Nintendo ds N5 card stuck on loading screen

Hello I have a Nintendo DS N5 card but every time i turn the ds on it is staying on the loading screen and wont go any further i am also using a 2gb tf card. Some one please help as soon as possible thank you I have this problem too, but in a different way.
My N5 works with the 1.18 version software, but it doesn't with the newer ones!
If I put the new 1.28 software on it, it displays the "Loading" screen.
I format it and everything, but it only works with version 1.18.

For the N5 you need to fully format the 2gb card, don't be tempted to do a quick format because it won't work.
You are right to use version 1.28 but copy each file across individually in the order they are listed when you have downloaded them. Then you can create your 3 folders assuming you want them
I have spend a few months on and off arguing with these cards but doing as above should solve your problem.

DSL light has stopped recognizing N5 cards. I've tried 2 cards neither works. Both cards work in another system. DS games do work.

the slot1 socket is not holding the cards tight enough on the pins inside the socket, when the card is in the ds try to push the card slightly from the top away from you and turn the ds on, if it loads there is a trick you can do. Get back to me if it works and ill run u through what to do.

Prob loading free ds games off pc.

When you say, "Keeps Loading Up..." what do you mean?

If it boots as if they were no N5 card, then I would suggest the N5 card or Micro SD card isn't seated properly and making contact with all the game slot contacts.

Your DS may need to be repaired. If your DS is less than a year old, Nintendo will cover the cost of the repair. If the DS is older than one year, then you will probably have to pay $75 plus shipping and handling. For the quickest service, you should call 1800 255-3700.
