cure my problem, but it just made it worse. Now whenever i run my acekard it says System File Missing. So now i have a useless acekard 2i that wont even work! [​IMG] Plz help!!!

    'System File Missing' normally means akmenu4.nds is missing from the MicroSD card's root directory.

    BACK UP: All of your ROMs/Homebrews & SAV files

    Use SD Association Formatter 3.0 (formerly known as Panasonic SD Formatter) to format your microSD. Be careful that you format the correct drive.
    The default format settings should be fine regardless of what microSD card it is.

    After format, decompress the latest AKAIO which is currently AKAIO 1.6 RC2. You may have to download WinRAR from RARLAB in order to "unzip" this archive. Copy the contents of the archive to the freshly formatted MicroSD. After this the contents of your MicroSD will be:

    Folder - __aio
    File - ak4menu.nds
    File - LoaderChangelog.txt
    File - readme_AKAIO.txt

    ------
    You can delete the two .txt files (they look like text documents, and your system may not be configured to show the .txt file extension once they're extracted).

    ------
    You can then restore your backed up ROMs/Homebrew & SAV files to the MicroSD. Make sure all the .SAV files are in the same directory as the corresponding ROM. You can copy all of them to root (topmost directory) or organize them in folders if you wish.

    ------
    Hope this helps. Please do not skip the backing up part. Last time I gave advice to someone about this kind of thing he formatted before backing up despite my advice to do the opposite and it was very funnysad.
