    Easy!

    Just click the handy SEARCH button at the top of the forum. See it? Yes. Well do a SEARCH then!!!

    Basically make your card a bit thicker by adding paper to it.

    Some people add paper to one side of the Acekard itself, I have a piece inside my card slot as my issue seems to be the microSD to Acekard contact.

    Basically, you want to use the paper to add thickness to the side away from the contacts.
    What this will do is make a tighter connection. For example, you put a piece of paper (`) at the top of the NDS slot (]) when you put the game (|) in.
    Normally a game in the slot would look like: ]|
    But when you add the paper, it will look like: ]'/ (Obviously the cart angle is exaggerated a bit)

    You want a square of paper, about as wide and tall as the slot.
    Start with 1 thickness of paper, sticking out the top of the slot and see if it works.
    If it deosn't work, or doesn't work consistently, fold it in half ONE way and try again.
    Then try folded in 3rds (3 thickness), then do 4ths (4 thickness).
    Keep increasing the thickness by one each time til it works consistently but be careful not to go too thick.

    Its really annoying after so many posts you keep saying to use the search button. What if there were no results on searching? A forum is for answers and info, im pretty sure that if there was no info found in search that someone would make a thread.

    EDIT: Ok, I did a search on it, and it does come up with results on the paper trick. The problem is none of them show you exactly what to do, which is what the TS is trying to see how.

    I freely admit I do keep mentioning the search button, however I feel it justified as 80% of new threads are due to people not using it.

    Another example is the thread asking about fake Acekards; there is even a sticky, yet they started a new thread!

    As you say, it is mentioned - and explained - following a search. OK, so it isn't set as a separate set of specific instructions, however most people have worked it out from what there is - hence there is no sticky or similar threads.

    Anyway, as per my original post, I did contribute an actual answer as opposed to just my generic response.
