Chances are it is as simple as it being a defective device. If you have had the device for under 12 months it should be covered by the manufacturers warranty. If you registered the product then they generally give you an additional 90 days on top of that. Otherwise you will most likely have to send it to nintendo to have repaired.

I'm sorry there isnt much of a simple fix for this problem, as it is most likely an issue with the internal electronics or lithium battery depending on if the crashes are charge based or simply the system malfunctioning.

SOURCE: ds cartridge don't work

Usually these cards are problematic because get stuck when you fill the available memory with game saves and you must use a special SLOT-2 reader/writer to delete, add or edit files in the card memory from a computer...

If your card seller didnt included that reader/writer with the card then you must call them for support on your problem or try to guess what card model is yours, If you know that info is useful to put it in your question, If not then you have to make a research in internet.

Good Luck...

SOURCE: nintendo ds games not working

With three boys we frequently have this problem and we found that rubbing the pins clean with a Qtip dipped in rubbing alcohol and then wait for it to be mostly dry before re-inserting. Some times we have to do this 2 times  - good luck!

SOURCE: DS won't read game

make sure that the carteidge is clean, and the cavity inside the DS is clean as well...you can do this by putting isopropyl alcohol on a qtip...make sure you let it dry before powering on your DS again.

My ds just crashes--shuts down--when playing. Is


The same thing happened to my DS that was 3 years old. But at a point it didn't even turn on. The top screen made a quick blink then it turned back off automatically. I suggest you just get a new DS (I got a DSi) because a new battery is VERY expensive.

Answer:It is definitely the battery, though.

I cant play any ds games on my ds because it wont read ds games


Thats why, sometimes Action Replay will crash a game.  Usually it means you have too many codes on and need to turn some of them off.

Problem with game


Usually. Has the cartridge been washed, stepped on, thrown, or dropped? That goes for the ds, too.

There is a DS Option Pak Inserted


okay: do not worry this is not a problem the the slot 2 cartridge is not a game and therefore cannot be played :) so there is nothing wrong with it. you can trust me on this one, I have one of these. The only thing this bottom cartridge is, is kind of like an adapter to connect to the computer. you should have recieved a usb cable that goes along with the cartridge. when your ds is turned off, you can connect the usb side of the cable to your computer, and the other side to the bottom cartridge, ( note that you should also have the slot 1 card in the top game slot while doing this ) then turn on your ds, and click on the the top game (not the option pack) then it should give you the option to go to usb mode. im sorry if i made this seem too complex, but you can email me at willwolf72@aol.com for more help, if you'd like :)

When this "freeze" occurs, turn off the DS system and remove and re-insert the game cartridge several times. Turn the system back on and the game should appear. If not, repeat this procedure.

DS recognises game but won't play


check the connectors inside cartridge slot inside ds, verify if they are all aligned ( | | | | | ).

if any contact is bend, you must align it, also check for dirt or rust inside slot.

sometimes you will need to clean contacts inside. you must buy a cleaning kit to do it.
