Nintendo DS (not lite) problem with L and R buttons

I just bought a used Nintendo DS (not lite) from Gamestop for my son and he said that when he puts in a Gameboy Advance game that he is unable to use the L and R buttons. He does not yet have a DS game cartridge to use with it so we do not know if it is a problem with the actual console or if it is just that those buttons do not work with Game Boy Advance games. Please help.

    I beg to differ, Gameboy Advance SP games are playable in the DS system, and I do apologize for accidentally omitting the SP part from my original request for assistance. I do think that calling someone an idiot is rather inappropriate.

Shut the hell up I think you're the idiot because i'm familar with the ds and ds lite and i am 100% sure you can use game advance games. My sollution is game boy advance games do use L and R buttons but maybe the specific game does not.

    By the way i was talking to shellybabe1



Maybey the game had a piece of dirt stuck in it causing things to be incorrectly transmitted? (but i'm just a girl making a guess it allways seems to me my problem) My other guess is the system overheated causing yet again information to be not trasmitted.

p.s. i have gotten all a's in all siece classes and comp. class just not english class

Corupted data on Nintendo DS Lite

is it definitely "any" game? Reason is that a lot of games are now suffering from flat batteries, the symptom of which is what you're saying, corrupt save data.

The only solution is to change the battery if thats the case.
