    Ok, it's been about 6 months that I have my DSTT which was working perfectly fine since recently. It is now freezing every now and then... It sometimes crashes when the menu is loading (white screen), rarely after a game as loaded (fully loaded but then black screen) and very often during gameplay... when playing any games, it seems that it's freezing after about 5 minutes of gameplay, but most likely less. Even inside the games, I can see some problems like letters disappearing, no background, no more items ect...

    I've tested the freezing problem with 10 games, and they all have the same problems as described.... Here is a list of the games:
    Pokémon Platinum (U), The legendary Starfy (U), Tetris (U), Suikoden Tierkeis (U), Kirby Super Star Ultra (U), Digimon World Dawn (U), Pokémon Pearl (U), Mario Kart DS (U), Super Mario 64 DS (U) and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (J).

    I do not think that all of these games have the same problems, especially since they were all working. I tried to reformat (fully) my DSTT in FAT32, I also have the newest menu with the newest series of cheats... My games are all inside a 'games' folder so I cannot point out what is the problem...

    Could anyone help me out?

    I read about those, and no my DSTT is not a fake one... anything else could help?

    Ok, I just tested those 2 programs out, one says that my DSTT is Good (^^)v and the other says DSTTDUMP.Bin isn't found... could it be what causes all those freezing problem? If so, where do I download this thing and if not, what else could it be?

    Is the DSTT loose? try putting a thin peice of cardboard behind the card so that the pins of the DSTTmake better contact with your ds.

    try formatting your sd card and reinsert a new copy of the unofficial 1.17a02 firmware

    The piece of paper didn't work either...

    I already formated my card, but just to be sure, where do I find this unofficial firmware?

    Did you format with Windows formatter or the Panasonic formatter?

    I tried both, but last time I've formated, it was with Panasonic.

    I think you might have a contact problem with either your SDHC or your DSTT. I'm not sure, really.

    I was thinking the same thing, which is weird because it was working very well like a week ago and now it simply freezes all the time... I didn't change anything on my DSTT except since the last 2 days of constant freezing. I also tried real game on my DS and it doesn't seem to be the case for them. So, could it possibly be something that broke inside my DSTT? Or maybe my SD card as a problem? The only thing I know is that my computer can read my SD card perfectly and I can copy my games fine on them without any bug or anything else...

    Then it's very likely your DSTT problem.

    So, you are saying that my DSTT card is broked... *sigh* oh well, I guess I'll try to buy myself a new one then. I'm simply hoping it isn't my SD card though, that would be to bad.
