This maybe help all who have problems with the Acekard. I myself had several issues with Acekard and Akaio. Sometimes the system - settings get resetted too, every time i softreset a game, or suddenly a game is no more starting, saves are corrupted, sometimes the system freezes and so on. So long i always use PanasonicFormatter on my Vista System to Format the MicroSD. Copying of the files from PC to SD is also done on Vista System. Yesterday i tried that all with my other PC who has Ubuntu 9.10 on it. Formatting with Gparted, copying all done on Ubuntu. And from this time on my problems are blown away. Everything works fine! For all who has similar problems - a try is worth it!!
