    I just got my DSTT a few days ago. I have several files, a 2G memory card, and a DSlite. Problem is that when ever I try to use DSTT it won't load several things happen(freezes almost imidiatly I turn it on, Top screen is blank bottom has white, Shows picture of the card loading, turns off as soon as I power up, blank screen) this is what happens when I power up with it in.

    Also good to know this, I dropped my DS before I had the card about 2 times and the power switch works but sticks.

    Any help is good because then I just wasted some money. [​IMG]

    Update: closest I've gotten so far now is DS thing when you turn it on then a blank screen. Also my brother told me he bought it from http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.10289

    Either its a fake DSTT cart or its defective.

    You could try fixing the flashcart using the following method:

    If its fake its possible to recover the card.
    When its defect you are kinda out of options but then you atleast tried all you could.

    First of all, have you ever gotten it to work? If not, it's possible that the microSD card is corrupt or that you don't have the firmware installed correctly.

    If it's fake, you should grab the official 1.16 firmware, but do NOT run it. Instead, immediately replace TTMENU.DAT with the one in this archive: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=4086

    The official firmware has fake-killer code that will destroy a fake, but replacing TTMENU.DAT with the one in that archive will disable the fake-killer code and it will work on your fake DSTT without harming anything.

    If you've destroyed your fake DSTT with the fake-killer firmware, you may be able to recover it using the programs in the same archive.

    Thanks! I check the flash and it was broken. So I rewrote it and now it works perfect!
