yeah they should come with screen protectors.. =( I scratched mine to hell before i realized what a screen protector was, and ended up trading it in at gamestop and buying a new one. I know it's not an answer to what you're looking for, but that's what i did.. =(
There are trade in for new DS Lite or DSi at some Gamestops and EB games. I suggest getting a screen protector, you can pick them up cheap at Walmart with a new stylus so it wont scratch anymore. Some games have regular control options like Super Mario DS. I wouldn't suggest just replacing the screen (costs more than the price of the ds).
you do know if you have bought the ds from a games shop and had it less than 12 months you can get a free replacement no matter how many scratches or even a free repair, so if you do get a replacement go on ebay and get yourself some touch screen guards/protector, they only cost 99p most of them are free post and packaging, i hope this is of any use
Contact Nintendo via their website and try to locate a repair centre near you, or they may be able to get it sent off to be fixed.
Look on eBay, there are lots of these being broken by small children and you could salvage a screen from one of those.
You can find places that specialise in console repairs that can do the job for you also.
The good news for you is it's not the actual screen that is damaged. Threre is a touchpad that sits ontop of the screen that you are really pressing on, so you may even be able to find just the touchscreen and replace the one you have.
The only bad thing about the repair is I cannot advise you to try it yourself unless you are very electronically minded. There are bits inside that are extremely sensitive and can snap with the slightest amount of pressure.
It may not be what you think.
Check it closely there could be a screen protector on it that just peels away and you apply a new one to it.
When you first buy a DS it comes with a set to apply straight away.
These are easy to get anywhere they sell Nintendo's.
