    So about a month ago I bought a Acekard 2 for my DS Phat from a website recommended here (realhotstuff.com). It came in the correct box, everything was normal. However, since the start, it has had trouble getting many games past the title menu, and has had trouble saving certain games. It will not run simple and older games like Hotel Dusk, Contact, Rune Factory, and others. I now have a DS lite, and the troubles haven't gone away. Will they replace my kart?

    Have you tried the latest AKAIO f/w? You could try backing up your save files and reformatting the card with panasonic sd formatter and trying again?

    I hadn't been using AKAIO, And it's an Acekard 2, not a 2i. I'll try Akaio right now, If it doesn't work ill report back

    Ah, you certainly should be using AKAIO, be sure to install the latest 1.6 RC2.
    It's leaps and bounds better than the official firmware.

    Just put AKAIO on it, title screen still doesn't load. What would I reformat the microsd card to?

    You can do one of two things.

    1) Return it and demand an AK2i to ensure there won't be another bad batch.

    2) Wait for the next public release of AKAIO as its been said that a bad batch fix may be incorporated.
