Got my toptoy earlier today however it doesn't want to work.

I've put the latest firmware on a Kingston 2GB microSD card along with a few games, put the microsd inside of the Toptoy. Then the toptoy in the DS and switch it on, one of two things happen:

1) DS loads to main screen and says unable to find anything in the DS slot.
2) Health and Safety message starts to appear, but the DS freezes halfway through.

I've managed to get it to boot up twice, which was earlier before I had to head out. I was having the same problems before then, then switched it on and it decided to boot up. Restarted and it booted again! Got back and it hasn't been working since

Tried everything I can think of, removing everything from the MicroSD card then formatting it, downloading the Firmware again however none of it appears to work.

Any help would be GREATLY appreiciated.

Thanks in advance.

Tried sticking in a bit of paper to make the contact better, still nothing.

Also have tried multiple firmwares, unfortunatly I don't have any more microSD cards.

Even without a MicroSD in the slot it should boot to a screen complaining about it not being there.

The DSTT must be faulty, you'll have to send it back to the seller for replacement

That's what I thought Psyfira, Sent DealExtreme a message so I guess I await a response.

Going to be about 2-3 weeks before I get a replacement =/

I ordered mine on the 28th of December and got it today. Did yours come with a rumble pack? I just got the basic one, cost £12.30 or something I believe,!

Hi there

Which card did you 'bend a bit' I have just received my NDSTT this morning formatted the Micro SD downloaded the software and it will not boot, even without the microsd inserted I just get very dull ( brightness) health and safety screen and nothing else........ Very disappointed, waited ages for this from Dealextreme :'(

1st make sure you have your menu files on root of memory card, and before you put your menu files on make sure you format the memory card, to preferably fat32

Just spent 10 min trying to get my TTDS to work. Just wasnt recognised in any way what so ever. SO gave it a slight flex (bend) and recognised immediately. Bend it length ways so that the label is on the outside... very slight pressure required.

Hi - can someone give a better description of the bending technique?
I did read above, but didn't get it....

For example, do you hold the card with the label away from you but upright; then bend the card in half along an imaginary line running centrally from top to bottom. Would this be towards or away from you?

Thanks,
Damon
