I just received my SuperCard Mini SD, and it came with a 2GB Mini SD card preloaded with moonshell. The SuperCard worked perfectly for my first few uses, in both a Nintendo DS Lite and a GBA. However, it stopped getting detected soon after that. I'm not sure if it's an issue with the cart or the SD card, however I'm starting to doubt this because the files show up on my computer. Could someone help me out?

That is an odd label, though I am not sure what went in the end there.

Anyway usual things with new flash carts is to check the pins and give them a clean (anything that is not going to burn it away or leave something behind really), and maybe fold some paper a few times to stick between the pcb and the case to force better contact.

It could still be a deeper issue with something internal having failed but try the above first.

I did both of those and it seems to work now! Thanks!

Hmm, I have another strange issue. I had been using it for a while on my DS Lite, but now it refuses to boot, with a black screen after the gameboy logo. (If booted in DS mode, I get two white screens.) However, it still loads fine in my GBA.

I have lots of used real GBA carts where the "Nintendo" either does not appear or appears garbled when I try them in GBA (SP). Try shooting a can-o-air into the GBA unit. Cleaning the game contacts with isopropyl alcohol often helps, unless there's no more metal left to polish! My games are REALLY old: the contacts look worn out often look as if someone's large dog ate them and then shat them out again. They come from the "$10 and under" bin at my nearest (It's a goddamned pilgrimage....) mom & pop game shop. I've never had this problem with my (relatively) new EZ-FLash IV or Supercard. Your supercard has a funny looking label. Never seen one like that. Doesn't look like the ones currently available on eBay for 20-30 USD.

I have more contact issues with GBA games in the DS Lite, which I keep around mostly just for GBA game dumping. Sometimes it takes several tries to get a good dump--never the same checksum twice!

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
