    I have an acekard 2i with akaio 1.7 and i am having problems with these 2 games..

    Zelda glitches on the intro part where you fall into the whirlpool, the sound is also messed up.

    and dq 9 as soon as I load it goes to a white screen and stays there.

    I have a 4 gb sandisk sd which is class 2 and my dsi is ver 1.2.

    Could the sd card be the problem?

    Any help is appreciated!

    1) Back up your saves and games

    2) Download & install the SD Formatter. Format your MicroSD with it. Set it to FULL Erase ON and Format Size Adjustment OFF.

    3) Download AKAIO 1.7.1 fresh. Extract & copy the "__aio" folder & "akmenu4.nds" to the root of the SD card.

    4) Go here and download the updated loaders. Extract the file and copy the ak2loader.nds to SD:\__aio\loaders, overwriting the existing file.

    5) Create a "Games" folder and place you games & saves in there. Make sure your save files have the extension *.sav in lowercase.

    Yes, the SD card could be a problem, the reason I say so is b/c
    DQ IX, (even with AP) manages to load up the basic introduction before crashing once you start the game.

    If you don't mind me asking where/how did you acquire the memory card? I, myself am guilty of purchasing a high capacity
    fake memory card in the last few months. The main problems are read/write corruption, the dead give away was that my
    card wouldn't save :-/

    If your card is a bad-batch/fakes then not even the micro-SD formatted will do it much justice (though it does help w/ AKAIO 1.7)

    There's always a possibility that it's the card, but if you got DQ IX working with the Xenom release then it really shouldn't be the card. I'd say that the problem with Phantom Hourglass is more a bad rom-dump release, or it could be flash-card related; there are a lot of variables to consider.

    Even asking for a PM of a link to a ROM is against forum rules. How about buying that game and dumping it yourself. There are many threads on how to do this.

    I'had the same problem with Zelda PH. The solution is change SD card to class 4 or more. My SD card 8GB class 2 make some glitches in some games as Castevania portrait or crash as Zelda PH. I took the SD class 4 from my smartphone and everything works well now: no lags or glitches and no crashes.

    Good luck.
