    Sorry to be that idiot to start a new thread whoa is me etc.

    But I just got my dstwo card in the mail today. According to the site they send them updated and all that. I got NES roms on it and was playing it and it worked fine. However I started getting the "An Error occured turn off power" message randomly. Then it works fine on restart, but then goes back to error.

    Everytime I put in the dstwo cartridge it shows up on 3ds menu, so not sure if its connectivity problems (paper fix)


    Now at times I dont even get the Error message it just goes to a black screen or works randomly.

    Also at times the 3ds wont even boot up to the menu screen if I start up the 3ds xl with the DStwo cartridge pushed in.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    3ds XL (Mario Kart 7 pre installed package) Ver 4.5.0-10U if that helps at all.

    Also I have deleted the OS and re-downloaded and still having the same problems (Not a total computer idiot, but not an expert at hacking either lol)

    My older DS2 has a similar problem in the 3ds but not in a regular DS. (Weird, i know) I think it is due to the micro SD not setting right inside the flash card. You might try to Cut a small piece of paper and put in slot on the non connection side of the SD to Card connections.

    Same thing occurs with my Acekard 2i on my 3DS. I just take the cartridge out and blow it at the back really lightly, turn the system off for a minute, turn it back on, put the cartridge in, and it works for a long time, I promise you wont face the problem, because... It happened to me.

    It could be a contact issue, try the paper trick http://gbatemp.net/threads/solving-acekard-contact-issues.231412/

    thank you for the responses. I tried the paper trick and it seems to work more frequently but is still around 50/50 working. Probably a faulty card. Should be fun trying to get this resolved.
