    Just update your card from time to time and you'll be safe from most of these issues that pop-up.

    I dunno, that video didn't look fake to me.

    No matter, I NEVER go online with my DS Lite anyway. N.E.V.E.R.

    Not that it matters, I live in the sticks and there aren't many places where I even could...but, all the same, I long ago decided it wasn't worth the risk.

    Nintendo can't do that because proliferation of malicious code in even their own console is illegal.

    Clarification:
    It's malicious to freeze a console without a single warning that playing a backup online will do it.
    It's not malicious to update a system menu to disable the use of software not approved by the company, when warnings are given that it may end your consoles life.

    Honestly there are so many of these topics of card X not working, not showing up (minus the DSi 1.4 firmware problem), freezing the DS, etc. that someone really needs to put up a sticky telling people to:

    Clean the contacts of the card with rubbing alcohol
    Put a piece (or 2 or 3) of tape on the label side to make better contact with the DS pins
    Clean the microSD card's pins with rubbing alcohol
    Format the microSD and put a clean copy of the loader on it

    Many times the tape trick works wonders (as it does with my AKRPGs, EZV).
