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.

On the phantom hourglass it says... data could not be read.Please turn the power off and reinsert the game card.I did what it said.I even cleaned it.I need help.


WARNING: This will erase all saved game data!

As the game boots up, press "A,B,X,Y,L, and R" all at the same time to erase all saved game data. This resets the game to all defaults and it's like it's a brand new cartridge. Stinks you lose your save data but at least you get to play again.

Saved data could not be read?


This just happened to me. I used a tissue and gently wiped out the slot- then blew out any dust/debris with my breath. Gave a gentle wipe to the pins on the game card as well with a tissue. Restarted a few times and now games are working fine.

Nintendo ds, can not erase data message


Where did you buy this game? Is it from a reliable source? There's been known fake DS games that don't work. And usually the case is the game shows a message "can not access saved data. please turn of power and re-insert game". This is actually my first time with a case where it can't erase the data. Try contacting the previous owner.

"could not erase data"


is this a multi card or a normal game, if its a multi card for e.g R4 or Ncard you need to change the save format settings, but if its a normal game one of the teeth could be damaged or even a glitch, if thats it then you need to take the game back to where you bought it from (depending on how long you have had it between 6 to 8 months)
