    I Just bought a EZFLASH Vi from Shoptemp.

    I went to update to Firmware 101 had the newest kernel 3.0 ob1 put the card in my DSL and ran the .NDS file for the updated firmware. Followed the on-screen instructions then the top screen went blue and said erasing sector or some other random garbage then read error 00020 and other garbage code ran across the screen

    I let it sit there for about 15 minutes. There was no change on either the top or bottom screen. leaving no other choice but to turn it off and hope for the best. now when i turn my DSL back on the tak icon doesn't show up in the slot one area and when i put it in my DSi it shows no card inserted. is there a way to fix this or is it a faulty card. Did i download some crap file from filetrip? What happened?

    I think i remember reading months ago that people were having luck fixing this with a ds linker but who knows?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    It's a faulty ez5i to my opinion. The flash memory died during update.
    Ask for a replacement.
