    What system are you using?
    is AKAIO and the loader up to date?

    Wait, what do you mean "poped" it?

    Make sure AKAIO and required files are needed. Did you follow this guy's steps?
    Are you using a DSi/DSL/DS/3DS?

    Try formatting the card with Panasonic SD formatter then recopy all the files onto it and try again.

    make sure you are using fresh clean copies of the files, and not previously backed up copies.

    when you say it gets stuck on the "loading" screen, you mean after you execute the launching of a ROM or Homebrew?

    The Loading screen at startup when I think it trying to load the firmware.

    if that is the case then your issue could be the all to common ak2i contact issue. for a ds phat you should have grabbed a 2.1. i've yet to have a single issue with any of my 2.1 cards, and i've abused them to hell and back.

    do you have a second msd card to test with? - try it in the ak2i
    do you have a second flash kit to test with? - try it in the dsphat with the first msd card

    here is information on the contact issue: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Solving_Acekard_2i_Contact_Issues

    I have already tryed a second MicroSd in the flash cart, and the same result and I dont have another flash cart this if the first one I ever got, other than my old supercard MiniSD.

    I found that page on the contact issue already that seems to be more related to getting the card to be reconised by the DS itself, not the sdcard or am I wrong?

    a contact issue can present itself at that point but also when you try to boot something up, while a game is running, when i game wants to save, when the ds gets moved, etc.

    anything that interrupts the contact with change the expected behavior.

    try booting up your ds phat. when you see the acekard in the firmware menu, move the ds phat around. shake it a little. hold it upside down above your head. hold it flat on its back, etc. at any point does the ak2i lose contact?

    It didnt loas contact to my best guess, I took the game out manually just to see waht would happen if it list contact and it froze. It never did that while I was shaking it around.

    it is possible then that your problem is with the microsd slot. when you insert your card do you feel the spring push down and click into place?

    Yep It clicks when i put the MicroSD in to the slot.

    oh yah before you ask I allready checked if the card is a real one and the acekard site says the code ckecks out.

    The Flashcard Fried one of my Micro sd's luckily I can send it back and get another, but this is giving me the impression that the card slot has some sorta short, or defect in it. I really don't want o plug any other cards in to it now.

    i would agree. it seems your msd slot has issues. it does happen but is not very common. you could open the shell up and see if the msd cage is solder correctly, if the msd teeth make contact, etc, but doing this will probably void the warranty. all acekard products have a 1 yr warranty. you may just want to ask your reseller for a replacement.

    Yep guess I'll have to replace it. I sent a message to store I got it from (nds-card.com). Hope they respond back promptly.

    Thanks for trying to help.

    The sell responded back, but wasn't very helpful, tell me the reformat the card and reinstall the firmware, again.. I done that over 20 times at this point, and told them that I did so.
    Will wait back on a reply

    But if I wanted to contact that other company you mentioned would I email them of PM them here?

    PM them here.

    You should write a detailed e-mail response to your reseller stating everything you tried. Then link them back to this discussion so that they can see you took the extra step to get help.
