It is very easy bend the pins on the inside of the card slot in the DS. Depending on your daughters age's they may be the cause. Have a look into the slots with a small torch to see if any are out of line. If they are there is your problem.

On a similar point I had one recently at our shop and it had come in twice before with the same problem of not reading the games. We asked the women who was bringing it in to show us how the games were being put in to discover it was her 7 year old son and it wasn't putting the games in that was the problem, it was him pulling them out instead of pressing the game down to release it.

It would be very rare to have the exact same problem with 3 DS's in a row with the exception of the problem being caused by the user.

FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS THE GAMES AND TOOK THEM BACK TO STORE. WHEN I INSERT A DS GAME INTO DS LITE IT DOES NOT SHOW UP. IT ONLY SHOW HIGHLIGHT/OPTION FOR PICTOCHAT AND DOWNLOAD DS GAME


Its possible something was inserted by accident and bent the pins that touch the contacts on the game and now they don't touch so it can't read the game. Also try blowing it out with compressed air, dust buildup or just something foreign in there can gum up the works.

Have two ds lites they wont load the games it just says to insert the game but they r in ,any ideas?.Thanks


Hi,

There are possibly 3 things wrong.

1.) Your games are bad, since this is happening on both DS Lites.
2.) Check your pins inside of the DS. If they are bent, they wont read, but if they are slightly bent, you could actually straighten them yourself with a long skinny tool.
3.) The memory on both your ds lites are blown.

My solution: I ask that you place alcohol on all of your games and insert them and remove them 5 times to lubricate the pins, then on the 6th insertion, cut the game on to see if it reads.

I hope this helps :)

DS won't read game


make sure that the carteidge is clean, and the cavity inside the DS is clean as well...you can do this by putting isopropyl alcohol on a qtip...make sure you let it dry before powering on your DS again.

No ds game inserted


it is a very common problem with the nintend DS console, its to do with dust or dirt being trapped between the connectors that the game cartridge connect too. make sure that this is clean, properly, (not by just blowing into it) my advice is to use a DRY cotton bud or something allong those lines.....hope this helps, if it doesnt get back to me

A freezing nintendo lite!


The DS Card Slot may be loose. If so, try not to touch the game card while playing.

Or, there may be a piece of dust or lint in the card slot. If you can see the lint, pick it out with clean tweezers. If you cannot see it, ask a mechanic to open the Ds and pick the dust out.
