    I just got my DSTWO an hour ago and I've been trying to get it to work.

    First I updated it to the latest firmware. I put the file on my R4, swapped in the DSTWO, pressed B and then updated. It detected it at that point, but not when I boot up my DS Lite with it inside.

    I've tried 2 microSD cards, formatted both with panasonic sd formatter. I tried following the beginner setup guide and I put the latest EOS in the root of SD.

    What do I do? :unsure:

    EDIT: It did show up once on the 3DS as "Alex Stormrider", but then it gave me an error.

    Sounds like a contact issue, try the method from this thread http://gbatemp.net/threads/solving-acekard-contact-issues.231412/

    The DSTWO doesn't normally have contact issues. You have have been unlucky enough to get one from the faulty batch that was produced not too long ago.
    In that case I don't think there's a fix and your best bet is to RMA it and get a replacement.

    Sigh, I bought from realhotstuff USA so it would arrive faster. And now I must wait more days for another one. :angry:
    I just sent in an RMA, thanks.

    It's been 2 days and they have NOT contacted me back about the RMA. Now I just want a refund. :angry:
