    Hi guys,

    just wondering if anyone know of this issue...

    I can get my acekard 2i to work on my regular ds and 3ds.
    I tried to boot Pokemon white version 2, got a Yellow "loading" sign.
    I tried booting other games, it works... tried Pokemon again, and decide to wait a bit whilst the "loading" is on... (bad decision..)


    restarted my console, and now my cart isn't being detected anymore...

    i tried reformating, and using other sd cards, it doesn't seem to work.

    Can anyone help please..

    It's happened before with the largest ROMs, since the AK2i wasn't designed with the biggest size in mind (it came out well before 512MB games).

    It handles them perfectly fine. There are checks in place to prevent large games from overwriting the bootloader. I'm not sure why its happening but I'll take another look and see if those checks still actually work...

    Wow i hope i dont run into that problem. Well for bigger games, or newer for that matter, I would probably use my DS2.

    It's done it at least once before and lots of people ran into it, though I don't remember which game release it happened with.

    From what I've read it was related to the way the MicroSD was formatted, as some got bricked and others didn't. Same thing happened to the iSmart IIRC.
