Nintendo ds, can not erase data message

My son just purchased a used game. When we insert it in the DS it says "can not erase data, turn power off and reinsert the game card." We can not seem to get past this screen and I have tried the game in our other kids's DS's . The game is Super Mario Bros. if that matters at all.
Thanks

Where did you buy this game? Is it from a reliable source? There's been known fake DS games that don't work. And usually the case is the game shows a message "can not access saved data. please turn of power and re-insert game". This is actually my first time with a case where it can't erase the data. Try contacting the previous owner.

Corupted data on Nintendo DS Lite


is it definitely "any" game? Reason is that a lot of games are now suffering from flat batteries, the symptom of which is what you're saying, corrupt save data.

The only solution is to change the battery if thats the case.

Nintendo DS message... "Unable to load data. Turn the power off and resinsert the Game Card."


Well maybe when you turn it on, it might be on manual mode. To switch it to auto mode, Press options then press the wrench and then find auto or manual mode and then, switch it to auto mode. Save the options and then it should play the game. If it doesn't work, blow into the DS game and then the DS game slot.
