    Hello! I just acquired a SuperCard DS Two, and I can't get it to run on my DS Lite. I'm using a ScanDisk micro SD memory card, and so far I've used different firmware, tried reformatting the card several times, etc, and it just can't get past the NO FIND SD CARD blue screen.

    Something I've noticed that's odd is that the SD card doesn't fit as well as it does in my R4 card - it sort of goes too far in. Maybe that's part of the issue? Should I just try and exchange the card and see if a different one works?

    Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

    alanjohn check ur pm
    Have you formatted with Panasonic SD formatter?
    If not, do it.
    If yes, make sure you have set it to FULL - (ERASE ON)

    I did do that, and it didn't make a difference :/

    Away from you.
    You know that it's a spring loaded micro SD slot right?

    Like the DS cartridge itself, that you have to click in?

    HUH Well that's actually helpful, because it's impossible to do that with this card, the SD just sinks in :/;; It's just defective, then.

    Push it down with your fingernail and it SHOULD click in.

    If not then take it out and blow on the contacts on the SD as well as the SD slot.

    I've tried it, I swear it's impossible. I've squeezed it down to the point where I feared breaking the damned thing.

    From here on all I can say is to try cleaning your actual cart contacts.

    The microSD card clicks into the slot in the Supercard. That's what we've been trying to say. then yeah, blow into the microSD slot before you do (but not too hard, you don't want to blow spit into it...) and that should do the trick.
    and DON'T SQUEEZE IT! that's the last thing you wanna do. just blow and it should be fine...

    Or maybe the spring just broke during shipping. It's happened before.

    Could be, specially since it'd have a long shipping time :/;
