Help updating a dstt card

Hi, I am in need of some help. I am trying to update the firmware on my dstt, but I am getting totally confused. When I drag say ten games over onto the card and then try it on the ds it only shows that I have two games on the card. I am getting very annoyed. I have just figured out how to work my cyclo card and now this one is winding me up. Do I leave the old firmware on and then add the update, or wipe the card and then add the updated version?

Have a games folder and put them all in there

think you need to remove everything, format card and reinstall new software, then add games back on

The games don't go directly on the card. Drag them into the folder that is there (the one that contains all the program files). You can drag the update there too, it will automatically update the card.

No, you don't need to do this. I never have anyway.

Thanks so much for your replies so far. I did create a folder, and I did manage to format the sd card - still didn't work. I managed to get two new games on the card to work, but the others wouldn't. The games are all sourced from the same place so I doubt that there's a problem with the games themselves. I couldn't understand whether I needed to leave the old software on, and then just add the update to it, or erase the old firmware and just use the update instead. Sorry for my questions!

Thanks so much - I remember you helped me last time. The other card was for my father-in-law and that works great, but it was a while ago now and I had forgotten what to do, plus I have never used the update before.

My thread doesn't have info about updating.

I think it's easier to simply remove the old files and replace with the new ones.

click on the games folder and if some of the games are shown as in a brown folder you will need to double click to open the folder and extraxt the game into the games folder(even tho the brown folder is already in the games folder)

That was my reason for posting your thread (should have explained better) gives full details of how to start! :thumbsup:

Thanks again everyone, I just followed thesaint's guide and one game out of the two I tried doesn't work, it is a new game so I think I need the update. I'll try that again and let you know how I get on.

Well, I managed to download the latest version - 1.16 and a few new games are working on that. I can't get professor Layton to work though, and there's a few other games that don't work, but I'm wondering now whether it is the games. All this just to shut up my two kids!
