    Hello all, first time poster here. I've owned my DSTT for a couple of months now, and have encountered a rather annoying problem just recently.

    Whenever I start my DS(from being off, not a soft reset), it will freeze sometime during startup(between the 'Health and Safety warning, and the smiling sdhc card) nine times out of ten. If I start the DS without the DSTT inserted, it loads fine. I've tried upgrading and downgrading firmware(to no effect), and I'm starting to wonder if it's a problem with my SDHC card.

    Any advice you can give me?

    It seems I have a fake DSTT, which is probably the problem. Does anyone have a link to a genuine DSTT?

    Return it to wherever you bought it from and get a real one.

    Dammit, mine just started to do that today. I thought DealExtreme fixed to problem when I got mine.

    *edit* According to one of the threads here (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=118123) mine's real, so I dunno if it's just a fluke card or something?

    i have also the same problem here with Frolic766 for two weeks was perfect but today it will freeze during startup the most of the times i will start the DS.

    I try firmwares 1.5 - 1.6, i try two sd cards and still the same.
