Re: thing goes to game instead of the menu bar when DS...

You can set the ds to auto load the game from the options menu, so turn off the system take out the game cards (both DS and advance games) and then turn on your system, that should cause your system to start displaying the pictochat/ ds download play screen at the bottom of this you will see a ds pic tap that and you can get into your settings and change them from auto to manual.

Hope that helps ;)

Menu icon coming up when turn it on

This is normal if the ds is set to manually start games. You can set the DS to start a game automaticly and never show you the menu.

Unable to read sd card

Hi grecko, Hope this helps, I've just bought a 4gb memory card for my daughter's ds so she can fit 58-60 games instead of 28 on a 2gb memory card and have downloaded and put a file onto the memory card before loading games onto it.

Supercard DS one have a site where you can download the files you need and it gives help. Guess it's the same if using an R4 supercard too but I bought an R4 card for partner preloaded with software.

Nintendo ds lite won't read card

had this problem, i looked into where the game goes and one of the little metal teeth was bent, so i took a long toothpick and gently pushed it back over now it works fine. Be careful that you dont break it off though.

Ds wont turn on when game inserted

they probably would realize due to serial numbers - too risky.

DS not going to the menu but straight to the game. This annoying

When turning your NDS ON press the select button a while and the main menu must appear instead the game.

To disable the Auto Mode go to:
Manual Mode: if you would like the main menu screen to appear or;
Auto Mode: if you would like for the game cartridge to run when you turn on your DS.

Anyway at this time you know how to access the main menu screen in auto mode so if you like the game to load instantly then let the setting in auto mode and access the menu only when needed.

Good Luck...

PD: I am not Daniel, dont even know him XD...

No Start Up Menu

turn it on without any cartridge inside, probably the menu will appear again.
