    i have formatted my card using low level formatting, and I have tried to put multiple different firmware versions on it, none of them working. nearly all of them just leave me with a blank white screen. i formatted and didn't install anything, and I get the message "Error: Open xmenu.dat error!"

    what am I doing wrong guys?

    thanks

    I don't have a N-Card. So buy a new flashcart!

    i've managed to get everything onto it (ds linker fw and xmenu 2.55) however when i try to play any game, i select the file in the menu and it goes straight to a blank screen. my other ds works fine with the rom.

    does anyone have any tips on what to do?

    Nothing will help for you. Go buy a new flashcart! I recommend M3i Zero, which includes real time save (save and load state).

    How i sad, here is the solution:

    First you have to dowload U-disk 1.45 or above. I used 1.45. Its worked fine.

    1. Plug usb writer into your nds and hook it up till an empty usb slot on pc

    2. HOLD A,B,L,R + Up on your nds to put the card into flash mode
    (Screen will say USB SAFE BLOCK)

    3. Windows OS will pick up a fireline device, so the card is ready to be formatted now

    4. Extract Contents of downloaded file to a folder on pc. Will make the folder "U disk 1.45" with some files

    5. Double click NAND_ALL.BAT will start the firmware flash

    6. After a few seconds it will be done, switch off nds and switch back on holding A,B,L,R + DOWN to format the card,

    7. Windows will auto recognize the card again as a mass storage device

    8. Copy xmenu.dat from extracted folder to the root of your card.

    9. Card will create DSYSTEM folder at bootup

    10. DONE , Your MK5, Firelinker, Flashpass, N-card or whatever other clone you are using now has dldi with write support

    Any question please contact me at "naldo.rocha@bol.com.br" and i will share my experiences. Good Luck!

    N-Card and clones are old as hell and updates haven't been released for it for a year or more....Buy a new flashcart when you get the chance!

    The PSRAM battery in mine broke a while back and bought a SuperCard DSone-i....Never looked back. Gave the screwed N-Card to my sister since she isn't worried about losing save games.... [​IMG]
