Get a cotton swab, dip it in rubbing alcohol, and stick it on to one end of the slot, pull it out, move down a little bit, and repeat. DO NOT stick it in and slide it across the slot as this will damage the pins inside the slot. if you need to clean slot-2 (for GBA games, on the bottom) you will need to flatten the swab with pliers of other such tool

    oh, the ds card can either be cleaned by a cotton ball dipped in alcohol or by use of a very thin eraser

Sounds like your system needs to either be cleaned or a new card slot installed on the unit. there are many shops on fixya if you check the directory that will help you out.

DS Lite Console: my nintendo ds lite won't read game cards...


try compressed air.
more then likely its a hardware issue. try getting an R4DS card and download games from www.filestube.com if you dont want to repair it.
you can have 50+ games on an sd card and not have to lug around all those games anymore

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.

put the sd micro card into your computer with a USB reader and open to read the files, then click on games and see what games are loaded. You can download ds lite games from the internet and use drag and drop to load the load the games onto the sd card.

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.

Ds lite not reading game card


you will actually have to physically repair your ds with soldering tools, my suggestion for anyone experiencing this problem, buy a DSi or a new DS Lite. It is already out and better than the DS Lite. Your DS may as well be broken.

Nintendo ds lite won't read card


had this problem, i looked into where the game goes and one of the little metal teeth was bent, so i took a long toothpick and gently pushed it back over now it works fine. Be careful that you dont break it off though.

Maybe it's the game card, sometimes if it's dirty or not insirted propaly it doesn't work or freezes, try gently blowing the dust off or reinsirting it.
