    I create the game and I click when I finished the project of create file...

    And this says me the CMD file:

    C:\DSGameMaker\Temp>make clean
    Der Befehl "make" ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder
    konnte nicht gefunden werden.

    Der Befehl "make" ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder
    konnte nicht gefunden werden.

    Drücken Sie eine beliebige Taste . . .


    I have german Windows XP

The proper solution is here:

To be short:
- Connect the DS to a PC via USB
- Select USB mode
- Via MS Explorer, select the card and delete all the savegames on the card (.SAV)
- go into your DSYSTEM directory and delete the LASTSAVE.sdb and restart the Ncard

Thats it. Cause is probably a bad saveby one of the installed games. I've had the issue with FIFA 2007.

If you having trouble with files try reformatting your ds console it worked for me

Since it's brand-new I suggest bringing it back to the store for help. Someone in the video game section should be able to diagnose (in person) whether it needs to be repaired or replaced.

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.

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.

Why has my ds cleared my game off- saying 'game file empty' ?

Take care pressing the B key, on some cards (on certain screens) this erases the stored game file.

N-card error

Depending on what type of card you have, you need to go to the appropriate website and download the latest software files.If the card takes a memory card you may also find formatting the card with the fat 32 system more reliable and this may get rid of the Open fat error also.
Hope this helps
