If your card is blank you also need to download six files on the card so the ds understands the homebrew games if you give me your email i will send these to you

Re: Nintendo DS Lite

Usually the seller load the card with games so you only need to insert the card with DS game shape into the DS game slot-1. And that must work for long time as you dont overfill the card with saved games.
When you turn ON the NDS with the card placed (like a common game), The DS card should show a menu to choose between the available games in it.

If you cant see any game, menu or whatever then you might have a blank card so you might need to load the games yourself into the card. You must have a flash linker (big slot-2 GBA cartridge) that must have a jack to plug the USB cable from your computer.
You can download the required software latest files from the manufacturers website. Once connected, turn on your DS, your PC will recognize it and you will be able to drag and drop files, then you can delete or copy some less used game roms or save files from the card to your PC leaving free space for the others to run.

If nothing of that works for you, then you would try to find a FAQ or support forum site where you can find more options to solve this issue. All the cards work almost the same way but each one has his own issues, manuals and FAQs. And some sellers are selling the DS cartridge only, without the flash linker or USB cable and many people dont know with that tools they can exchange and download and load other ROMS, clear the card when stuck or corrupted, etc.

Good Luck...

I lose my nintendo micro sd card and all of my nds games were there. I bought a new micro sd card for my nintendo ds, and downloaded new games. When I tried to play it, the nintendo says: "No...

First before you can use the memory card on your DS lite you have to first use the DS lite to format the memory card before putting games this ensures that the game would recognise whatever games you then put on the memory card.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Ds games keep freezing

Occasional lockups with video gamescan happen from time-to-time and do not necessarily indicate a need for repairor replacement. If you are experiencing frequent lockups, or a particular gamealways locks up in the same area, please see the information below. Make sure you are using onlylicensed accessories. Unlicensed products and accessories do not undergoNintendo's testing and evaluation process. They may not work at all with ourgame systems, and they may have compatibility problems with certain games oraccessories. Check for visible contamination orforeign material on the connector pins of your Game Cards or Game Paks. Ifpossible, try the Game Card in another Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite. If the game works properly inanother system, the problem is with your Nintendo DS Lite. (from nintendo troubleshootingguide)

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.

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.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
