The main reason for it not reading games will be that one of the pins that connect with game card when inserted will be bent! The console needs to be opened and all four points around the game port will need to be desoldered and the top half lifted off and the pins bent back into place! and put back together again!

My Nintendo DS keeps pausing while I'm trying to play Super Mario

The problem may be something in the ds cartridge slot. Try removing the game, blowing into the slot, then re-inserting the game. If that does not work, you may need to buy a new copy of the game. If you don't want to lose your progress you can buy a GBA/DS Action Replay and use it to backup your save data. that is a Gameboy Advance action replay with a nintendo ds slot. you can find it at or you can look around for it at local stores or on ebay.

Nintendo ds lite not reading games says no game inserted sent it back to be repaired and problem not sorted

Look down in the game slot and see if all of the pins are intact. Sometimes one of the pins will get bent or broken which doesn't allow the unit to read the game. A new game slot can be purchased off of ebay, but if you dont' have any experience soldering, I would recommend finding someone that is or take it to a repair shop.
