I have a launch DS Lite and an M3 Perfect SD which I purchased at the same time. This has been a great flash cart but just this past weekend it started to exibit some strange problems. Often now when I turn on my DS I am either presented with a blank white screen, or the DS system menu where you can change the time, brightness etc at which point it says there is nothing in the GBA slot (slot-2). I tried repositioning the M3 in my DS but I had the same results. I then put a little bit of pressure on the underside of the M3 to try to force the connection between the M3 and the GBA slot and this seems to work for the most part. I am then presented with the black screen saying "This is not a licsenced product " and then to the main screen of the M3 operating system. However if I let go of the pressure at this point then the screen and text become garbled but I can still navigate etc. If I apply the pressure again the text become readable once more. The strange thing is that once I launch a game, homebrew app or whatever it is 100% fine. I use DS Organize as an MP3 player often and once I get it booted and I skip ahead songs etc so it is having no problem reading the SD card, ie I don't have to continually put pressure on the M3. So has anyone else had behaviour like this. I don't have a GBA game to test out to see if it is my slot-2 itself but perhaps the connections are dirty. Any suggestions and/or ideas any our you have would be greatly appreciated. I can get it to work for now but if this continues I may be forced to finally get a slot-1 flash cart. Thanks in advance for any help.
