Unable to read DS micro SD card games

I've recently downloaded some free games for Nintendo DS Lite into a micro SD card - around 8 games in total. However, when I inserted the micro-SD card (through the adopter) into the DS game slot on top of the unit and fire up the DS. Unfortunately, the unit could not detect the games on the slot.

I've tried reformatting the micro-SD, however, the same thing happens. How can I sold this?

Thanks!

    I think the Zelda: Phantom Hourglass game tore it up!
    After playing the Zelda game a few times, it stoped reading the DS game cards.

    I downloaded some free games from the web into my SD card, and when i tried to use it in my DS Lite, it won't load. Next thing I know, my computer was also asking me to reformat the chip, and I did ... and then I downloaded more games to the chip ... but it still won't work in my DSL. (however, GBA cartridges are still readable)



    Thanks.

    I recently bought a ds using r4ds3 with 2GB micro sd card.

    The problem is that after sometime the DS cannot detect the games in the SD. I try to check the the sd using card reader and the games does not appear but the sd card is still full. Eventhough i format the sd card and copy in the back up the same thing happen again.

Have you installed Moonshell onto the micro-SD card? It has to be there to see the games. If you have Moonshell installed, you should be able to navigate to where you stored your files. Your adapter should have come with a CD with Moonshell on it or you can download a newer version on the internet.

If you have purchesed a NDSTT card with the micro sd card and it is asking for menu? then you are missing some file's on the memory card, i have the files, because i have several of these cards, and i juts copied the files that i didn't have on to the computer then transfered them to the memory card that needed them, it now works, not sure if it would work if it wasn't a NDSTT card,

First before you can use the memory card on your DS lite you have to first use the DS lite to format the memory card before putting games this ensures that the game would recognise whatever games you then put on the memory card.
Hope this solution has been helpful?
