Sorry, if you game is one of the "EARLY" made game, such as the color of the game cartrige (GBA) lighter then the regular game cartige, this might be fake or a faulty one or it is just too old at first made that it is not compatable.

Experience, i had pokemon emerald and this kept happening too. I know how you feel.

Games are deleted


That is a problem with your individual game cartridges. The console itself does not store any memory, it is only designed to play the games. The game cartridge is what stores all memory. Don't get rid of your SP just yet.

My son I think has deleted all games ...how can I restore them


Greetings,

The game data for GBA SP games are held in the actually game cartridge itself. It is not stored within the GBA. If the data from the games has been deleted, he would have to restart each game from the beginning. There is no way to restore lost saved data once it is gone. Thank you for using FixYa! =) If I helped, please give me a rating.

Can't save any games.


Okay, your games don't save on your game boy itself, they actually save on the cartridges. The way it maintains the save is a small battery inside the game. It sounds like the battery is going or is completely dead. You can try to manually replace the battery inside the game, or take it to a Nintendo retailer and see if they can't replace it for you. Hope this helps you out :)

DS Lite - game boy advance game - delete saved data?


Do so how you normally would when playing the GBA game on a GBA (It best be a GBA game, because DS and DS Lites cannot communicate to older Game Boy games), go through the menus (on the game) and delete the files. It's not a matter of the DS having the problem it's the game.

I've went through the menu's and deleted the game but my game still has "corrupted data":

First, do all you can do, clean out the slot in the DS Lite, and the cartridge (with a damp, NOT SOAKING WET, cotton swab), and try the game again. Start a new save file, save it after a ways, and try to load it again. IF it -STILL- has a corrupted save file problem, then it is time to bring it to the seller or the manufacturer.

The seller: Telling the seller what's happening is great. BUT SHOWING the seller that the save data never loads really helps! Customers can say quite a few things to Sellers just to get a new game or their money back, but showing them is pretty much proof. No, you don't -HAVE- to show them, but if the seller is -that- skeptical, it may be wise to bring your DS along with you.

The manufacturer: All games have a Technical support call number, also going to nintendo's main site,www.nintendo.com/, and going straight to their technical support pages helps too. Sending it in will warrant a little wait time, but if done correctly you will receive a fixed or new game from them as well.

Game Cartridge


They do have internal batteries in the cart. You can try opening up the cart using a 3.8mm (usually) security bit. Most of the units have a physical battery that you can replace but some have a soldered unit that cannot be replaced.
