    dunno i want to make sure it's not my fault before sending angry letters to my retailer but: if i plug my m3 ds real into my flashed dsphat it says no ds cart found? that should not happen, right? or do do you need a special fine on the flashcard somewhere?

    Should still come up if it didn't have files. Tried putting it in a few times, or on a different DS? Sounds like a faulty card (bad contact)

    wow that was fast
    i tried a few times, not a chance [​IMG] i don't have another ds to test with
    crap

    edit: well i went to the store which sold me the card. the guy there tested with different myro sd cards an other real and even a supercard one none of them worked. the strange thing is mariokart ds works in the ds. well i was able to return it but it's still strange does anyone have an explaination?

    oh well i guess i'll have to stick with my old slot2 card a little longer then.

    I haven't done this but when another person had this problem they took their cartridge apart and then put it back together again and it worked fine.

    the guy even tested a few of them on my ds and none of them worked really strange.

    Generally one doesn't send angry letters to a local shop, they just visit and be angry... [​IMG]

    if it's bad contact, i test this by holding down the card fully and powering on (because this always makes contact work for me).

    if its bad contact, it might be solvable by a piece of paper behind the contacts [​IMG]

    I had the same problem...worked in one DS and didn't see it in the other even after removing and inserting MANY times. I finally rubbed the contacts on the M3 DS Real with a pencil eraser....and What do you know...It worked!!
