    I can't help you with your problem, but I can show you two ways to search.

    First of all, our built-in search tool is in the translucent black bar in the upper right corner of your screen. Mouse over it to see it.

    Sometimes the search tool has some quirks, and I find that going to google and using the command
    Code:
    site:gbatemp.net
    before your search terms is pretty useful.

    Good luck, and welcome to GBAtemp!

    reseat your msd card. make sure you have a clean install of akaio on there, and that you aren't missing any files. if both of those do not yield positive results then you are probably experiencing the all-to-common contact issue.

    Contact issues are really troublesome, they could range from just cleaning the contacts with a tissue to doing the paper trick to changing the whole cart.

    As you are describing...it seems akaio's version or contacts as said before me...the firmware should be fine if the loading screen runs...

    sometimes another format of the card works with a full clean copy over of AKAIO from scratch.

    I've had to do that countless times.

    It could be how you're formatting the microSD card. The Panasonic SD Formatter is known to give better results than generic OS formatting tools.

    You say in your opening post that the acekard "suddenly got the loading screen", which i assume means it was working then just gave you a loading screen.

    You've established it's not the microSD, so it has to be either a contact issue or the the acekard itself, because obviously everything is set up correctly on the card as it was working before you "suddenly" had the issue.

    Dude, tell people what you did to get it working? Some people might have similar problems in the future. :)

    sure thing, i was just simply re-drag the aio folder and the akmenu4 files to the sd card over the existing one and deleted some readme files off the root of fthe sd card and voila!!!

    And jimmy, you had helped me on my very first post. thanks.

    yep, sometimes it just takes a re-copy of the files... no idea why but every time i've had this problem (which is a lot, since I build and put the loaders and menu on the card each time it compiles) the solution has been to just... copy the files again.

    I honestly believe it's not a problem with your coding, Normmatt, it's a matter of the SD card used. Iffy cards simply cause problems from time to time, and that's life. :)
