    I didn't think this should go in the Flash Cart forums since this is not an error with a flash cart, it's and error with ARDSi/DLDi Patching.

    On to my question.

    I'm new to the NDS modding/homebrew scene, so this question might be fairly obvious. I have a DS Light and I just got an Action Replay DSi and a 4 GB MicroSDHC memory card. I'm trying to start the Colors! homebrew via my MicroSD that I DLDi patched on my computer, and I get this error:

    Code:
    "Error 101: FAT could not be initialized
    The file system could not beÂÂinitialized on this flash card.
    
    -- Check that your flash card is using the latest system software available on the flash card manufacturer's website. 
    
    -- Check that Colors.nds have been properly DLDI patched for your flash card."
    And some details about Colors! Support.

    I researched this and all I found is that you should use a 2 GB Micro SD, not anything bigger, for DLDi patching.

    Is there any way around this? I can't just go back and exchange this card, but I am willing to do a lot (I don't have money though) to get this to work. I don't really care about ROMs, just homebrew.

    In short, my question is:
    Is there an alternate way to use homebrew on an ARDSi aside from DLDi patching?
    OR
    How can I DLDi patch without needing a 2 GB MicroSD?
    OR
    How can I fix the FAT error while still using a 4 GB?

    Help would be EXTREMELY appreciated, especially since I am kind of out of options. Please don't suggest buying a flash card, because as I stated I:
    A) Don't have money.
    B) (Which I didn't state) Have no method of paying online and/or getting funds onto PayPal or a credit card.

    Thanks,
    unDead

    You should try loading it through HBMenu...?

    Yeah, that's what came with Colors!, I tried the .nds file and the HBMenu. Also, Moonshell is not working. It says it cant find the 'moonshel' folder when it is clearly on the memory stick. [​IMG]

    For Moonshell...it should be a "moonshl" folder. You could try running Colors in the root of your microSD, but I highly doubt it will do anything. Apart from what you have already done, I can't think of any way to make it work with what you have.

    Sorry, yeah I meant moonshl. I did try Colors! at the root but it didn't work. I might not have a choice, I think I just can't use this memory stick for homebrew.

    ARDSi DLDI has several issues. You should consider another device.
