Im running an acekard 2i on a ds lite and i keep getting the system file missing message. Just got my ak2i after my ak2 stopped working b/c it just showed loading screen. I have all the firmware, ive tried akaio as well as the firstparty one. Could it be my sd card?

First of all, why is this under Game Boy Advance? Anyway, make sure you install the firmware correctly(i.e. put everything in the correct place)

ya i dont know how i got to gba topic, must have not been paying attention. i have the .nds and menu folder on the root of the sd, and the card is from realhotstuff which everyone claims is always authentic. the card looks authentic as well. would a new micro sd be logical?

I've just tried a little experiment with My AK2i (sorry only got a DSi but I guess it's the same thing)

> Tried with the microSD card removed - All i get is 'Loading..' in blue
> Tried Micrso SD card but WITHOUT the 'akmenu4.nds' file - & I get blue 'System File is missing'
> Tried MicroSD card with akmenu4.nds but WITHOUT the '_aio' folder - Blue 'Loading...', quick white screen flash then 2 black screens

From this I'm guessing the problem lies with the akmenu4.nds file (or it could be fake)

Try using AKAIO 1.5 to see if it'll work - if it does select [start] > 'Help' & compare the HW number shown with the list on the AKAIO forum
That may point to whether it's a fake or not

    Fuck those things, six self.checkouts in parallel are slower than one manned register, and they have to have someone stand next to them to help people and validate age if you're buying beer, and unlock the machine when it gets into the MYSTERY OBJECT IN THE BAGGING AREA OH GOD HELP, HELP, CALL FOR HELP mode.

    We have a separate scale in the produce aisle, you do all the fiddly stuff there and get a barcode sticker that you scan on the self-checkout.
