Re: ds cartridge don't work

Usually these cards are problematic because get stuck when you fill the available memory with game saves and you must use a special SLOT-2 reader/writer to delete, add or edit files in the card memory from a computer...

If your card seller didnt included that reader/writer with the card then you must call them for support on your problem or try to guess what card model is yours, If you know that info is useful to put it in your question, If not then you have to make a research in internet.

Good Luck...

DS Message 'Free disk not enough'

Has it worked in the past? if it has worked in the past, there is problem no more room on the game. If she plays one game and saves it, it uses up the memory. If she plays ALOT of games that uses alot of memory. You must remember that when these people make these illeagle games, they aren't thinking if they will have enough memory on it or not. So most likely the game is full because it was only made to have ONE game on it not FIFTY. The best way to fix it, is to reset the game is you could, if you can't reset it, then there isn't much you can do except go out and buy the real versions from NINTENDO. Sorry.

Nintendo ds won't start pokemon diamond game

Do you know anyone else who has a nintendo ds (doesn't have to be lite)? If so, try the game in that sytstem, and if the same thing happens, then the game has a glitch. This tends to happen a lot with plenty of my handheld games, and i find that it helps if you blow into the game cartridge, and also into the cartridge hole. If that doesn't work, try repeatedly turning the game on and off. And if that doesn't work, try going to

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.
