Sounds like a dirty connection or a bad chip to me.

Try simply blowing into the slot and along the chip's connections before inserting the chip. If that doesn't work, and you are feeling brave, use lint free cloth (available at staples) and some Isopropyl (rubbing) Alcohol/Acetone (nail polish remover) to LIGHTLY swab the connection. Let dry completely, then insert chip.

If that doesn't do the trick, I would declare either the chip or the DS bad. Does the DS work with other chips? If it doesn't, chances are the connections between the game chip and the DS circuit board have been loosened to the point where the DS is nonfunctional.

Ds lite is reading system date error


Known problem with the NDS Cards but here is a temporary fix:Take out the NDS cards and start up DS without them
  • Tap the symbol in the middle of the screen at the bottom that looks like a DS.
  • Tap the blue box with a calender and clock in.
  • Change the date a month or two back.
  • Restart DS with NDS cards in.
Even though this is temporary the people at NDS are working for a solution. But until then you might just have to keep putting the date back.

My nintendo ds lite game card wont load. what can i do? Its a DSTT card. The screen loads with all the health and saftey info and it shows what game i can play but when i choose the game the top screen...


It's either bad connection between memory card and DSTT or it needs a DSTT rom update or....your DS has an issue. I have several DS's that are all quite happy to play various game cards but I have one that does just as you are describing. I have cleaned it, checked it, tried everything but it just wont work. I have decided in my case is probably a CPU or DS firmware problem.
If the DS is a copy then I would suggest changing the motherboard (£50 on the net, or replacement copies are out there for £35 but there will be no guarantee with those)

How to i get to play two players on the Nintendo ds lite


You can play multiplayer games with a Nintendo DS Lite even if you don’t possess a copy of the game. If one of your friends has a multiplayer game card, they can use their Nintendo DS Lite as a host for the game session and you can join the multiplayer game.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Nintendo DS Lite
    Using One Card to Host the Game
  1. Step 1 Look on the game’s packaging for the "Multiplayer" icon. If the game requires only one player to have a copy of the game, the icon will show two DS Lites: a DS Lite with a black screen transmitting waves to a DS Lite with a white screen. Below the two DS Lites is a range of numbers which indicates how many players the game can support.
  2. Step 2 Put the game card in the Nintendo DS Lite that is acting as the host for the multiplayer game session and start it up.
  3. Step 3 Have the other players turn on their systems. They will use the main menu screen to access the "DS Download Play" icon. They need to tap the icon to begin downloading the game information from the host DS Lite.
  4. Step 4 Begin playing when all of the systems have finished downloading the game information from the host.
  5. Multiple Cards for Multiple Players
  6. Step 1 Look at the "Multiplayer" icon. If every player in the game session needs a copy of the game in order to play, the icon will show two DS Lites, both with black screens, transmitting waves toward each other. A range of numbers is under this graphic and indicates how many people can play at one time.
  7. Step 2 Read the game's instruction manual on how to set up the game session. The steps required vary by company and sometimes by title within the same company.

I bought a memory card for my ds but will not load up


You bought a memory card for your DS...? Why would you do that, every DS has a built in memory system, Im not sure is nintendo even sells memory cards for the DS. But if it fits in like a DS game cart, and then your screen goes blank, then the problem could be your DS can't read the game cart, or the game cart is bad. You should try blowing into the memory card, and trying again. Or you could try resetting the memory card, by holding the A and B buttons while the game cart is inside.

Hope that helped, Good Luck. Plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz rate.

Games will not list in DS even though downloaded onto SD Card.


Try plugging the memory card into your computer and checking that the files still exist. It is possible to delete files from the memory card whilst it is plugged into your DS.
