    sry to bother u people again but im having the same problem i had before: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=237...p;#entry2940139
    i did the things you guys said and it worked-- for a short while. it just stopped working again and said menu. i found out that if i plug my micro sd ( kingston 4gb) into the computer and view it, then take it out and put it into the dstt. it works for about 2 times turning it on. ( what i mean is after viewing on the computer, i put in and play like normal for 1 time, then the next time it will also work, but not the third time). i think i might have formatted it incorrectly, so im asking if i should do anything with the options button on the formatter? and it is the SDformatter.exe right? I will be very grateful to anyone who replies. Thanks everyone. oh and please make it very clear and step by step because im a terrible person at understanding things, which may also be why the dstt isnt working

    maybe you should shim your card (use paper to make it contact better)? I have to do it with mine.

    the fault is maybe in the SD slot itself..

    well you can repair by yourself, but you need to get a spare sd card slots (prefer not spring loaded.) .. and also, soldering skills.

    Non spring loaded DSTT's are lasted more longer than any other spring loaded carts.

    shimming it doesnt work. and dnniwa485 could u explain more on that?
    Update: i tried putting my ttds on my computer and taking it out it worked for a few times like i said
    then after a while, when i tried to play a game, it said something like ttmenu.sys fail please reset system or something like that. then i turned it off then turned it on again, but it said menu? again.

    i think the info on the card got corrupted. Back up, format, re-copy (use ttds stuff from archives), use the paper when putting card back into ttds.
