    A little over a month ago I replaced my old Acekard with a DSTwo. Yesterday I turned on my 3DS with the supercard in it, and it acted like there was no card inserted.

    I've tried everything: reformatted the SD card with the official SD formatter, tried two different SD cards (Kingston 8gb class 4, and an amazon 16gb class 10). Re-downloaded EOS and copied it onto the card. Removed and reinserted it over and over, restarted my 3DS.

    Unfortunately I don't have another DS to try it in, but retail carts all work fine, and even my old Acekard's icon shows up when I insert it, even though I can't use it since I upgraded to 4.4.0

    Is my Supercard completely dead? Anything else I can try?

    Tried to blow the card and insert it again?
    Maybe something is wrong with ur SD card?
    Does it work on PC?

    Both SD cards work fine in my PC.
    I just tried cleaning the contacts off with a q-tip, but it didn't make a difference.

    I have a card that does the same exact thing. Tried multiplr sd cards with no luck.

    tried paper trick? or use the latest firmware to update it? you might borrow a DSTWO from ur friend, and check whether its the error of your card.

    I tried every variation of the paper trick I could find. I disassembled the cart and tried reseating the PCB in the case, with and without paper to press the contacts up. Nothing worked.

    I wound up sending the card back to the store I got it from for replacement, but thanks for the ideas, folks.
