    My acekard died last week so i ordered a new one from RHS i got it today and well im wondering if its new or fake:
    The box is 25% smaller than my last one
    I got a black card reader with it labelled acekard on it
    My acekard didnt have a sping loaded slot this time
    Ive played my DS for about 3hours nonstop and sofar akaio is working fine even my 16gb card that wasnt working on my old acekard is working good on this one

    Are you running AKAIO 1.5? Well then obviously it's a new Acekard batch.

    You know you could have gotten another one for free. There's a one year warranty nobody seems to care about.

    Apparently some people just have money burning a hole in their pocket.

    Start > More > Help.

    At the bottom it says which firmware is running, and next to it is the hardware number. Mine's 81 (spring loaded), so his must be a newer batch.

    Yeah i figured that out already by looking around on the AKAIO menu. Mine is 81 as well and spring loaded. 81 is the best. [​IMG] I've been wondering though, what do they do in these hardware revisions? They should keep spring [​IMG]

    ehh i think HW 81 might be a new one as well. I have a 81 and so does shattered screens.I bought this one recently. Could HW "81" be acekards new revision? Or is it a cheap clone that works on 1.5?[​IMG] Anyways i don't really care about the AK's hardware, but anyways HW 81 users ftw! [​IMG]
