About a week ago I placed an order for an Acekard 2.1 at realhotstuff, it came today. I formatted the miscrosd card (4gb kingston) with gparted (running Ubuntu), extracted the AKAIO files, and placed the SD card into the acekard. At first the SD card wouldn't go in all the way and there was no retention, it would just fall out if you turned it upside down. After fiddling with it, I realized that for some reason the spring-loading mechanism was seated too high, and the problem corrected itself and the SD card went all the way down in. Problem solved, or so I thought. I fired it up again, got past the loading screen, only to be greeted with "akmenu4.ds not found". I extracted the files so that both the "__aio" folder and "akmenu4.ds" files are there, I've tried formatting in both FAT16 and FAT32 and get the same error. I've also tried this with both 1.85 and 1.85a. With 18.5a I get this strange error about "The skin Ad.EvoR can't be found, etc." I'm thinking that maybe I'm formatting this incorrectly or gparted is doing something wonky, or I'm missing a crucial step in the installation process. I can't use the Panasonic formatter as I am not running Windows. I'm at a loss so I come humbly to consult the minds of GBAtemp.
