    I have a DSTT and Kingston 2GB MicroSD, I currently am on firmware versions 1.10 but have also tried version 1.09.

    Every game I have tried has worked flawlessly except for more than half of the titles do not work with Download and Play. They work fine as a host or client, just not with Download and Play. I even tried some of the ones from the DSTT review that passed and but I had no such luck. When they do not work they get the dreaded communication error after the download finishes before the game launches on the other DS.

    Games that are not working:
    42 All Time Classics
    Mario Kart DS
    New Super Mario Bros.
    Super Mario 64 DS
    Super Monkey Ball - Touch & Roll
    Need for Speed Carbon

    Games that are working:
    Brain Age 1 and 2
    Cooking Moma
    Elite Beat Agents
    Meteos
    Zoo Keeper
    Zelda Phantom Hour Glass

    All games seem to work fine in multiplayer if not using download and play. So far I have reformatted the card changed firmware versions, reloaded the games on to the card. We own a DS and 2 DSLs so I have tried various combos in setting up the games for Download and Play. If I use a geuine ROM cart then Downlaod and Play works fine.

    I guess the point of this thread is to ask for advice and also if anybody else is able to get Downlaod and Play to work with the games that are not working for me. Since some of the games were reported as working in the review, it makes me think it is a problem specific to me.

    Did you trim the roms?

    Maybe the trimmer you're using it causing it because I know that all my games work w/ download play
