    I just bought an Acekard 2i, but when I stick it in my DS lite, the DS doesn't detect it at all. It says there is no DS card inserted. I tried the paper trick and I tried cleaning the contacts with rubbing alcohol; neither worked. Is there anything else I can do, or is my card defective?

    I tried again and again, no dice. My other DS games work every time, but the Acekard fails every time. Looks like I have to return it.

    Just wait a little. Maybe someone will give you a better advice.
    EDIT: I also have a ds lite and I'm using an Acekard 2i and from time to time I have your problem. And what I do: I blow in the cart slot and I put out and in my micro sd card. But you've probably done that many times.

    I can try it on my friend's DS lite on Monday. But if it doesn't work on mine what's the point...

    Maybe it could be poor contact issue. Blow into the Ds Card Slot and keep trying...

    If the card doesn't work in your DS, then its your DS that's not picking it up. The card itself is fine.

    Where did you get it? You sure it's not a fake?

    I don't know if i'm right but if the ds lite can read original cartridges and can't read the acekard my best guess is that the acekard is in fact brick you can try to flash the card whith anoter one(any card like R4 or some other card) use the ak2iupdate14new.rar or something like this works for me in a dificult time

    ps: sorry for the bad english but i'm brazilian dude.

    Maybe a certain batch/es of DS's aren't compatible on Acekard2i because I have the same problem as yours but on my DS PHAT. I knew that my Acekard2i was the problem because my R4 is perfectly working on it. I thought it was just a defective one but before asking for a refund to the seller I tried using it on my DSi XL and oddly, it's works flawlessly. [​IMG]

    I bought mine from realhotstuff.com. There's no square window on the front, so I'm pretty sure it's legit. I'll try my friends DS lite tomorrow, and if it works, then I don't know what to do... I'm actually hoping it's just defective.

    I own a polar white DS lite, if that matters.
