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

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.

Nintendo DS will NOT charge

My guess is that the problem resides in the charger. You can buy a dual use charger for the DS and DS Lite at GameStop for relatively cheap.
