    My games are starting to freeze up uncomfortably often, such as DQ IX. Going into buildings, going into battles, anything that might require reading off the microSD card sometimes freezes.

    Alos, many times when I boot up the bad boy, "MicroSD card could not be found!"

    I have to take the SD card out and put it back in.

    I tested this with other SD cards, hoping it was the SD card. A simple 11 dollar fix!
    But, they had the same problems.

    I use the Panasonic SD Formatter, still with no luck.


    After years of humble service, it looks like this bad boy just may have to be replaced.


    I was looking at Acekard, as it's cheap. And, usually I'd look into another CycloDS, since I enjoyed the compatibility, but so many games that have Anti-piracy are pretty much insta-cracked nowadays.


    Or is this a commonly fixed problem? It just started going this about a month ago, and progressively getting worse!


    Edit: Also, on RealHotStuff.
    The "Free shipping" optoin. This means "I come 2 weeks from China"?

    I recommend the Acekard 2.1 for you. Or, if you plan on getting a DSi anytime soon, the 2i.

    I thought DQ IX had anti-piracy in it?
    But if you think your CycloDS is acting up, yeah definitely go buy an Acekard 2i, they're great and they're very affordable.

    I wouldn't buy from RHS though, there's hearsay that they sell a bad batch of AK2i's or something, and they're not that great a price.
    Shoptemp has them $3 cheaper.
    Their free shipping takes about 1-2 weeks from Hong Kong if you're lucky.

    If you have a Cyclo, then you may as well get the DSTWO. Otherwise they might look down on you in the Cyclo forums. Think of it as the new CycloDS.

    RHS ships from the US. Leetmod or SimplyMods are better choices if you want to buy from the US. Otherwise ShopTemp are fine.

    More specifically, RHS ships out of upper New Jersey. Whenever I order it only takes me 2 days to receive the item as I live in central NJ.

    SCDS2 FTW. Bought one even if my Cyclo is still alive and it works great. The only thing is that it consume a lot of battery (also, my DS is pretty old. Should replace the battery.)
