Additional step but be careful! I found my kids were licking the game cartridges to get them to play in their two DS lites. Finally none would play. Cleaned the game cartridges with 80% alcohol dampened (not dripping) Q-Tips, gently wipe w/clean cloth, and allow to dry. Still none worked. Figured the game slot pin were coated in spit or oxidized. Took a cheap thin emery board for doing nails, used the fine side toward the pins and gently (going directly in and out so as not to bend the pins sideways) abraded the pins. Blow gently to remove any dust. Now both machines see all cards all the time.

When games are inserted into console they will not play


If you are inserting a DS card, be sure there are no foreign articles inside the slot. Blow into the DS card slot to clear any debris. Also be sure you are inserting the card all the way in until it clicks. I've also found that if you're powering on a game, and you bump, grasp or touch the ds card as the DS is powering on, that can cause it to not read games.

Check the actual DS card itself and carefully look at the exposed contacts on the circuit board. Be sure none of them are scratched, damaged or otherwise. A scratch can damage a contact, thus preventing proper data read.

If anything was spilled onto the DS card, be sure it is thoroughly cleaned with a damp cloth (no cleeaning chemicals!) If you immerse the DS card, or pour liquids on it, that may damage it as well.

Same points hold true for inserting a Gameboy Advance game (if you have a DS or a DS Lite. The DSi and DSiXL do not have Gameboy Advance slots.

If you turn on the DS and nothing happens, try a different DS Card. If it only happens with that one particular game (or games) your DS cards are damaged or need cleaning. If all your games are not playing, there is a problem with your DS. Try your games in a friend's DS just to make sure. You'll probably have to send the unit to Nintendo for repair, or take it to an authorized repair center.

How do transfer packs work? Will it work on a nintendo DS?


A Game Pack is the game cartridge you insert to play a game. GameBoy Advance Games are not compatable with the Transfer Pak. The Transfer pack and Pokemon Stadium 2 only support the following: Pokemon Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver and Crystal versions. No Ruby will not work with the transfer pak as you will not be able to insert it, and the software would not pick it up.

Games will not list in DS even though downloaded onto SD Card.


Try plugging the memory card into your computer and checking that the files still exist. It is possible to delete files from the memory card whilst it is plugged into your DS.

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.
