    I have a DSTwo Plus with the latest firmware on it (I just bought it) from the Supercard website. v1.14.

    I have a DSi with v.1.4.
    - The DSTwo+ works.

    I also have a DSi XL with 1.4.5.
    - The DSTwo+ does not work. It is detected as the correct game, but when I launch it, I get the ever-known "An error has occurred" and tells me to turn off the DS.

    I had done what I thought was a lot of reading and comparing before I bought the DSTwo+. It's my understanding that it is compatible with 1.4.5. Did I get the wrong impression during my research, or do I need to do something else?

    I thought it was working... because it loaded once. But not after power cycling.

    I'm not sure how to tackle this. It's quite weird.

    What I did before:
    - Unzipped the 1.4.5 patch. It placed itself into a _dstwo folder.
    - I wasn't sure what to do with it, so I merely placed it in the root of the SD card named _dstwo 2.
    - The DSTwo+ was detected and launched.
    Then it was rebooted and it just errors out now.

    What I've done:
    - Slow reformat with Panasonic's SDFormatter utility.
    - Formatted the DSi system software
    - Copied the _dstwo system folder by itself. No improvement.
    - Copied the _dstwo 2 folder as before. No improvement.
    - I realized the files system1.dat and system11.dat in the patch are in the _dstwo folder, so I copied patched ones over the originals. No improvement.

    I'm at a loss. I seem to have replicated everything the way it was when it worked once before power cycling the DSi.

    Suggestions would be great. :)

    You can try to update the dstwo with the console that it works on. If it still doesn't work it should be a contact issue.

    Did you manage to fix it? I had the DSTwo+ working fine, then I updated the DSi XL to 1.4.5u, and it wont work anymore.
    Same thing, it detects the flashcard but when I try to launch it, "An error has occured."

    Does anyone have a solution?

    If it says an error has occurred, it's not properly updated. Find another console thst runs it and update it.

    You can update the DSTWO while it's blocked.

    Indeed.
    @Merlow
    To do that you'll need to rename "dstwoupdate.dat" to "dstwoupdateb.dat"
    Then launch the card and leave it on the "an error has occurred" screen for a few minutes, give it 10 minutes just to be sure. The cart will update in the background.
