    MY ds linker has been working fine the whole time iv had it. then yesterday, i tried updating the firmware so i could play Zelda PH, and something went wrong, and i ended up having to reformat my card. now when i try putting roms, and files onto it, the transfer rate is INCREDIBLY slow. what have i done wrong. i left it running all night, its not even halfway done

    Gambia, The
    Did you formatted your Card with Windows or over the DS-Linker formating ?


    Try to format again.
    When you start your DS with inserted card press A,B,L,R + DOWN after switch it on.
    Then a quick format should be start...

    you must hold the d-pad direction while powering on, then add the others finally adding 'a' to launch the dslinker from the nintendo menu screen. the screens go black and format begins.

    (the linker writer should also be in slot2 )
