    Try the paper trick, but add something thicker. It's obviously a connection issue. If it still doesn't work, either get a refund, or a new one. Though, I'm not sure if you'll be able to get a refund...

    No, seriously. Sometimes the contacts on the Acekards can become slightly oxidized. There may be "clean" streaks on your flashcart that coincide with one of your hardware devices' tangs, but not the other. Try taking a pencil eraser to the contacts to clean them up.

    Pull the cart out of the slot slightly, it's known to work on the DSi XL.

    I don't recommend eraser, as it leave grease. If you want to clean contact, use 91% rubbing alcohol.
