    i've got a problem with my dstt card, today i was playing on my ttds and i wanted to add some games to it.
    i went to my computer and stuck the MicroSD in the SD Adapter and i putted some games and some music on it, it worked perfectly.
    but i forgot a game and i stuck it in again. but the computer didn't react!
    i stucked it in the dstt card in my ds, and when he was loading menu, he kept loading, i waited 45 minutes but nothing happend. [​IMG]
    i tried to format it but i couldn't, cause my computer can't recognize the card, it keeps saying 'Please insert a disk into Removable Disk (I:).
    sometimes it says 'Format it?' i than click yes and than it says it can't be format.[​IMG]

    can anyone help me with this, without buying a new ttds/microSD/cardreader only when there is no option left.

    I'm guesssing the memory card itself broke.

    If it was a bad adapter, why doesn't it work on his DSTT anymore?

    Happened to me. Try out Panasonic Formater. If that won't work its broken.

    Bad adapters can corrupt memory cards.

    Okay, first you posted in the wrong section. Then, in order to test if it is really broken, just use it somewhere else like a camera or cellphone. If you don't have one, then try this. The adapter can sometimes corrupt memory cards. You should buy a new one since the ones with the flashcarts are normally very bad. Next, try doing it a couple more times. Try inserting it some more. Then, check if the SD is clean. If all else fails, just get a new SD card.

    Chill out, KingdomBlade.. I wasn't trying to be smart, I was asking a legit question. I can't help it if you know more than me so don't be hostile man.

    I respect what you've done and the help you've contributed a great deal. But really, why are you getting all mad at me? So I'm a noob, don't hate me because of that.

    Okay, okay. So I'm guessing someone should move this thread.

    Oh that happened to me, you cant really do anything except buying a new MicroSD card. Also try safely removing instead of just taking the adapter out, people say it damages it until it cant be used.

    Try these steps I compiled maybe they can help you.

    How To Troubleshoot Your Flashcart:

    STEP 1: Make sure you're not using the card reader that comes with the flashcart. Buy your own. Always use the "Add/Remove Hardware Safely" function before removing the reader.
    STEP 2: Check your microSD card for smudges on the contacts. Clean with a QTIP. You can add a bit of alcohol onto the QTIP, if wanted.
    STEP 3: Check your Flashcart for any abrasions or smudges on the contacts. Clean with a QTIP. You can add a bit of alcohol onto the QTIP, if wanted.
    STEP 4: Possibly, your Flashcart is not making perfect contact the DS. Try the "Paper Shim Trick" to close the gap and make the space tighter.
    STEP 5: Copy all of your games and saves off your microsd card to your computer (BACKUP). Download the latest "Panasonic SD Formatter" and do a full format with this application. Install the latest firmware again from a different/reliable site. Then add on your games and saves to the newly formatted card.
    STEP 6: If the latest firmware doesn't work sometimes downgraded firmwares can achieve working results. Try downgrading, if it doesn't resolve just go back up to the latest firmware again.
    STEP 7: There are times where the official firmware for your specific cart isn't up to par with the alternatives created. Try a legit alternative firmware for your flashcart. eg, (DSTT/R4 -->YSMENU), (Acekard--->AKAIO), (M3 DS Real---> Sakura) so forth..
    STEP 8: If you're using cheats maybe they are faulty. Get rid of them and get them from a reliable source.
    Or just dont put them on period.
    STEP 9: Possibly the "GAMES/ROMS" you have are faulty. Obtain ones from a new location...
    STEP 10: Try another DS. If possible.
    STEP 11: If all else fails, get a new Flashcart and/or MicroSD Card from a reputable site.

    Tell us if it works or not~ Good luck.

    It is possible to get a microSD card into a state where it cannot be formatted on a PC, even using the Panasonic formatter. You should be able to pop it into a camera or cell phone to reformat it.
