    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!!

    Yeah, not sure does the panasonic thing help.
    I just am a bloke and do not care to format my cards with that fancy formatter tool - Just windows' own tool is enough for me.

    And never had problems either so...

    Yes, i have a tip for "one PC-User".
    1. Ubuntu can be started as a Live-session from CD, nothing is changed at your system (it could even started from a USB-Stick)
    2. Linux, espacially Ubuntu can be installed on the same Machine as Windows (Dual-boot-system)
    3. Use HP - USB Formattool (for Windows), instead of Panasonic-formatter (for me it get better results)
    4. Gparted is available as Live-CD from here: http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php, so no one must install a complete OS, burn the downloaded iso, start with the burned CD, and format your TF with Gparted - thats it.

    You dont mention WHAT KIND of AK are you using...

    Many people got almost the same problems, but when they tell, that have AK2.1, and the problem is still there, although they formated properly etc -> this HINT cant help, cause they have card from BAD BATCH...
