    It seems that all the games i want to play wont save and its driving me insane. im using the 1.17a01 firmware.

    The games that refuse to save are
    -Pokemon Platinum (U)
    -Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon (U) [about to try the european version]
    -Animal Crossing Wild World 1.1
    -The World Ends With You

    and im sure there will be more =P

    try getting an older kernal like v1.16. I used to have a fake DSTT and v1.14 worked like a charm, but I don't remeber I got it...

    Not really. You don't know that 1.17a01 firmware is the latest update from some hackers. There is a new
    kernel 1.18.

    But I don't think so because those games are pretty old and none require savlib except for Platinum. Here are some possible ways:

    1.SD card, format it.
    2.Download the games from somewhere else.
    3.Get a new reader.
    4.Return the SD card altogether and replace it.

    And exactly what happens? Be a bit more specific.

    How To Troubleshoot Your Flashcart:

    STEP 1: Make sure you're not using the card reader that comes with the flashcart. Buy your own.
    STEP 2: Check your microSD card for smudges on the contacts. Clean with a QTIP. You can add a bit of alcohol onto the QTIP, if wanted.
    STEP 3: Check your Flashcart for any abrasions or smudges on the contacts. Clean with a QTIP. You can add a bit of alcohol onto the QTIP, if wanted.
    STEP 4: Possibly, your Flashcart is not making perfect contact the DS. Try the "Paper Shim Trick" to close the gap and make the space tighter.
    STEP 5: Copy all of your games and saves off your microsd card to your computer (BACKUP). Download the latest "Panasonic SD Formatter" and do a full format with this application. Install the latest firmware again from a different/reliable site. Then add on your games and saves to the newly formatted card.
    STEP 6: Try another DS. If possible.
    STEP 7: Possibly the "GAMES" you have are faulty. You know what to do here...
    STEP 8: If all else fails, get a new Flashcart and/or MicroSD Card.
