    Hello there!

    I just bought a Nintendo DS Lite along with DSTT card and I just can't get Super Mario 64 DS, New Super Mario Bros. and Tetris DS to load. The ROM shows up in menu properly, but everytime I try to launch it, the loading just freezes near the end and I have to reboot my NDS.

    I've tried the following:
    * getting other versions of the ROMs
    * using all the official & unofficial TTMenu versions I found
    * using YSMenu
    * formatting my microSD card (both slow and quick formatting, both FAT and FAT32 filesystems)
    * organizing ROMs and .SAVs in different ways


    EDIT: I just found out that the games actually work, but it takes a very long time (up to three) for them to load. Weird.
    EDIT #2: I just tried a different microSD card (8GB SDHC) and the games load much quicker (about 30s now). It's still slower than the other (and sometimes bigger) games, but it's acceptable now.

    Maybe you can try it with a faster microSD card.

    I don't really have any free microSD cards right now, but I will try it. It's still a little strange that 16MB Tetris DS loads WAY slower (up to 3 minutes) than 65MB Tony Hawk's American Sk8land.
