Can anyone help with fixing my Flash Card? I've got a supercard2, and whenever I try to start it I get the error message "An error has occured. Press and hold the POWER button to turn the system off. Please refer to the Operations Manual for details." I've already tried renaming the dstwoupdate.dat to dstwoupdateb.dat and leaving it for 10-15 mins. I've tried reformatting the SD card (using a sandisk adapter, but the one included), and a completely different SD card and still get he error. I also only currently have access to a 3DS. Any ideas?

Thats great and all, but as I said in the first post, I don't have access to any other DS aside from my current 3DS. Is there no way to update using that?

If i had access to just a dsi xl with a lower firmware would that work instead of using an ds lite to update firmware ?

What I've heard is the following:

1) Place "dstwoupdateb.dat" in the root of the MicroSD card, as well as the "_dstwo" and "_dstwoplug" folders.

2) Insert the MicroSD card into the DSTWO, then the DSTWO card into the DSi/3DS system.

3) Load the DSTWO as you normally would.

4) You should see the message "An error has occurred......." DO NOT TURN OFF THE SYSTEM!!!!

5) Instead, leave the DSi/3DS at this screen for 10-15 minutes with the DSTWO card still in the console. If you want to play it safe, leave it alone for 30 minutes.

6) After the 10-15 or (30 minutes), turn off the console and remove the flashcard.

7) Insert the MicroSD card into you computer and delete the "dstwoupdateb.dat" file.

***If you don't, then the DSi/3DS console will try to flash the firmware update the next time you get to the error screen. If you turn the console off or remove the flashcard before 10-15 minutes, your flashcard will most likely become bricked. Then you will have to find a DS Phat or DS Lite and another flashcard to restore the DSTWO***

8) Hopefully, when you load the flashcard again, it should run.

Could anyone confirm if the 3 minute method still works for v1.25 of the firmware + 7.0.0-16U (2DS) units? I unfortunately bought my DSTwo AFTER updating -.-

Thanks!

Works on every Supercard DSTWO regardless of the model or firmware of the system it is being run on.

In the future, if you have an issue, please open a new thread in its appropriate subforum rather than reviving old threads that haven't been posted to in months.
