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.

How do I delete a stored game in progress on Harvest In The Heartland?


Select system settings, then select data management, Select the "System Memory" tab to delete files from the Nintendo DS system memory. Select the "SD Card" tab to delete files from an SD card. A list of saved files on the system memory or SD card will appear. Select the saved file you want to erase from the list. A prompt will appear.
Choose "Delete" from the prompt and confirm you want to delete the file. The saved file will be immediately erased from the system memory or SD card of the Nintendo DS.

I'd say there's a good chance you have a defective unit. Your best bet would probably be to exchange it for a new one, and if possible, test it while you're at the store to make sure.

Memory loss


Quick, check every menu on the game. This is what happened to a friend who had Mario Kart. "Deleat data" was accadently selected when that person was trying to edit something. The data was lost. Check all menus. The wrong thing could have been selected. If you cannot find a way to deleat data, then make sure you never turned off the DS, DS light, DSi, or whatever when saving. If it was turned off when saving, then the following can happen: Nothing, Data Erase, or data destruction. Data destruction means the cartridge is ruined. That didn't happen to you, though. I am sorry, but you must start over.

How can i erase saved data on Zelda DS?


well you can go to the options..that should be there and go delete. Or you go to start and you select new game and you start playing again and then you go to save blah blah blah blah and then it should ask are you sure youwant to overwrite file and you say yes and vwaila it should be solved!!! another way is to mess it up so while your saving your current game it should say dont touch the power button or something well turn the game on and of 7-8 times and it should mess it up enough. this might cause other issues though so....up to you.
