    A few days ago before I installed AKAIO (to get some emulators working) and downloaded a SHITLOAD of other GBA roms (I already had some) for my Acekard2 on my DS phat, I tried everything except the GBA games and they worked. Now, when I load GBAexploader and select a game, the system crashes. I waited on the DS for 60 seconds, nothing came up. I'm not sure if this has to do with AKAIO or not. All I know is that this didn't happen before I used it. Help!

    You can't play GBA games directly from a Slot-1 cart (Except SCDS2 and iPlayer). If you want to play GBA games, get one of the carts I mentioned above (Go for the SCDS2). Or you can buy a Slot-2 cart (EZ-Flash 3 in 1).

    That's what I was gonna say, but at the end of his post he seems to say he had gba games working before he switched to akaio which would mean he must have some kind of slot 2 device.

    Just to clarify, you have a flashcart/expansion pack of some variety in your GBA slot as well? Again, what type?

    All I know is that I had to weld it in there (It was designed for a DS Lite) so removing it and checking what type it is may cause it to never work again. I don't remember its actual name, I bought it 2-3 years ago.

    You need to have one of these:

    If you don't have one, you need to buy one to play GBA games with your AK2.

    No, you don't understand. This thing was working for 2 years before I bought another flash cart and it still worked. When I started putting emulators on there, NESDS wouldn't work for AK2 default, and AKAIO was the only way I could work it. Now it doesn't work but AKAIO shouldn't have anything to do with it.

    If it helps any, my microSD is completely full.

    Then roll back to the previous version of AKAIO.
