    Ok, I have both a M3 Simply and a SCDS but only 1 microsd card. So this last week ive been erasing the software on my card that went to the M3 and put on SCDS software and vise versa. Then today my m3 Simply wont boot on my DS Lite [​IMG] . When its in my slot-1 my DS just goes to the normal menu just like if you had no flashcart in it.

    What is wrong?? What did i do?? What can i do to fix this?

    (also my SCDS still works, i think.)

    Thank you!!

    Is that an ad for SCDS??

    If not, I think it was posted before that similar problems were fixed simply by reseating the M3 PCB on its plastic cover.

    Not sure if I am allowed to post links, but here:
    http://www.m3-forum.com/viewtopic.php?t=2132

    I am sure there was a post on GBAtemp about this same problem, but I couldn't dig it out. Maybe someone would help and posit a link here.

    I hope that helps.

    It happens to me often, with all the flashcarts [​IMG]
    My DS boots and says there is no cart in the DS.
    So I just eject the cart, toy with the microsd, and reinsert it firmly... usually works.

    Your problem might be different... I guess you've been trying that a lot.

    used to happen with my passcard 3. Im pretty sure all you have to do is take it out and put it back in. Its either the contacts on your simply are not perfect or the contacts in your ds arent perfect. And sometimes it could even be your micro sd thats not sitting properly in your simply.

    And if all else fails blow on it NES cartidge style!!!!!

    You said "ive been erasing the software on my card..."

    That means... you never formatted your card?

    Why don't you format your card then?

    Use FAT instead of FAT32 for better compatibility.

    I take it you bumped the topic because you have already tried formatting your microSD card as mentioned above and that didnt cure anything,
    if not dont bump, just read...
