Listen this will work. TRUST ME.
If you DS says "no ds card detected" but it will detect regular games, there is nothing wrong with the ds or the card. Take a piece of paper, cut it the size of the R4 card (a little longer) then fold it over and place it on the R4 card (same side as sticker on R4card) then put them both in at the same time. This will push the R4 card closer to the pins and it will work. keep trying. Took 3 tries for me and it worked. The idea here is to push the R4 card closer to the side and therefore making a better connection.
THIS WILL FIX IT.
my son's DS had the same problem this week. With the DS turned off, ,I pushed the game in and held it right down while turning the DS on. The game registered and I let go of the game and it clicked in to place. The next time I tried the game it registered straight away. Good luck!
First turn your DS off.
While the DS is off, press A and B at the same time. While still holding, turn the DS on. Then when the Nintendo DS logo appears, press Start and Select at the same time, aswell as A and B. Hold those 4 buttons down for about 20-30 seconds. Then while STILL holding down those 4 buttons, turn the DS off. Turn it back on with no buttons pushed.
When you put the game in, after it clicks hold it down and do not let go. turn on your ds and see if it reads it. If it doesn't, check the pins in the slot 1 slot and maybe just put some water on a q-tip and wipe them gently. If it reads when you hold it down maybe just tape it that way or something. Check the game also to see if there are scratches on the gold part. If this all doesn't work then I am out of solutions. Or you could send it to nintendo because if they can't fix it, you get a new DS.
