Can't Delete


I'm not sure there is a way to delete all data. One way might be to hit A, B, X, Y, L, and R, but I can't guarantee that will work. If not, just let Amazon know that the data cannot be deleted and they can just overwrite the save data with a new game.

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.

Deleting


Okay, first thing, this game does not actually have an option for deleting saved games. Silly, I know.

That being said, there is -a- way to delete saved data, though I do not recommend it because of possible damage to your cart. The best option is to simply start a new game and save it over your last.

If you still feel the need to delete your saved data, you can follow this procedure "at your own risk".

Start the game.
Load the saved file you want deleted.
Once the game is up, go to save the game again.
Select your save and hit "Save".
Now eject the game while its saving.
Restart the game, and try to load your save slot.
You should receive an error about the save being corrupted and deleted.

I saved one file twice and erased my first file by mistake.


I'm sorry to say, but your diary1 data is gone for good.

The way a save file works is it takes a data picture of that moment in the game, so everything you have done is remembered. However, another part of the saving process is it erases the data that was being stored there before, because when you tell it to save, you are telling it, even if by accident, that that old data is obsolete and you no longer need it, you need this data here now that you are giving it.

And unfortunately, games aren't like computers with recycling bins that you can go into and retrieve something you accidentally deleted. There is only so much memory in a game, so it can't waste space with something you told it to get rid of.

I feel your pain, I've done the same thing in my Harvest Moon game on the GBA. I've also deleted my Pokemon Colloseum file by accident that had my level 98 Blaziken on it. All you can do is start over.

Game will not load after being touching the start button.


You can try wiping the data on the cartridge completely. I looked in the manual and there's no information on how to do this. It's usually something involving holding down two or three buttons while starting the game. If you can wipe all the data it should be like you have a new game. My suggestion is to call Nintendo. I'm sure they'll do their best to help you out. Don't bother mentioning to them that the game is used, they might not be pleased about that.

Game data retrievel?


You can't get the data back, some DS Games have a really low memory capacity usually 1 slot so you can't get it back.
