    Hi. I have two DSTTi cards. When I turn the DS on with them inserted I get "There is nothing inserted in the Game Card slot".

    One of them used to work before. I carried it about in my pant pocket for a while and then it stopped working. The other came out of the box that way... [​IMG]

    I already tried the paper trick. Doesn't work. I'm guessing that the game card got a static shock or something and that erased the firmware from the flash cart, or some variation thereof.

    My question is, I've read about how to go about updating/flashing a flash cart that boots up. Is it possible to update/flash firmware to flash carts that dont boot up?

    I have a DS Lite, a DSi, a R4 (using wood firmware) and a few DSTTi cards (besides the non working ones), so I can load homebrew and use it to flash the firmwareless cards or something.

    Throw me some ideas here folks. I was about to throw these carts out... but I figured I'd post here before I got rid of them.
