Hi guys. I purchased an Acekard 2i from Zhuzhu China and it arrived today. I used the test on the Acekard website and it is a real card. I then followed the guide here using the official files but when I click on the Acekard icon I receive the 'System File is Missing' error. I have tried this with a Kingston 4GB Micro SDHC card and a Kingston 8GB Micro SDHC card using the format tool from the guide.

Any suggestions? I was really looking forward to trying this new card out.

Many thanks.

Usually a System File Is Missing error means either the AKAIO install went bad, or your SD card is wonky.

Get AKAIO 1.8.6a and reformat using the Panasonic tool. The fact that you get the System File message means that the cart itself is fine so it's more to do with the GUI not loading.

I have tried this 4 times (and once more just now) and I still receive the error message.

I can't access the menu to update the firmware because when I click on the Acekard icon I receive the 'System File is Missing' error.

Yeah that's about right.... Just had to ask.

I suppose the only other thing is I assume you're downloading the file from filetrip? If you're using winrar do a Test on the archive to ensure everything is good.

One other thing might be to try the really really old Acekard official firmware. It sucks but would eliminate a possibility

http://www.acekard.com/download.php

Get the link "OLD Version 4.23" and see if that works.

I get that error sometimes for no reason to be honest.
All I do is blow into my cartridge and the DS.

Even after re-formating and changing cluster size I still get that error ocasionally.

Tried 4.23 and it gave the same error. Also tried blowing on everything and it has not helped. Ran WinRAR tests and it found no errors.

Do you guys think the Micro SD Card slot on my Acekard is faulty?

Gambia, The
of course you should try at least one other micro sd card.

use one from your mobile phone or digicam.

you dont even have to delete the stuff that is on the microsd. just copy the folder and nds file on the sd card and put everything in your DS.

I presume the AK2i is flashed, is it?

What icon shows up when you put it in the DSi, Danny Phantom of stormbreaker? Is your dsi 1.4 or 1.4.1?

I decided to format the card using Windows' built in format option and not SDFormatter and it now works fine. Strange! Thanks for all the help & advice guys.
