    Hello. I have a problem with my SC.
    It was working ok for months. Now when I open my NDS with my SC inserted only the logo "Super Card DS" appears in the bottom screen. In the upper screen it remains white. I cant see the rom list etc. I have tried the same SC to other DS consoles with the same results. Is anything I can do to fix my card?

    Have you tried a different SD card? If so the next thing I would try is the SC hardware test.
    To do this remove your SD turn on your DS & hold the L & R buttons then use A to scroll.

    Yes I have try a different SD card. I have a flashed nds. When I try to load it with L+R pressed without any SD card inserted nothing happens (it appears the DS original menu). I try it with an SD card inserted and the test give me this results :


    Test SRAM
    SRAM ok!
    ____________
    Test sdram
    sdram ok!
    ____________
    Test flash
    flash id ok!
    flash ok!
    ____________
    Test SD/MMC
    SD/MMC ok!
    not find test file
    ____________
    Now SC Version:1.62
    ____________


    I cant figure out how I will be able to reflash this card. I try to boot it from a GBA SP and the Supercard menu appears for 1sec and disappears again. I can't do anything.

    might want to go to www.scdev.org

    post your question there, they can probably do a better job of figuring out whats wrong.

    Is the SD card in FAT/FAT16 (not FAT32)?

    I had that problem once all I did was take out the supercard and reinsert it firmly in the DS, I think the contacts between the DS and the card didn't have a good contact. oh and make sure you have a known working game on your memory card [​IMG]

    Try a 1.70 firmware upgrade this will help as well because the SC does a firmware search before booting the menu so it will prompt you in its broken english way "find new firmware?"

    Then if you install that firmware it may help.
