    Hi guys

    Hope you can help me! I was updating the firmware on my N Card and something went wrong (not sure what), now when i try to format the card i just get two white screens. Tried going into save mode and I get the message USB SAVE MODE D14. Can't get the PC to find the Linker either, F:\ drive comes up with an I/O error.

    After reading some other threads on here i think its bricked but any advise you could give me would be appreciated.

    As i will need a replacement cart, any info on what to buy would be appreciated too.

    Thanks in advance

    The cheapest is delaextreme.com
    The most reliable, but most expensive is www.minionlinestore.com
    The most expensive shipping is on www.sky2k.com
    There are others, but these are the "Best".

    Have you tried re-flashing your N-card? There are plenty of threads here on doing exactly that.


    Btw, I recommend bamboogaming.com as a good and cheap site for getting the N-clones MK5 and DSFireLinker.

    Thanks for the replies. I tried to reflash the cart but cant get the PC to recognise it so no joy there

    Thanks for the sites, do you know of anywhere in the UK that sell the carts?

    The contacts on your USB-linker could be dirty. Try this cleaning & upgrade guide:

    As for UK shops, no idea.
