I very stupidly formatted my NDSTT card or rather the micro SD card with the running software on it and now a white screen with a red SD card picture stating MENU? appears. I;ve lost all the games, which I can get back again, but I would like to know how to get the card working again please?

Stuck on Loading Screen
This usually indicates that the software kernel on the micro sd memory card has become corrupted. It can also happen if the micro sd memory card is overloaded with games, music and video files etc. The solution is to reinstall the kernel software on the micro sd card and ensure the micro sd memory card is not overloaded. Leave about 25% memory free.
download SDformatter and format the sd card with that, place all the files on there, none in folders..
Recuva (pronounced "recover") is a freeware Windows utility to restore files that have been accidentally deleted from your computer. This includes files emptied from the Recycle bin as well as images and other files that have been deleted by user error from digital camera memory cards or MP3 players. It will even bring back files that have been deleted from your iPod, or by bugs, crashes and viruses!
Put the memory card into an USB card reader and plug it into the USB port in your computer, then run the Recuva program.
Simple to use interface - just click 'Scan' and choose the files you want to recover
Easy to use filter for results based on file name/type

Restores files from external ZIP drives, Firewire and USB Hard drives
That sounds very unusual, not on the list of normal errors. I'd be worried about a fake card as a genuine DSTT shouldn't cause wide instability like that.
Try reformatting the micro sd card and loading back on the correct software. You should be able to download the correct software for your DSTT off the official www.ndstt.com website. If it doesn't work still then I'm afraid you might have a fake card.
If you suspect that you have unstable fake clone version you can get a genuine card there too. http://www.dscardworld.com I managed to find this site after I got burned at a few others. Loved having my emails responded to because I had loads of questions, and they were quick to ship it. They test each card before sending them. US based support and shipping I believe.
Have you put the firmware onto the micro sd card aswell. You will need this so it will load the games.
If not go to www.ndstt.com
left click the DOWNLOAD tab along the top of the screen
Scroll down to TTMenu Kernel v1.17, 2009-01-06 new There should be several languages listed click the English one then click the save button on the pop-up box. (firmware version 1.17)
Save this to your desktop or where ever you like... Desktop is easier.
You will need to un-zip this file. Then all you have to do is copy the 3 programs onto the Micro sd card. I would make a NEW FOLDER in there calling it games or something similar... just keeps it tidy.
What i would suggest is to take the micro sd card and delete the menu folder and the menutt.dat and anything else associated with the main menu settings. Drag and drop the games folder or games and saves to the desktop and then format the sd card in FAT32.
I appreciate this may seem a little extreme but i have had quite a lot of experience with NDS flash cartridges and the problem you describe usually happens when the menu.tt file becomes corrupt.
Once the sd card is formatted, re install all the nesessary software (you should have these 3 files on the sd card :
TTmenu folder ttmenu.dat ttmenu.sys but, DO NOT put any games onto it until you have placed it into the nds and turned it on allowing the TTcard to build a menu for the games to be loaded from.
