    I got my first acekard 2 from DealExtreme, put it in my DS and no go. All I get is "Loading"
    I tried inserting microsd card and the message changes to "System file is missing."

    Am I missing something or the card is no good?

    Did you read the instructions???
    You have to put the firmware on it (=micro sd card) first (and the other stuff like roms)
    Firmware here: http://www.acekard.com/download.php
    its called OS (operating system) on the site

    Use that site, it has a good guide, what you are missing is the firmware to run it. download the files from this site to your sd card and then pop that in the Ak cart. I recomend AKAIO as it is far superior to AK's firmware.

    Thanks, dudes!

    Any tips of wisdom or slices of experience you'd like to pass down to a beginner?
