This works! Ok, the problem is, there is some kind of dirt/film on the inside of slot that is causing no connection between the game and the unit. What I did, is take any game, and push in and out of the slot fast and repeatedly. This causes a cleaning action to take place. After doing this about 20 times, try and place the game in and turn the unit on. Then the game sould work. If not, take an old game, if possible, and place some rubbing alcohol on the connecting strips, and push in and out of the slot fast and repeatedly. Then blow in the slot to dry, and try the game again. This should work. Good luck!

Hello, my daughters' DS Lite does not seem to recognise any DS game but does recognise GBA games. Any ideas?


she may have gotten a game wet or there is a dust build-up in the slot for ds games, she could've also bent a pin in the slot that connects to the game. You may have to send it in for repair.

Nintendo ds does not recognise games


Turn off your DS and take out the game card. Blow on the metal part of the game card and blow into the game slot in your DS. Put the game back in and turn on your DS. This is to clear away anything that might have been on your game or in your DS game slot.

Try getting the latest version of the firmware for ur ds. After u download the firmware, put ur card into card reader. Use computer to delete everything except ur games. Then put the firmware that you downloaded into the card. See if it works.

If you are using R4, you should put the game in the slot then start the ds, otherwise it won't work. That all i know lol!!

DS recognises game but won't play


check the connectors inside cartridge slot inside ds, verify if they are all aligned ( | | | | | ).

if any contact is bend, you must align it, also check for dirt or rust inside slot.

sometimes you will need to clean contacts inside. you must buy a cleaning kit to do it.

Maybe it has got something in the nintendo games slot. My one kept not working and when I cleaned that slot it worked, there was a bit of tissue in it.

Displays "no game pack inserted"


Take the game out then blow really hard into the game slot. Re-insert game - it should work :-)
