    so tried the Rhapsody english music hack posted on this forum and it didnt boot

    it works if I resample the usic tracks tho, so the hack itself is not the problem

    file size limit, perhaps?

    what's the biggest rom you have played on your ak2?

    btw, I'm using the AIO freeware

    There's no "ROM file size limit".
    I use AKAIO, played lots of 256MB games.

    Yes, only "Cooking Guide" and its other versions are not Japanese.

    From Where???
    the acekard will not launch roms that have bad crc or header issues due to a patch. you need to correct this if you are having this problem. you can use ndstool.exe to fix the problem. run it from a command line prompt as ndstool.exe -f nameofrom.nds. you can check by hitting 'Y" to view the properties of the rom, it will list if it is corrupted or not. if this isn't the problem -- have you tried booting the rom with softreset/cheats turned off for that rom? if the rom takes up the full ram these patches will cause the rom to fail during loading.
