    i plug the ds-x into my computer, and it doesnt show up anywhere at all. Then, i tried putting it in the ds while connected to the computer, still nothing. I tried different USB ports, different USB cable, removing all other USB things connected to computer. The DS-X works fine when I put it in my ds. it lights up when i connect it to the computer, so, why doesnt anything pop up? I cant put stuff on it if i dont see the folder.

    Holy crap, they still make those old fossils?

    Well, try taking dust out of the USB cord port on the cart.

    Now, that's just mean, implying someone would pay money for a DS-X today. ;]

    I would recommend that you cut your losses and give up on it. It has difficulties in playing newer games and it isn't going to be updated. Essentially it's a dead cart.

    You'd be better off buying an acekard or edge to be honest. Good luck anyway.

    I would actually get one just for the leds when I'm playing MP3 with my DS (and use my Cyclo for games)

    nevermind i fixed it myself, yes it sucks that it doesnt play the newer games, but my cousin wants to pay me for this and with the money he gives me, im gonna buy a EDGE i guess. I had no idea i had to do all this patching, and banking, and patching, and banking, without the banking parts

    thanks for all the help guys, the only real problem with this cart is that the newer games dont work and patches never work on them

    (shoulda bought an edge card)

    There are many more problems with DS-X. No DLDI auto-patching (despite the "homebrew only oriented product" the team wanted to promote), no more support (there was probably NO support at all from the beginning, according to their DEAD official forum), no replacement for dead units, high risk of bricking while updating, p1ngpong's favorite cart, no official downgrade tool, no Mac and GNU/Linux updating tool, no SD slot, huge slowdowns at boot while browsing games and while saving, and many more... Please have mercy for your cousin. No one deserves a DS-Xtreme (including Satan, Bob Barr and Mark Foley).

    Why do you think the Holocaust was so bad?

    Hitler bought all the Jews DS-Xtremes while he enjoyed his Cyclo Evo. The DS-X was so bad that nearly 2/3rds of the Jewish population starved and gassed themselves to end the misery it caused.
