    The menu ought to come up regardless of the xmenu file. Plug the DS into the computer before turning it on, that should bring the menu up, but I'm not entirely sure on that.

    Also, it tends to help when you use proper grammar; you come across as less of a noob and make it easier for people to read what you post.

    If the DS boots to the DS menu and not directly to the N-Card, no. The last time I recall someone having this problem, it seems like they got it to work after they made sure that the contacts on the card were clean, that they booted to the DS menu first, plugged in the USB cord, and then tried booting the card.

    If that doesn't work, try formatting the card and starting again(see N-Card FAQ topic).

    Download the latest firmware from the manufactures site, there will be two files xmenu.dat is the important one the other should be disregarded, just place the xmenu.dat file onto the card and it will work.
