    Last night, I was playing with my DS and I loaded some homebrew.

    I popped open Bunjallo and then proceeded to use DSOrganize.

    Bunjallo wouldn't load any pages and the ABXY buttons didn't do anything in DSOragnize. Moonshell wouldn't load. All of this was perfect before. Retail games worked fine.

    I took my Supercard DSTwo and tested it out. The same problem occurred with moonshell and some of the apps didn't work. The GBA emulator failed to load, The DS game menu would load and then go back to the menu screen, and the SNES emulator stopped scrolling at a certain point in the select menu. The scrolling problem occurred in the videoplayer and ebook reader.

    This morning, I put the SCDS2 into my brother's DS and it worked perfectly. So I put it into my DS and it started working again.

    EDIT: The first card I was using was the DSTT. It worked perfectly today. I didn't put it into my brother's DS.

    Belive it or not but yes it works 90% of the time, but I recommend blowing it with compressed air.

    What I tend to do instead of blowing on anything is to insert/eject the cart multiple times to sort of scrub the contacts. This has always worked for me.

    It's another option to try if you don't want to blow on it.

    That's probably why it ended up working. I ejected and re-inserted quite a bit last night.

    Can this happen in the microSD slot too?
