Question about Nintendo DS Lite

1 Answer

DS Lite games are not recognized in the card slot

I have 3 DS Lites. Within 5 minutes of each other, two of them quit recognizing the came cards. Both still work in PicChat and in Download mode. But nothing seems to work in the card slot. Normally, if you insert a card while the console is on, it will reboot to the welcome screen. It does not do this when a card is inserted. When turned on with a game card inserted, the screen says ''There is not DS Card inserted''. I've blown the slot out with compressed air, but no luck. I find it interesting two of the same machines, purchased at the same time and place, quit working at the same time...

My nintendo ds lite don't read the game cards anymore. which game i put in, it keeps saying in the menu that there is no game card inserted.


Hi there, this is a problem to do with the card reader slot, The pins within them become worn or bent and do not make a good contact with the game cartridge any more. You can buy a new card reader slot off of ebay for around £4 but they are quite difficult to fit. If you have good soldering skills you can do it but I would advise googling for a guide that shows you how to do it. You can follow my tip for actually taking apart the DS. If you have a friend who is good at soldering I am sure they would be able to do it for you.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

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.

Ds does not recognise R4


Try eject, blow into the port then reinsert. There is a possibility that your ds has blocked the r4 from being used on that ds.

Nintendo ds lite won't read card

DS Card Not Recognized


the card slot may be dusty, blow gently into it (making sure no spittle gets in) or get a clean cloth and wipe the outside of it. On no account must the slot get wet, or it will probably get damaged and will not work.
