    Ummmm, when I load up the Ak, it goes to the loading and then just a white screen. Is it bricked?

    perhaps, but it is something that is perfectly fixable.

    read the guide for unbricking:

    your issue could also be a contact issue or a corrupt msd card. it is hard to make suggestions without knowing what debug steps you have already tried.

    When I start the ds, Deep Labryinth comes up, I start it. System file is missing.

    To delete it, make sure that if you're using a microSD to SD adapter, the lock switch is un the UNLOCKED position (typically closest to the contacts).

    To extract it, try extracting to your desktop or another folder first, then try moving the folder to the SD. Again, if your memory card is locked, you won't be able to do that.

    If you're not using an adapter, the microSD might be stuffed. My best friend gave me a 16GB microSD that suffered water damage - the card is still readable, but shows as locked, regardless of whether I use a microSD to SD adapter or a microSD reader.

    Edit - also, on the card, right click the __aio folder and akmenu4.nds file and make sure that the read only attribute is unchecked for both of them (not checked and not with a square in it)

    Edit 2 - ^ if it is, uncheck it, when it asks if you want to apply it only to the current folder or all files and subfolders, choose the all files and subfolders one (or whatever the nearest match to that is)

    Plasma Dragoon is right, but also if you cannot modify any files on the card your reading device may be broken as well, it has happened to me a few times. ARe you using a USB or SD card adapter? Try a USB one, the SD card adapters have proved very untrustworthy for me.

    yep, if you lock the SB adapter, the microSD could end up in read-only mode. read-only microSDs suck hairy balls. they're almost always untouchable afterwards.
