    Background is:

    I watched movie from a new 8G micro card, without format first. Then my working Acekard bricked. I tried paper trick, several times, it is back. So I format my new 8G micro card with SDFormat, but on Win7. I thought I am safe now. But I am wrong. When watching movie, it freeze again, then bricked again.

    My dsi version is 1.4U

    I tried paper trick. Many many times. Doesn't work.
    Then I borrowed another DSL with TTST card, and tried the update/unbrick by running the 1.4 DSL file.
    After the blue screen shows up for "Eject card and insert again, then press B", I switched the card, inserted my bricked card, then press B. But it hangs on there for ever.

    I also tried the 1.4 DSL_NEW file. Same result. Hangs on "Press B" for ever. Should I try 1.41 DSL unbrick?

    1. Can somebody please help me? Or my only solution is to buy a new card?
    2. If I buy a new card, should i continue use the 8G micro card? Will that brick the new flash card again?

    What do you mean by 'you tried the paper trick many times'? Did you keep stuffing paper under the contacts?
    You should only need one MAYBE two if for some reason it doesn't work the first time.


    If you haven't done it already, put the slip of paper under the contacts and try to re-update it to 1.4.1 using another card.

    I used one piece A4 paper, and Combo Paper Trick method. I believe it includes the Contact. I tried several times, but each time only use one A4 paper. Maybe I should thicken the paper?

    I have also tried with paper under the Contact and unbrick using another card. Same result, stops on "Press B". Looks like the DS Lite can't detect the bricked Acekard.

    i dont believe its bricked, since you said the first time you fixed it with paper trick. maybe the contacts on your ds got messed up from the first time you did the paper trick

    Since I have my friend's DS Lite, I also tried my card on that console. Also can't be detected.
    I didn't dare to test her TTDS card on my dsi, in the case her card is damaged.

    I don't know whether it is related. The card didn't work when I lie on bed, and watching the movie by put my dsi rotate 90 degree, since I was lying on my right side. Before I usually placed it on my chest. Could that the reason breaking the card?

    you crammed a whole A4 page into your slot 1? Somehow i can't even imagine sticking a card in slot 1 when there is an A4 folded inside too.

    so what is the problem? After playing a movie your AK doesn't start anymore?
    Then what? You reformat and put new FW on, and it works again, untill you play another movie?

    what movies are you playing and with what? Obviously some .DPG format, and what version of Moonshell?

    The first time I did get it back by paper combo. But this time, no luck. No matter how many times I tried.
    By A4, I just mean the thickness is a piece of A4 paper. Of cause I cut it to fit the card shape, and the contact shape.

    Yesterday, I tried 2 A4 thickness, no luck. And I also tried business card. You can guess the result....
    What I can do now? Only solution is to buy a new card?

    The movie is the same on my 2G micro before. And it works very well for 6 months. Nightmare begins when I use the new 8G card.
