    I forgot
    Sometimes the cart can come a bit loose, just make sure it's in far enough and it will work fine.

    Not so much 'normal' as 'expected'...
    The AceKard has a thinner PCB (Printed Circuit Board) than other cards including that of retail games. This doesn't cause too much of a problem on new DS/DSLites, but on older systems and DSi's (which have a wider slot) it can cause contact issues.

    Scroll down to Step 12 here:

    I prefer cutting a piece of paper about the size of the contacts and slipping it under the PCB.
    This keeps the paper hidden and always in place so you don't have to worry about losing it or it getting crumpled or torn or stuck -- also looks a hell of a lot better.

    No mine is a real acekard. I went to the site there was a sticker on it to peel off and go to the site and put in the code to verfiy it was real and it was. I mean I haven't had any problems since the one freezing. It was when i was playing Advance Wars Day of Recon.... But its been working fine since So I dunno. I was curious cause im using a 8gig micro SDHC card and have about 40 roms on it lol

    Ignore lompoc, he's an idiot troll who think's he's some big hotshot in the DS Scene (but doesn't know what the hell he's talking about).

    Away from you.
    This is no longer just "normal", but it's gotten to the point where if it doesn't happen, your cart is a clone.

    As twiz said, try the paper trick.

    It doesn't happen to some models of course, that was a generalization.

    It's never happened to me either.

    But it doesn't happen on the Actel chipped genuine models, that's for sure. And before anyone goes "BUT THE ACTEL CHIPPED ONES ARE CLONES" remember that Acekard's original 2i had an Actel chip.

    Wow...What? Not one ounce of that post made sense [​IMG] Even Google translate makes more sense [​IMG] .

    But yeah, I'd say it's due to the build quality.

    You make me worry about the intelligence of humanity. I didn't make sense out of anything you said.
    And fix your abysmal grammar/spelling/typing skills.

    On-topic: It's not normal, but it's common. You can try the paper trick, which has been successful for me for the most part.

    lompoc is just an idiot troll who thinks he's a bigshot in the DS Scene, but doesn't know what he's talking about and makes nonsensical posts (seriously, check the post history... it's not long).

    Oh wait, I already said that here...

    my DSXL requires the paper trick.
    without paper trick, that damn thing locks up, freezes, doesn't show up, etc.

    ironically, it having tape on it makes it NOT show up on a DSi.
