    Hello, I just updated two AK2is using the 1.4 update. One has worked fine and now plays on the DSi. With the other it can't be found as a inserted card on the DSi or DS. Is there anything I can do? Thanks.

    Hmm... Helpful.

    You can try re-flash it (this is what ifish said, but I doubt you could understand it at all). Since it doesn't start up, you will need a DS or a DS Lite, another working flashcart (your working Acekard is fine) and the multi-flasher.

    If you only have a DSi, and can't find or borrow a DS or DS Lite, there's not much you can do.

    Yep, have a DS and DSi. One working card.

    SOooo... put in the working card into DS, take it out and put in the non-working one, reflash?

    that place
    Ok, so what I can see other members saying is:

    1. Run the updater on the DS lite using the working AceKard.
    2. When it asks you to re-insert the card, instead put the broken one in.
    3. Flash the card normally.
