    Hello,

    I have got two Acekard 2i from DX. They both work on a DS lite (I haven't tested DSi yet). They both show the built version HW: 81 (I suggest these are the older ones?), but one card has a spring load microSD slot and the other has no spring load. Does this mean one card is not real or does the acekard team produce cartridges of different architecture?

    All AK2i should have spring loaded slots. I have never seen one that doesn't. It's probably broken.

    HW:44 is the older version and 81 is newer. Higher the number, the newer it is.

    I got a HW 81 version from gamebygame and it is not spring loaded either, so it is either broken like said above or the acekard team revised the newer models to get rid of the spring loader.

    The newer batch has no spring loaded slot. The old batch did though.

    I believe only newer hw 81 cards do not have the spring loader, a picture in the news section shows an acekard 2i without a spring loader or it seems it is not in it, looks like the one I received.

    Hmm... didn't know there were 2 batches of HW:81. If they took out the spring they should have revised the version number [​IMG]

    my acekard 2i is HW81 with black PCB whatever you call the motherboard and is spring loaded. I hate that fucking acekard 2i. the one on DSTT is easier to press
