    After about a year of non-use, I pulled out my iSmartDS flashcart and reloaded it with all my ROMs and save data and, for some reason, NSMBDS gives a white screen instead of loading. I have tried downloading a fresh ROM from [censored], pulling a known-working one from my archive, and even loading a hacked ROM (NSMB3 by SKJmin). I have also deleted the save data.

    I am using the latest firmware and software from their site.

    I haven't tried many other games, but Diddy Kong Racing DS and CrossworDS both work just fine...

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    try reformatting your msd card, putting on a fresh copy of the kernel, a clean crc verified copy of the rom, and then test again. it sounds like you have msd corruption. i've had instances where 1 file did not work and i actually track back a few hundred files to find exactly what was causing the issue. replacing it did nothing, i had to format the msd card. as such, its always an important step in debugging.

    I tried formatting the card as well as a different mSD card. No change in behavior. All the ROMs I've tried work fine in my DSOne and on NO$GBA and my DSTT w/ Wood.

    Haven't tried (and have lost my DSi power cord, ugh), but usually NSMB will try and load and then crash with an actual save error.
