Hi, my name is Luis, i am from Chile, and this is my second post on this forum, but, i need your help please...

I just received my AceKard 2i today. I've put the v4.13 firmware on my card, both the _ak2 folder and the akmenu4.nds file in root directory.
My problem is most often when I start my NDS Lite it freezes on the loading screen. The top screen where 'Nintendo DS' appears only shows 'Nint' then it freezes.

Thing that confuses me is that sometimes the acekard works. The NDS Lite will load up into manual mode, and I will see the acekard is inserted and I can start it.

I tried changing the NDS Lite setting from Manual mode to Auto mode so that the AceKard 2i will load immidiately, but I have the same problem there.

It is quite annoying because I have to turn on and off the NDS Lite between 2-10 times before it does not freeze.


Any help would be greatly apprechiated.

Sounds like a contact problem, meaning the metal contacts are not properly touching inside the DS slot.

I had the same thing happen with a passme card. It's not only the AK2.

Try cleaning the metal contacts a little with a dry cloth. Then insert the card, and try pulling up a tiny bit. This usually works on my passcard2.

I should also mention I don't have my AK2 yet.

You could try putting a piece of paper or cardboard next to the flash cart to try to help it make contact. If that works, I'd return it to wherever you bought it from and get a new one.

It's a lose connection. I had the same problem with a DSTT. I returned it for a Acekard 2i. I don't have a problem with my Acekard 2i, but I have no doubt that's your problem. I tried the cardboard thing with the DSTT and it didn't work. Just return it for a refund, and buy one from dealextreme.
