    Hello everyone

    Yesterday i received my Acekard 2i and a DSi with a 1.3 firmware. So i tried to set everything up. I formated the Sandisk mircoSd card with the Panasonic tool and put Akaoi 1.8 on it. Then i put the Aceakard in my DSi but it wont be detected.
    I put it out and in for some time but nothing happend. I found out that there exists a contact issue. So i took some paper and prepared the card but even then it doesnt worked.

    Maybe my DSi slot could be damaged but the original games worked fine.

    Is there something else i could try to get my card to work? Or is it already fucked.

    Merry Christmas

    It's your Acekard. The best I would say is try thicker paper, try it in a different DSi or anything. Your DSi slot isn't damaged, you just got a card that doesn't connect with the contacts.

    or, you got a card that is blocked.
    Then, it won't show up in the menu too.

    does your AK2i have a hole under the sticker? It shouldn't.

    Can you put it in another DSi to see if it works?

    @ShadowSoldier I put some plastic underneath the pcb which is as thick as a bank car.

    I also tried it with a DS fat but it wont be detected not in my DSi and not in the fat ds.

    My acekard dont have a hole under the sticker.



    Why should my card be blocked? I have the 1.3 firmware.

    if the acekard doesn't work in either DS or DSi then you must assume that your card is broken, and never worked to begin with. That, or the contacts don't connect.

    are you positive that the contacts have good connectivity? Is there a way you can post a picture of your actual acekard that you own (so i can have a look at how the contacts sit on the card)?

    cheers.

    If it hasn't worked for you at all, and doesn't work in any DS systems, request a refund.
