    I have experienced a minor bug with my DSTT card.

    Sometimes when i copy some games to the card, all the games freeze when i try to load them, then i have to format my card and then again copy my OS to my microcard,after that everything is fine, i experienced it a coupe of time.

    Anyone else tried it, and anyone have an idea whats causing it?

    I didn't say microSD card, I said microSD reader. The thing you put your microSD card into in order to connect it to your PC. Are you using the one that comes with the DSTT?

    I think Bri was talking about how you transfer the games on to the MicroSD, not what kind of microSD. Are you using the reader (Looks kind of like this) that came with the DSTT, because it normally doesn't work too well. You should just use the adapter which comes with the micro SD so it can fit in to a normal sized SD slot.

    or just get a better reader from a trusted company like kingston or sandisk. i bought a kingston multicard reader that will read everything from the xd, sd, and all the hc stuff....works fast and flawless, no issues for any of my devices so far.

    @ds4ever: Are you experiencing this error only when you try to launch a game, or before the menu is done loading (I can't tell from your picture)? If you get the error when launching a game, are you putting your games in a "games" folder and do you have plenty of free space on your microSD for save files?

    @Tanas: Yeah, the one that comes with the DSTT is not a particularly good card reader, although a lot of people never experience problems with theirs. The good news is that there are plenty of decent readers available and they're not expensive.

    Well, yes you need to put your .nds and .sav files in a folder, but I doubt that's your problem. There is a limit to the number of files that can be on the root of your microSD, so if you don't put your games in a "games" folder, it will crash when you get too many. But in your case if you only have one game, that's probably not it.

    Have you tried reformatting your microSD card (use FAT16 if it's 2GB or under, otherwise FAT32)? Have you tried it with another microSD card to see if maybe your microSD card is the problem?

    Yes with others micro SD cards that work fine with the M3 DS Real!
    I'm thinking that is a faulty card! :-(

    Are you saying that the DSTT doesn't work with other microSD cards or it does? Does your M3 DS Real work with all of the microSD cards that you've tried with the DSTT (i.e. all fail on the DSTT but all work on the M3)?

    If it doesn't work with multiple microSD cards, and you've tried putting your games into a "games" folder, you may have a bad DSTT (it may not be making proper contact with the NDS). If you've ruled out other possible factors, you should exchange it for a new one.

    That's correct!

    I'm sure now that is a faulty DSTT! :-(
    Thank you for your help!

    Yeah, I think I agree with you! Sorry, ds4ever. Unfortunately, there is a small percentage of DSTT's that have contact problems. If you can't exchange it there are some possible solutions you could try, but if you can exchange it for a new one I would highly recommend you do so.
