Hey guys. I'm really sorry, but I've got a problem with the Acekard, and am worried as I need to get it fixed (or have a new one sent through) by Friday as it's a present. I pop in the card and as it doesn't autoboot yet, I choose the Acekard 2i (I have a DSL) and it says "Loading" in blue, but then quickly flashes white and stays at a black screen after I wondered if it was a clone but the screens are black - not white or green, and it certainly looks real and I can feel a round chip in it. It could be a rookie mistake but I don't want to start faffing around too much in case I mess it up. If someone could help me that would be really great and much appreciated. I used the guides on here by the way. To make things easier, I'll say what I have done so far: First thing I did was format with Panasonic Then I downloaded AKAIO v1.6 RC2, extracted, then dragged the __aio folder and the ak2menu4.nds into the root. I added a Games folder on the root too and dragged in a fair few games (I dragged in the games after the next point though) Even though there was the loader in the loader file in the _aio folder anyway, I got the most recent AKAIO one and replaced it (the 2 loaders in there were an akloader.nds and the ak2loader.nds - I tried to work the card with just the ak2, and with both. I've left it so both are in there) There were 2 skins/themes (the AKAIO one and a Zelda one :S) which I deleted and put a different one in from Acekard I hope it's a rookie mistake and easily fixable. I am worried it could be a clone though even though it has no window screen thing, and I can feel the chip when I peel off the sticker. I'm sorry I started a thread, I would have dragged one up from ages ago, but I didn't know if the forum allowed me to hijack a thread albeit months/years later. Thanks a lot for any help - much appreciated.
