Question about Nintendo DS Console
This is a very common problem and is usually due to either dirty orcorroded pins in the game slot or a bent pin. Sometimes it can be the game contacts are a bit dirty but if its the same with all games then its the slot pins.
It is sometimes possible to clean the pins in the slot with some fine abrasive paper rubing the pins in an in and out motion, not side to side. The pins are extremly delicate so you may end up bending a pin which basicly leaves you with a slot change.
It an easy job with the right tools and a bit of skill using a soldering iron.

To get an in depth answer seach you tube but in brief.
You will need to download the system files for your type of R4 or flash card you are using, make sure you get the exact model type as they are not interchangeable.
Drag and drop the files to your card you will see either 4 or 5 files. Then make a folder called Games on your micro SD card and load your games into that folder.
It quite involved but the tutorials on you tube go right into it.

You may have a bent pin on the game slot. Try inserting a game several times rapidly in and out. Look at your game cartridges and see if one of the contacts is damaged in the same place on all of the cartridges.
If this does not solve the issue, you will need to get your console repaired. Either the repair shop will replace all of the electronics or resolder a new game slot on your existing board.
