    Anyone got this working with an Acekard ak2i for DSi? For me, it halts on load with an error, even after renaming files/folders as described above, and even after DLDI patching (using acek.dldi patch).

    I'd like to try v2, since the v1 version on the Acekard site is next to horrible ... are there any alternative apps for media playback on this card?

    Firstly, what's the error it comes up with ? - that might help us figure out what's wrong

    Also what 'firmware' are you using (Ak2i own or AKAIO) ?

    You mention you used 'acek.dldi' to patch it - I think that's the wrong one

    Try using the 'ak2_sd.dldi' file that's in the '__AK' folder (if you are using 'AK2i' firmware)
    If you are using AKAIO DON'T use the one in the '__AIO' folder - download the AK2i firmware & use that version instead - there's seem to be a difference between the two versions

    Also try deleting the file 'logbuf.txt' from '/moonshl2/' folder - Don't ask me why. if you don't Moonshell locks up for some reason

    okay i have a problem, my moonshell won't start, when i pressed it, it says memory card size not supported (4 gig), or it says file cluster is too smal , and why is that?

    Run a backup and reformat the card. Reload the backup, and then try to run "DirectBoot" instead. It's a known issue on some acekards that won't accept the normal boot method.

    Thanks CannonFoddr: I think the combo of patching with the ak2_sd.dldi (using AK2i firmware) and removing the log file helped ... I had also renamed the moonshl2/ folder to moonshl/ and that was a problem as well.

    A bit OT, but is there a comparison between Ak2i and AKAIO firmware for this cart? Which is better?

    To tell the truth I have no idea what's better (My main card is a DSTTi - but soon upgrading to a M3i Zero)
    I believe that AKAIO is considered 'better' for compatibility than the Ak2i firmware - especially in the SAV department (I've read a few threads saying that AK2i corrupts SAV files), other than that I've got no idea - sorry
