Common causes for this problem is either dust or dirt in the card slot or more seriously bent pins. Try blowing in the card slot a few times and put the card back in. Try also looking into the slot to see if any of the pins are bent. If you can see any bent then I am afraid you will need a new Slot A. You can buy these for around £5 on ebay. They are quite tricky to fit so unless you are competent with a soldering iron do not attempt this yourself. For a guide on how to take apart your DS and about the Slot A replacement look online as there are several good sites around. This may sound daunting but I promise you you will be glad you did not pay someone to do it for you, usually they charge a fortune for such a minor repair.

Hope this helps

DS Card Not Recognized


the card slot may be dusty, blow gently into it (making sure no spittle gets in) or get a clean cloth and wipe the outside of it. On no account must the slot get wet, or it will probably get damaged and will not work.
