    Problems with dstt??

    I ordered 2 dstt cards from deal extreme, put one in my ds lite this morning now my ds wont switch on, i have just had a call from a friend who had the 2nd card a few days ago that now his ds wont switch on.

    Is there a problem with dstt cards? if not this is a warning to people

    That doesn't sound very good, you paid for a DS bricker?

    Me too!!

    i heard that there was some problems with fake dstt cards. but got slated when i suggested that deal extreme were selling them. i recently ordered some form china and they are fine. apparently they are fake if they have a gold dot on the underside. (or something like that) did they come in a box or in a plastic sleeve?

    i also got slated when i suggested they may b fake from deal extreme but ive had both boxed and plastic sleeve from them! x

    i think the boxed ones are the old style and shouldnt be sold now (not sure why) im sure there there was some info on the site about the fake ones. try this link. [url]www.ndstt.com[/url]

    I believe this is a known fault with fake cards blowing an internal component. I can't find a link though.

    Anyway of telling if they fake? Also your DS totally knakerd?

    so have i:?

    ouch. i didnt realise the fake ones were doing that. ive sold around 100 of these things in my local paper. glad i havnt had any off these. its probalby nintendo introducing them to stop people buying them.....

    i think if you look underneath there is a gold dot. im sure i read it somewhere......

    If the DS won't turn on it may well be the fuse that's blown, it's a DIY fix, albeit not an easy one and a steady hand is required!

    what is it the dstt cards that has done it? or did they all coincidently blow???

    did you check the underside to see if there was any gold dots?

    did you look at post 9 and the link, that will show you the fakes, i have an apparent fake, and been in use for well over 6 months

    I have one in my shopping basket at dx that I nearly bought yesterday but was waiting until some paypal funds came in. This sounds bad - I've bought several in the past from dx and never had - or heard of - such a problem. Hope these are isolated incidents but will be watching this thread...

    me too, just promised to sort two out of my little nephews for xmas

    just looked at the pic. from what i can remember there was round dots on the fake ones, on the underside. youres didnt have that on the gold. i wonder what caused them to knacker youre ds?

    OP, you sure you and your friend don't have excessive electricity in your bodies ... or maybe both live near a nuclear power station that is about to blow?

    yes there is a round gold dot on the apparent fakes, from the pic posted here you cant see anything as the sd card is in it, and you wouldnt be able to se it anyway

    i see. so its basically hit or miss then if you get a fake one?

    Just to update, i bought a dstt card for myself from deal extreme with sd card which i've had for weeks, i then bought 2 without sd cards, i put one of these in my ds this morning and it blew straight away, my mate was using his in his phat he put it in his lite and blew straight away also with the phat blowing few hrs later

    Looking at my original card and this new one, there is a round circle just can be seen, will try and get a pic both together.

    Have not contacted dx yet, after looking at post 9 it came in the sleeve sep 2008 packaging, it's hard getting a picture but putting them both together on the new card i can see a faint circle where on my old one i cant.

    It will be a rogue card, it could happen with a genuine card or a "supposed" fake.

    I have been saying for months that DSTT cards are built shoddily. I myself stopped buying them, and pay the extra £2 for Acekard2's.

    Look where i marked on the top card, on my original it isn't there and it has caused me no problems

    if you break it open and its a gold circle then i think you got a fake!!!!! either way you are out off pocket....
