I recently purchased an Acekard 2i, and the first game downloaded for it was Phoenix Wright. So I played for awhile, then saved (legitimately, from the game), and now the game won't load past the white screen.

Is this because it's just a bad ROM or something?

no-intro and advanscene have complete databases allowing you to check the CRCs of your roms, if you think they might be bad. If your rom's CRC match their databases, your rom is good. Also, be sure to use the latest AKAIO.

Most simple way, if you don't have a dedicated checker, is to compress the rom in Winrar or Winzip (or something similar) and check under the CRC column. Then, compare with the rom entry on advanscene or no-intro's website. No-intro is better, as they are practically anal about having the purest form of the rom listed.

I'm guessing this is allowed, as they are not rom sites:

http://www.advanscene.com/

http://www.no-intro.org/ (check the dat-o-matic)

Maybe a clone? But try some troubleshooting first (reformatting the microsd with Panasonic SD formatter, or try a different microsd altogether). Good luck!
