    ... Like my topic says, I got the DSi, got an AceKard, got a microSDHC 8GB card, got the bloody card reader, and I'm kinda stuck. I've gone over the wiki and so far I've put '_aio', and 'akmenu4.nds' into the memory card, and I had formatted it as well before. What do I do next? The guide is really sorta confusing and I don't understand exactly what I need next. All I want to do now is just download games and play, can anyone direct me to a guide or help me out?

    Download games and put it on the card. Then go play.

    Yes, that is the ultimate goal here, but I don't know how to go about doing that...

    Download the game you want.
    If it's an archive, extract it (should end with .nds).
    Put the game on the MicroSD card.
    Put the MicroSD card in the Acekard.
    Put the Acekard in the DS.
    Start the DS and select the game from the list.

    Where exactly do I get the games from? I've been running up and down this site and I can't find the downloads section labelled 'Games' And as for extracting it onto the MicroSD, where do I put it? Just drop it on like I did to the other two folders or do I put them in some specific folder?

    You won't find any retail game roms on this site. It's against the rules to ask.
    You can just create a new folder called GAMES or w/e you want to organize it better, but it really doesn't matter too much where you put the games.

    Google is your friend. Remember, asking for ROM's on GBAtemp is against the rules.

    Just out of curiousity, I do hope from the OP you meant an Acekard 2i and not an Acekard 2.1. Only an Acekard 2i will work on a DSi.
