    anyone else having trouble to get out the acekard from the 3ds slot. everytime i try to push down on it, it doesn't spring back up on the first few tries. not sure if my cart is deformed or anything but the regular 3ds games has no problems

    I don't have that problem, but makes sense that you could. DS slot sizes all differ a bit... I think. Regardless, I don't think it's a problem

    Are you pushing down hard enough?
    Does it do the same with with DS Games?

    dont have any ds games to try with lol, at first i thought it was cause i peeled the sticked on the back of the acekard to verify if it's legit and maybe thought that was causing friction, but i rubbed it down to make sure it's all gone

    I had this problem once. Just try pushing it till it will release back up. Everyone knows that Acekard 2i have bad case design so next time you put Acekard 2i in your 3DS or DSi/XL, make your own papercard trick that can be found on the forum somewhere so when it get stuck you can pull the paper to get the Acekard 2i out. Please note it's best to make a hard plastic instead of paper because paper can easily rip off.

    newer acekard 2i batches has somewhat of a bulge on the middle (you can probably feel it), causing it to get stuck in the slot. This is also know to cause some contact issues. Doing the paper trick will help, although I never tested.

    Hi,

    Is this a big issue, i was about to order a Acekard for my 3ds but after reading this i'm not so sure. I don't want to work with paper or anything to ensure the card works correctly.
    Maby i should buy the R4i gold 3ds?

    Accekard works, it's not a big issue at all, the card comes out of the slot you just have to push down on it 1-2 more times is all. I'd definitely get Acekard over R4i gold 3ds.

    I have the exact problem as the OP, it's just flaky it seems. Real 3DS and DS games do work fine however.

    The only method I found to always get the AK2i out on the first try is to VERY quickly and forcibly push down on it, do NOT be slow. That usually causes it to eject for some reason.

    I noticed the same problem, what seemed to work (and it sounds stupid but it does work), push down onto the cart around where the SD card goes, it should just pop out like a normal game

    Used to happen, but I think it's fixed now..
    I don't know when it started working better, but I'd assume it was when I took off the anti-clone sticker.

    Had my 3DS since christmas and have had no problems with it in my 3DS. Same goes for my DSTWO, but not for my R4i Gold 3DS.

    I peeled the corner to verify it and the sticker got a bit jammed so I peeled off the whole sticker only to find that it had left sticky stuff on the front. For a while, it used to get stuck in my 3DS but now, it's fine (except for the fact that I LOST IT!!!!!! ARGHHHH! RAGE! RAGE, QUIT!)

    This. I have an Acekard like yours, and I've been pushing down near the SD slot. Works like a charm.

    If anything, that'll make it break faster.
