    Hey guys, just got my Acekard 2i up and running, and it won't veiw folders. When I put the actual ROM on the root, it plays just fine. Is my microSD card not set up correctly or what?

    Check that the folders are not invisible on your computer. Also open your globalsettings.ini and check the first line:"hiddenFileNames=" Make sure your folder name is not in that list.

    That would be difficult if he didn't have AKAIO or Official on it wouldn't it?

    If you didn't in the first place, format your MicroSD card with the Panasonic SD Formatter. If the problem persists, post a screenshot of the root directory of you MicroSD card.

    AKAIO has no problems loading ROMS when they are in sub-directories, however some homebrew need to be in the root directory for them to run.

    You're a n00b, so i'm going to say it. You are pressing the (A) button in AKAIO to open the folders aren't you?

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Yes I am using AKAIO, and I see no folders to press "A" on. I'll attempt to format the card, but does anyone have any other reason to this?

    After formatting try downloading this file and extracting it to the root directory of your MicroSD card. Double click on "makecat2.bat" and it'll create a few directories for you. It's what I do on mine, and AKAIO sees those no problem.

    Out of curiosity - what were the names of the folders that never showed up on the Acekard ??
    Were they placed in the __ak (or __aio) folder by any chance ??
