    I have a DSTT with v1.15 on it. It has a Kingston 2GB microsd card. My DS roms won't load 90% of the time. Though, I can run homebrew apps and games. Any ideas on what's wrong? It will freeze on the loading screen for the game.

    There are a lot of things that could be wrong. Your ROMs could be bad (corrupt or incorrectly trimmed). There might be something wrong with your firmware. You might even have a bad DSTT.

    So do your ROMs load sometimes but the same ones won't load other times, or are you unable to run any ROM? Or is it certain ones that run and certain ones that don't?

    The games use to work fine, but now none of them work. I just redownloaded v1.15 and put it on the cart but nothing. I even reformatted the card, but it still wont work.

    Sweet, it worked. It loads slowly now, but at least it's working.

    I have the same microSD card you do, and I format it using FAT16 because it's much faster. You might try the Panasonic formatter, which is supposed to format it more correctly than Windows does, which might solve your problems.
