    i'm using this for my emulator card and i am playing an snes game on it... but it keeps freezing so when i reboot it it goes to do the ds menu (even through i have the ds to auto start it's games when a slot 1 device is in) and i look at back of the and at the bottom i see lines where the gold bar is. is that normal. let me know here.

    DStwos are notoriously decent flashcards, its more likely the micro sd that is malfunctioning, just to be safe you might want to test a couple more micro sds before blaming the dstwo itself

    i also have a cyclon ds evo and i switched the card from that to here and vice versa what i mean is i have two mirco sd cards that a 8gb so i just switched files with them so yeah.. and it's still doing the same thing and my cyclon ds evo never freeze's on me... so i'm wondernig wtf is going on with it.

    it should say what class it is on it, class is basically telling you the read and write speed of the card and a card with a low class WILL have freezing issues on high end flashcards, i had to upgrade to a 16gb class 6 from an 8gb class 2 for this very reason

    Its contact issues between either the dstwo/ds or the microsd/dstwo

    The line is just the sticker being pressed against the chip on the flashcart, nothing to worry about (but you could upload a picture if you really think its a problem)

    I've had a few SCDS2 that have broken.

    I don't think it is such a stable card.

    But the broken dstwos didn't have the same symptoms as he's having did they?

    maybe i will when i get to my mom's today. i'll take a pic of the back of it.

    it just keeps freezing. i wondering if getting a new mirco sd card would fix it... but they both work fine on my old cyclon ds evo (well the mirco sd cards do.)
