    Formatting your SD will do absolutely nothing if you can't even see the cart. Try holding it in with your finger halfway to what you would if you tried to make it click and see if it registers. That is the problem mine had when I bought it.

    sounds like a contact issue
    Edit: i really do need to get a list together for explaining where the contacts aren't connecting by the different errors (or not showing up in the ds menu) you get

    also my picture sucks

    I've Tried The Paper Trick And It Works Half The Time.I've Read Around GBATemp And It Seems That This Is Normal For Some People With Supercard Dstwo's Too.Something Else I Noticed Is That If I Try To Play My Supercard Dstwo The Next Day It Works For A Minimal Time And Randomly Freezes.So I'm Wondering If It's A Contact Issue...Someone Please Help [​IMG]

    For the freeze problem, try the paper trick, but with the micro sd slot of the DSTWO.
    My friend had a problem with his DSTTI where he couldnt boot it 3.9 quarters of the time,
    so I just paper tricked the micro sd slot. Maybe the micro sd is losing contact. Also
    maybe your trying really new games and AP is freezing it up (but that shouldnt be a problem really with DSTWO).

    Maybe, you should try to replace the casing of the SCDS2. Maybe with a R4DS one, or a Acekard one, one that fits... I don´t know if its possible to set a SCDS2 PCB in an other case, but you could try it. Remember to put it in a case, that has those plastic separators to align the contacts better, just like this:

    See this first one has all the teeth and see, the last one has just some teeth. maybe it helps??

    it should still read. My ds had that same issue and my R4 has scratch marks on the contacts. It still works fine though. (I swear I did not upgrade to SCDS2 because of those scratch marks)
