DS doens't recoginize R4 card in my sons DS Lite. My other sons DS does recoginize the R4 card. Why? how can I get the card to work in both DS Lites.

Make sure you bought the correct R4 for the DS light and not the DSi. If you bought the correct one, then it sounds like the R4 cartridge is defective and needs to be exchanged for another one. Remember, Nintendo does not support the R4 cartridge, so go back to where you purchased it from.

Ninetendo ds games freeze up. Some do not work. The ds is only 6 months old. A freind told my child to lick the game to make it work which did help. I feel this is bad. If we need to replace the slot. how...

Licking the games is not really the best idea, u can do a google search for ds spare parts or of ebay you'll get hold of one but it does reqire a bit of soldering, which if your not to keen on that there is another trick you could try.. open up the ds, just the back cover where the battery goes, the game slot1 is at the top with a silver protective cover, look down the slot for any broken or bent pins. If everything looks fine gently press the bottem corners and middle with a screw driver or twizers until u have a very small dent, this compacks the game cartridge just enough for it to read it properly.

Need help!!!!!!!!!!!

A previously released Madden NFL 08 update for the PLAYSTATION 3 was causing an error code (80010009) to appear and prevent online game play.

There has been a fix published by Electronic Arts (EA) on this problem.

This has now been resolved, but if you already downloaded the update, you will need to remove it before the game will work.

Please follow the steps provided by Electronic Arts below.

If you have encountered an '80010009' error message after downloading the most recent Madden NFL 08 update, please perform the following steps listed below:
  1. Press the PS button on the controller and select QUIT.
  2. In the main screen of the XMBTM user interface, select Game.
  3. Highlight the Game Data Utility folder and press the X button.
  4. Highlight the Madden NFL 08 file and press the Triangle button.
  5. Delete the file.
  6. Restart the game.
This will allow you to launch and play Madden NFL 08.

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.

Nintendo ds games

you need to go into the system itself and delete files from the DS itself. The DS has the capability to save files. when the game starts up, go into systems and you should be able to find where the files are and start to delete some.
