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.

Maybe just email Nintendo and let them know that you would like the instructions to the games. They will most likely email them to you.

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.

Don't have instructions. Can I get instructions on line?


Its not an easy thing to raise that kid.

Here is a review of the title:
http://ds.about.com/od/gamereviews/gr/mybabygirlrevie.htm

Unfortunately either due to the fact that the game was just recently released or the target audience for the game, there are no online guides that I could find.

Nintendo DS Lite


Hey rorufer,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, Nintendo products made for use within the U.S. are not desgined for overseas use. This unfortunately means that games purchased within the U.S. may not function correctly when used in a DS Lite purchased in Europe.

Some of the most common reasons why this restriction would be in place are potential language barriers (for warnings, operating instructions and disclaimers), as well as differing government regulations between the two regions regarding the product's warranty or potential safety/electrical concerns.

While some users may report cross-compatiblity between foreign consoles and select game titles, this cannot be guaranteed in every instance. Nintendo itself has suggested only purchasing games for the DS Lite (and other consoles) in the region where the DS Lite itself is purchased.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

    First DS (system you are transferring the ID from)

  1. Turn on any Nintendo WFC-compatible game and access the WFC Setup Utility. (Consult the game manual for the game you are playing for specific information.)
  2. Tap "Options."
  3. Tap "Transfer Nintendo WFC Configuration."
  4. Tap "Ok", then tap "Ok" again.
  5. Second DS (system you are transferring the ID to)

  6. Remove all games from the DS you wish to transfer the settings to, then turn the system on.
  7. On the DS's main menu, select "DS Download Play."
  8. Select "Nintendo WFC Configuration Transfer."
  9. Tap "Yes" when asked if you want to download the software. The word "Downloading..." will appear.
  10. First DS

  11. On the DS with Nintendo WFC configuration, tap "Ok" to confirm that you wish to transfer the configuration.
  12. Second DS (system you are transferring the ID to)

    • If there is an existing configuration on the new DS, tap "Ok" to confirm that you wish to overwrite the existing configuration.
    • Once the transfer begins, it will take about half a minute.

    Both DS Systems

  13. Once the configuration has been transferred, tap "Ok" to save the changes and shut each system off.

All of the Friend Codes you had given or received on the previous Nintendo DS will now work in the Nintendo DS system you transferred the ID to.


I just copied that from nintendo.com's customer service for you... it's better than how I could explain it.
