    Same thing. I am using a kingston micro-sd card that I bought from http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00200K1TS/.

    Kingston is a reseller and sometimes can sell low-quality ones, see if you can find another MicroSD to test.

    I don't think I have another one. Should I buy a different brand?

    Try format size adjustment on, and full format on. It'll take a while, but it'll clean up the MicroSD for proper use.

    Are you guys sure its not a problem with the card? I tried another MicroSD and it still doesn't work. How is nds-card.com with exchanges?

    like they said. if the cart says its starting its an issue with either the sdcard, OR the kernel isnt properly installed.

    Couldn't the MicroSD slot in the card just not work? I tried 2 brand new sd cards (8gb kingston and 16gb sandisk) and I am pretty sure I installed it correctly. I just put the files in the root as you can see in the picture I posted. Version 1.58. I have formatted using every setting and have used the download from r4ids.cn and filetrip posted by pong.

    Does it say the same thing without a MicroSD in there at all?

    Well damn, it does sound you got a faulty one. E-mail the shop ans ask if they'll do a replacement.
