Try reinstalling the files. Could have gotten corrupted.
I have a question about the n5. I've had it for awhile and last night in multimedia for my music I set it to "musicnext;shufflepoweroff." I fell asleep and so my playlist played until the end and then "turned off" (the screen was blank and stuff but the battery light was still blinking). Now whenever I go to my music playlist on my DS it gets stuck. I can't use any control buttons or the stylus. Anyone know how to fix it?
Hey, I just bought one of theese, the guys had already installed the software everything worked fine, I then decided that it be fun to delete the software and re-instal in on the card.
I now get stcuk at the loading screen.
Im using the 2gb SanDisk MicroSD that came with the N5.
Know what going on, or how I could fix it?

got the same problem? reinstalling the files doesn't work but it worked fine! i only patched it from v1.16 to v 1.18!
luckily i still got the original files so i can put them back but why does it freeze at loading?
I have an N5 Cart and i dont have any problems with my kingston 2 gb card. But.. I do have a question... anyone know where i can get the cheats file in freaking english??? All my cheats for the action replay or whatever thats built in are in another language...
How to use a Kingston microSD memory with the DSN5
I have a DSN5 that I was using with a SanDisk Transflash 256MB and it worked like a charm, because of the size contraints I decided to purchase a new memory of at least 2GB, and I found a very cheap one from Kingston, when I tried the first time it hang after boot with the word LOADING...
I reviewed everywhere and could not found any tutorial or workaround for this, then I started doing some testing myself and found a way to turn this in a usable microSD card for DSN5.
First thing I compared both cards output from fdisk "p"
From the working 256MB SanDisk card
"Disk /dev/sdd: 252 MB, 252968960 bytes
16 heads, 32 sectors/track, 965 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 512 * 512 = 262144 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdd1 1 965 246989+ b W95 FAT32"
and from the non-working 2GB Kingston card
"Disk /dev/sdd: 2040 MB, 2040528896 bytes
63 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1020 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 3906 * 512 = 1999872 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0c8aac85
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdd4 1 1020 1992029 6 FAT16"
I tried modifying different settings and this are the steps that finally help me have this Kingston memory be able to boot my DS.
notice I'm using Ubuntu
$sudo fdisk /dev/sdd
Command (m for help): m
a toggle a bootable flag
b edit bsd disklabel
c toggle the dos compatibility flag
d delete a partition
l list known partition types
m print this menu
n add a new partition
o create a new empty DOS partition table
p print the partition table
q quit without saving changes
s create a new empty Sun disklabel
t change a partition's system id
u change display/entry units
v verify the partition table
w write table to disk and exit
x extra functionality (experts only)
choose "o" to create a new empty DOS partition table
then choose "n" add a new partition
choose primary partition number 1
exit by pressing "w" write table to disk and exit
then format the partition to DOS file system with sector size of 32
$sudo mkdosfs -s 32 /dev/sdd1
finally copy the DSN5 firmware to the microSD card and insert it to the DSN5, turn on the DS and voila! you can now copy the *.nds files to the card and you can load the games like with any other card.
N5s have perhaps the worst reputation of any of the common cards.
Get a DSTT or AceKard2 if you want cheap, CycoDS if you want the best.
