    I cleaned the slot with alcohol and a QTip, but it's still not reading the games. Thanks for your suggestion!

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.

How do i reset a spongebob square pants ds game that my son has bought second hand?


some games for DS you can enter the Options menu and delete players and then recreate a player.... however if it is not located in the nintendo DS options for the game then you can try holding the combination of L + R + Select... sometimes my games work with that!

Hi have ds lite and reads there is no ds card inserted does any body have a cure ..


One simple thing that helps sometimes is to gently blow into the hole the games go into.  This was an old trick on the original cartridge systems that worked as well.  Sometimes there's just to much dust for the system to read the cartridge!

DS recognises game but won't play


check the connectors inside cartridge slot inside ds, verify if they are all aligned ( | | | | | ).

if any contact is bend, you must align it, also check for dirt or rust inside slot.

sometimes you will need to clean contacts inside. you must buy a cleaning kit to do it.
