    it's dead alright. Im curious how long is it in your possession.

    Hmmm...seeing you have more than 1000 posts, I could say, it's a year r so.

    It died after only 6 months of usage? Thats not good at all.

    Acekard 2 does have a 1-year warranty, so you can still try to replace it via the acekard team.

    Have you tried the tape fix? Put 1-3 layers of tape on the bottom of the label side of the cart to make better contact. I have to do this for my AKRPGs and EZV in order for them to show up.

    How often do you remmove your acekard? it could be possible your slot 1 case is damaged or vice versa. But if it doesnt bother you, good for you.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'll monitor our acekard here since it has not passed 6 months since purchased. last one was in May, I think.

    Thank you for sending us your troubles. It will help us in advance.

    Sure is.

    This topic is really scary. I never even thought of flashcarts having contact problems. I hope it never happens with my ak2i. Love this cart.
