Re: ds wont turn on when game inserted

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

My son has managed to change the language to german and we cannot change it back. It does not go into a screen to allow us to pick english. Any suggestions?

turn on your DS, touch the screen to open the menu(from top to bottom(DS Game, Pictochat, DS Download play, GBA Game) and underneath the GBA Game there is a little button that looks like an open DS... Touch that button, Now you will see a menu with a Wrench and Clock & Calendar, a Person, and a Cross.

Click on the Wrench, and then click on he icon that looks like a globe, form there just choose the language that you want.

Do DS plays GBA games ?

Yes, but only on DS/DS Lite. There is a small panel at the front of the console on the bottom. Open it up and there is a slot. You may need to blow a little in it. Then on the menu, press a certain button (Sorry, can't remember what it says) and it will say something along the lines of 'Play GBA game'. Simply insert your game and press the button. Hope this helps.

Good Luck, and Game On!

Nintendo ds problem

it may be a technical difficulty in the gba slot try bowing in it or get a q tip and kinda dust it out or blow in the game becuse the game isint making any connections to the ds and with the charger thing if u push in the charger too hard you might mess up the reciving thing inside the ds so it wont get the charge so be very careful when it comes to ds.....if u have any more questions plz let me know

Gba game wont work

Did you remove the cartridge with the DS switched on? This may have damaged the game. Is the DS still ok with other games?

Nintendo DS message... "Unable to load data. Turn the power off and resinsert the Game Card."

Well maybe when you turn it on, it might be on manual mode. To switch it to auto mode, Press options then press the wrench and then find auto or manual mode and then, switch it to auto mode. Save the options and then it should play the game. If it doesn't work, blow into the DS game and then the DS game slot.
