Hello,

I have a supercard SD and an original NDS. I haven't used in years but got it out the other day to start playing again.

I remember I needed to press some buttons when turning it on to boot into it but i forget what. I've tried pressing all 4 round buttons and the screen just goes white.

Is there any way to check the flashcard is still working? Can't seem to boot into it,

thanks

If DS software is detected in SLOT-2, flashme will automatically run it. Otherwise, it will launch the normal DS firmware. To override this behavior (always boot to the firmware), hold the SELECT button when you power on.

To force it to boot from SLOT-2, hold A+B+X+Y.

(no-autoboot version): SLOT-2 is only booted when the SELECT button is held.

More likely is the SD card slot is a bit touchy or the pins are dirty. Clean those, or just eject and insert it a whole bunch of times.

For what it is worth though it will likely not do you that much good -- the GBA slot side of things stopped being updated for DS games in mid 2009 and the GBA side of supercards was never that hot.
