    Hey guys, I have a Supercard Lite Rumble that a friend brought me back from Hong Kong. This was over a year ago and I've never upgraded the firmware to this date. I've tried putting the latest upgrade .BIN file (both the English and the Chinese versions) on the memory card, but no .BIN file shows up when I boot up my DS. Any ideas?

    Also, I don't know what version of card is because when I hold L+R and press A a few times when the DS boots, I just get blank white screens.

    With the Supercard Rumble, you need a Rumble-specific firmware update, which will come in *.scu format, not *.bin.

    Do I need to do incremental upgrades then? And also, how do I find out what version I'm using currently?

    I don't really know why you're getting white screens on the self-test, but that's the only way I know of to check the current firmware. If you've never upgraded the firmware, my guess is that you have either 1.63 or 1.7.

    I'd suggest installing 1.7, then from there you can jump straight to 1.85 or whatever the latest version is.
