Since most ds's don't use SD card, I'd say contact the uhh, maker of the card you're using? Chances are your software is bad, needs updating, etc... Or your SD card could be bad... try another and see if it still happens.

When games are inserted into console they will not play


If you are inserting a DS card, be sure there are no foreign articles inside the slot. Blow into the DS card slot to clear any debris. Also be sure you are inserting the card all the way in until it clicks. I've also found that if you're powering on a game, and you bump, grasp or touch the ds card as the DS is powering on, that can cause it to not read games.

Check the actual DS card itself and carefully look at the exposed contacts on the circuit board. Be sure none of them are scratched, damaged or otherwise. A scratch can damage a contact, thus preventing proper data read.

If anything was spilled onto the DS card, be sure it is thoroughly cleaned with a damp cloth (no cleeaning chemicals!) If you immerse the DS card, or pour liquids on it, that may damage it as well.

Same points hold true for inserting a Gameboy Advance game (if you have a DS or a DS Lite. The DSi and DSiXL do not have Gameboy Advance slots.

If you turn on the DS and nothing happens, try a different DS Card. If it only happens with that one particular game (or games) your DS cards are damaged or need cleaning. If all your games are not playing, there is a problem with your DS. Try your games in a friend's DS just to make sure. You'll probably have to send the unit to Nintendo for repair, or take it to an authorized repair center.

Can't save or erase


Hmm, this can be several problems.

It may be that the game is damaged or the DS isn't reading the game card correctly.

This is usually due to dirt or other artifacts on the metal contacts on the bottom back side of the game card.
These metal contacts need to touch the metal contacts inside the DS in order for it to read.

It is also common that these get scratched up and harder for some DS machines to read.

Best ways to deal with this is you use a small Q-tip and dust off the contacts on the card.
The contacts in the DS can get dirty, but are hard to clean.
If you must, I suggest using a can of air to dust it out.
A Q-tip would only make things worse as they often break apart and the DS game card contacts are hard to get at without opening the DS itself.

If those fail then there's one final solution.
Send the game card to Nintendo for repairs.
If it is no longer under warrenty it'll cost you a fee, but they'll repair or replace the card for you.

I'd suggest checking the card in differnt DS machines to see if its just your DS not reading it right or not.

A good cleaning usually does the trick though.

Hope that helps.
Good luck fixing it.
