    Hey guys, I've got an Acekard RPG and a DS Lite and I put the AKAIO 1.8.9 files in the root of my SD Card but when I start up the Acekard it just says System File is Missing. The only way I can fix this is by putting the AKAIO files in the Acekard's storage memory instead of on the SD Card. Is there anyway I can put it on the SD? Thanks

    The technical/internal term for how the RPG refers to it's own NAND.

    Ooooh right, okay! Thanks guys. Also, if a game on an SD card were to be having issues (for me, clean Pokemon Black and White are still freezing/the no exp antipiracy) when it's supposed to work fine without ap, would sticking it in the NAND make it work better?

    The only thing you can stick into the NAND is the firmware/bootloader.

    NOTHING else.

    Everything else is on the SD card. The NAND is too small anyways to contain much.

    you can run games from either i don't think we ever changed that.

    NAND can hold several games. I run all my dev from RPG since i can keep it plugged into my PC while i build

    its 1GB or 8Gb.

    navigate to the nand and run the file like you would if it was the msd. you can copy between the msd/nand as well.
