    so.... I'm in quite a bind here :P. I havent posted here in quite some time about christmas last year when i set this up :). I would first like to say my Supercard DStwo experience for DS lite has been OK :P. It's a great card and it played everything i threw at it with ease :P

    OK, so on to the problem: DS lite not reading/detecting Supercard DStwo


    • Ive tried other games and the DS lite can read/play em with ease.
    • The DStwo card has been working for about a year almost.
    • I've Cleaned it multple times with electrical contact cleaner and rubbing alcohol.
    • I've Cleaned the DS lite multiple times with electrical contact cleaner and rubbing alcohol.
    • I've yet to check the Micro SD, however im sure its fine.
    • SD Card used is from Micro Center: 32GB class 10
    • It was working fine aside from every now and then freezing/card not reading... Nothing a quick blow into card slot/ rubbing alcohol couldnt fix (EDIT: until now :( )
    • I've tried the paper trick: didnt work
    • Tried taking appart the Supercard... didnt see any immediate dmg to the circuit....
    • Considering filing down the plastic separators between the supercard DStwo connector pins
    ... that's about it :/ any idea what i can do?

    EDIT: i checked the SD card for the heck of it and it seems fine all files are still there *shrug* also after plugging it in the supercard appeared on the DS' screen. Unfortunately after trying to launch it, it froze :(. Maybe the contact issue is coming from the micro SD card?

    Please do the following test:
    1, change another memory card and install dstwo kernel for test;
    2, change to another console for test, NDS,DSi, 2DS, 3DS, any of them are ok

    if still can't work, you can return the seller for repair

    1. Tried a different micro SD card. No go :(

    2. tried another DS lite and it did the same thing that's happening to me.

    3. Tried a DSi and it was still giving me contact issues.

    Not sure where the contact issues are.

    i got it from DS-flashcart.com I'm not sure if they would help me? Do you know?
