    my sons ds will not read any game either it says no ds card inserted for multiple games such as mario cart, star wars lego, and mario/sonic olympic games

    Has a game been inserted into the slot the wrong way at any point? If so, you may have damaged (bent) one of the pins inside the DS game slot. You can check by shining a torch into the empty slot. The pins should be aligned.

hi there this should help ye out

Playing multiplayer with one Game Card:
Certain Nintendo DS games require only one player have a copy of the game to play multiplayer. Those without a copy of the game will need to download the game information from the player that has the game in their system.

This feature is available on games that have this icon on their packaging:

    To download game information:

  1. Insert the Game Card into the DS Game Card Slot on one system and slide it into place until it clicks. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.

  2. Tap the screen using the stylus when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears. If the host DS system's Startup Mode is set to
    • Automatic. The game's menu will appear.
    • Manual. Tap on the box for the Nintendo DS Card Slot using the stylus to start the game.

  3. Turn on the other Nintendo DS systems. For each of these systems, when the main menu appears, tap on the "DS Download Play" icon on the right, middle side of the screen to display list of available games.

  4. Tap the title of the game to begin the download.

  5. See the individual game's multiplayer instructions for additional game play information.


  • Playing multiplayer with multiple Game Cards
    Games that require each player to have a copy of the Game Card inserted into the Nintendo DS will feature this icon:
    multi_pak.gif Because each individual game title has its own method for setting up multiplayer games, you will need to consult the instruction manual for that particular title.

When games are inserted into console they will not play


If you are inserting a DS card, be sure there are no foreign articles inside the slot. Blow into the DS card slot to clear any debris. Also be sure you are inserting the card all the way in until it clicks. I've also found that if you're powering on a game, and you bump, grasp or touch the ds card as the DS is powering on, that can cause it to not read games.

Check the actual DS card itself and carefully look at the exposed contacts on the circuit board. Be sure none of them are scratched, damaged or otherwise. A scratch can damage a contact, thus preventing proper data read.

If anything was spilled onto the DS card, be sure it is thoroughly cleaned with a damp cloth (no cleeaning chemicals!) If you immerse the DS card, or pour liquids on it, that may damage it as well.

Same points hold true for inserting a Gameboy Advance game (if you have a DS or a DS Lite. The DSi and DSiXL do not have Gameboy Advance slots.

If you turn on the DS and nothing happens, try a different DS Card. If it only happens with that one particular game (or games) your DS cards are damaged or need cleaning. If all your games are not playing, there is a problem with your DS. Try your games in a friend's DS just to make sure. You'll probably have to send the unit to Nintendo for repair, or take it to an authorized repair center.

MY NDS lite wont read DS games but will read


there might be something wrong with the card reader. Or something wrong with your card. Try cleaning them with something (not a tissue, that will make it worse). If that doesn't work, it's probably something wrong with the internal wiring and such, so there's not too much you can do about it

While playing the screen goes black and says that the game card has been removed- shut ds off and it does not acknowledge the game


There must be something wrong with the game. Turn the DS off and blow on your game then blow in Slot 1. Put the game card in and it should work.

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.
