This is more of an informational for people that got stuck in a boat like me. I used to not have paddles, but I have found some and wanted to spread the information because this drove me up the wall for a while until I hunted down the information. You might say, what a tard, this is simple, but I did not know it. So I recently purchased a Acekard for my DS-lite. Next I found a place and downloaded around 27 gigs of DS ROMs to get started with. When I copied some of these over to my games folder on the root of the SD card, then launched up AKAIO 1.8.1 and looked at the icon displayed, it showed just a grey icon of a DS. If I attempted to launch the game, it started to load then I got a white screen and had to manually boot the ds-lite. After attempting to research this issue, I found no post really explaining why a perfectly good ROM is not really being recognized. The first thing I came across was the ARM7.bin replacement. I attempted that but did not have any success. I thought it might be outdated, but it everywhere still so I suppose it has its purpose. Now to the point.... I found a small article that says that some ROMs that do not work will work simply by unpacking them with dslazy or dsbuff then repackaging them. This method worked for me. So if a ROM is not showing as recognized and has that DS grey logo by it and is not working, attempt to unpack it and repackage it with dslazy or dsbuff. Now to those that have been around for a while, please forgive the ramblings of a noob sauce that just got into this hobby.
