SOURCE: problem whit open my acekard2i whit dsi an error has occured

Your acekard is blocked by dsi due to nintendo latest updates. You will have to reformat your micro sd using panasonic SDFormatter and install at the root the latest firmware AKAIO download from and the latest updates firmware fix just released 8/17/09 from mediafire ak2ifw_update_14.rar (3.05 MB). Your root should contain these files __aio, ak2ifw_update_14_DSi, ak2ifw_update_14_DSL, akmenu4.nds, readme_AKAIO. Now take you card and update it with an nintendo ds lite or phat by inseting the card and when you see the file update click on it and it will be updated and work again in your dsi. I just experienced this and the updates work if you know how to apply them. Good luck!!! Danny phantom icon appears instead of A2K

SOURCE: My R4i card comes up with the error message when i try to load it

If you updated you DSI firmware to 1.4, nintendo have stopped the use of flash cards in the uodate, i got my r4 through the post 4 days ago and i had already updated to 1.4 and get the same message. So far i haven found any help with rolling back to 1.3 or getting an update for the r4i software to work. Lets hope it happens soon!

In short you DSi is Not broken, its just been updated to 1.4.

What is going on with my LR button?

My condolences for your loss. :P

The Nintendo DSi's L and R buttons are notorious for breaking. While the best and quickest way to fix them is to replace the entire back assembly (or just the ribbon cable, but that would require a lot of precision if you want to get it all aligned perfectly), a trick we all use is to cover the entire button with your mouth and kinda blow into it. It's probably bad for the system or something, but most of us don't care as long as it works. As a hardcore DSi user, there's my advice.

By the way, if you liked Flipnote Hatena, I've recreated it so that you can use it directly on the Nintendo DSi. I call it Sudomemo. Maybe you'll enjoy it? sudomemo net

Wishing you a wonderful day and some working L and R buttons,

Hi, could you help me please? recently my stupid nephew tried connecting the internet to his dsi and then he switched the dsi off, when he tried to switch the dsi ON it said: "an error has occurred...

Close the DS, turn the volume all the way down and then press a few more times, reopen, hold down power switch. It should turn off.

If it still doesn't work then it look like it was trying to do an update and was shut off while updating.

For a Guarantee fix you must change your DSi motherboard, they cost around $40 on ebay.

Ref: DSI Bought 3DS communicator and now I'm receiving this error message " An error has occurred. Press and hold the Power Button to turn the system off. Please see the Nintendo DSI Operations...

Simple fix... stop pirating and buy the games.
The message ''An error has occurred'' is a typical message which many users have encountered on their DSi, DSi XL, 3DS and Wii. It happens when either a blocked modchip or flashcart is detected by the console.

The L button on my sons dsi does not work.. Any suggestions on fixing?

Try blowing into it. Form a seal with your lips and blow. If that does not work, it may still be under warranty. Send it in for it to be fixed.
I hope I helped, please rate this if it helped.

I put my R4i gold card in the slot but it just says "An error occurred.Press and hold the Power Button to turn the system off.Please see the Nintendo DSi Operations Manuel for help troubleshooting."

Since your actually not supposed to use the gold card according to the government the dsi might be a stubborn one and the gold card info cant get through or your gold card might be faulty. The most foolproof solution is to get a R4i sdhc in a red box. Then again you can try blowing into the card insert or blowing into the sandisk slot.

Good luck! :)
