I downloaded it, and all I got was an nds file.
I just got this flashcart, so I dunno what to do.
Do you have your computer set to read hidden files? Try that. But there should also be a folder in there with all the firmware stuff. Just copy/paste everything from the rar file you downloaded to the root of your card. I'm pretty sure you can just swap out the loaders instead.
Right now I have nothing on my Micro SD card. I just formatted it Fat32.
I just got my flashcart today, but I don't know how to set up the MicroSD.
Can you help me set it up?
P.S. I'm using a DS Lite, not a DSi if that's any help.
I always though WinRAR showed hidden files, if they're even hidden.
Your SD card should be fine as it is right now.
Download 1.6 RC2 here.
Drag/drop the _aio and akmenu4.nds files to the root of your SD card. You don't need the .txt files, they're just the change log and readme.
Download games from wherever (don't ask for links, it's against the rules!)
Put the games wherever. A "Games" folder is the most organized thing to do.
As of now, pretty much every game works, so no need to use funky booting methods or whatever.
There is nothing hidden in the akaio rar at all so that shouldn't even be the case.
Thank you! Do I need to download the official firmware at all?
You are replacing the offical firmware with something better.
Format your MicroSD card with the Panasonic SD formatter if you have not done so already. The windows formatter is not meant for MicroSD.
Then, download the latest akAIO (1.6 RC2) here
Extract the RAR, and inside yous should find akmenu4.nds, and a folder "_aio"
Put both the "akmenu4.nds" and "_aio" folders onto the MicroSD.
Wait for the copying to finish, then eject the microSD and put it in your Acekard.
Would help to know what Acekard you bought, and whether or not it has a chip sticking out from the sticker.
If you got an Acekard 2.1, it may not work correctly, as there is a problem with them currently. If it is a clone, you will get a message stating so.
To put games, create a "Games" folder on the MicroSD, and put them in there. You will have to find said games on your own.
EDIT: Damn me and my slow typing
Thanks everyone for the help.
oh and I have an Acekard 2i bought from RHS
probably one of their actel chipped clones. they are knowingly selling them. they said to one person i talked to that they "don't see a diference." lol.
Are there any cons to using the windows formatter? I've been using it for quite a while now, not knowing it wasn't meant for MicroSD's
AFAIK - Not really - I've heard that the Windows Formatter doesn't "do it to the correct standards" - & sometimes because of this files can get corrupted by flashcards saving etc. I've never had any trouble at all until I swapped to the panasonic one just to be safe
Thanks. I'll be reformatting with the Panasonic SD formatter, to be on the safe side of things too
So there's no need to update the loaders?
