    what FW is on the 3ds and what FW is on the dstwo


    you need a system that the card is working on to run the updated

    old ds or dslite or dsi

    Formatting the DS won't downgrade the 3DS's firmware version (there's no way released to downgrade it, in fact).

    Check the 3DS's system settings to see which version it is. If you or somebody else updated it to 4.4x, you're screwed since there's no Acekard update for it, and there may not be one for a while.

    Doesn't the Supercard DSTwo have a option to update it by simply having it in the 3(DS) unit, with the update on the MicroSD Card? Not sure if he meant he formatted the SD card, or the Micro SD card.

    Sounds like either your MicroSD or the reader you're using to connect it to the computer is overheating. This is very common with the cheap readers many flash carts come with, and we recommend ditching them and using a store-bought one (if that's the case).

    One's inner self
    sounds like there might be an issue with the micro SD card
    when you formatted it earlyier did you use the Panasonic SD formatter?
    Windows Format doesnt usually end well with SD cards

    here a download for the program

    info about why is here
