    My SCDS2 arrived today! It was awesome! Until I tried to boot it up... things didn't go to well...
    It didn't recognise. My bro's DS2 is fine, so's my SD card. The DS2 just doesn't work. I'm feeling quite down because of this, quick replies would be appreciated.

    Also, I doubt the prongs aren't connected because face it, the card is so tight I doubt that's the problem.

    I doubt it. I mean, the DS2 is so tight I doubt that the prongs can't connect.

    I can't even access it. It doesn't show up on the DSi Menu or my DSL's menu.

    Sorry to read that your DSTWO is not being recognized by the console. I'm in the same boat. My DSTWO is on its way back to China via airmail. Hopefully the replacement will be functional.

    well well well i have some news

    i got mine

    set it all up and worked

    then took out SD card but back in and got NO SD CARD error

    then reset and got no NDS card inserted blank screen

    i thought oh dear

    THEN!!!

    i deiced to sneak a looks insides

    it seems its the SD card connectors

    you have to make sure the SD card line up correctly

    if its slightly to the left or on the tilt it seems to null the card and confuse it (even a very slight tilt)

    i tweaked it so its better now and now i have NO PROBLEMS

    all loads and boots

    saves from my R4 need converting me thinks and didn't load um

    I've had a few problems too, the card doesn't boot even when my microSD is inserted. It took a few tries but eventually it actually recognized the card and I updated to the beta 1.05 firmware... seems to be working ok now. I'm not sure if that did fix it, probably like Pong said, bad connections in this batch of carts.

    Yes, it's probably just the MicroSD. Make sure the MicroSD is perfectly aligned.



    Either that or it is faulty. Just keep trying. Definitely not a connector issue since the DSTWO is so snug in the DS.

    About 4 or 5 tries, and afterwards I had a slight problem with the spring, but it seems to have sorted itself out now.

    It's not supposed to show up in your DSL's menu. On anything before the DSi, I believe it's supposed to autoboot.
