You can search on youtube on how to fix it but it is not that hard to take apart. I don't think anyone does the sending part though.

Both of my kids have DS Lites. Both systems aren't recognizing that there is a game inserted. Sometimes (maybe 1 out of 30 times inserted) we will get lucky and it will work so I know it isn't the games....


You really shouldn't. This is a design flaw, worthy of a class action lawsuit comparable to the one Microsoft faced for the Xbox 360 RROD fiasco. With the old ds, the gold contacts would bend and break over time from games being inserted and ejected and such. Nintendo "rectified" the problem by adding a spring to force it into the right place. Pretty stupid on their R&D dept.'s part. Forcing electronics only breaks them over time. The average lifespan of a DS lite is about a year. If you bought your kids their systems at about the same time, that would explain why they both dont work. I recommend ditching the DS. Either invest in PSPs, as they are more versatile, and you can pirate games on them, so you don't have to pay $60 for a game because you can download them on the internet. But if your kids really want to keep the DS, I have a suggestion. My sister has a lite, and has had it since it first came out. If you pay the $75 to get it fixed, it could be cheaper in the long run, as it will never break again if you do what i'm about to tell you, and you'll never pay for another game again. My sister prevented this on her Ds Lite because she never ejects her cartridge. she has something called an R4 chip. Its really easy to use. the R4 is a cartridge that has a slot that can house a micro SD card. You can actually download games to this chip, for free from various places on the internet. And the DS will never break again from wear and tear, because you dont eject the R4 if you want more games, you eject the micro SD from the R4. Shoot me an email at edchen111@gmail.com if you want to know more about this. No i do not work for R4, i sincerely believe this course of action will save you the most money. Here is R4s website. Take a look.

Problem with the R4 in nintendo DS


Hello there,

This sounds like, quite simply, you having the wrong type of firmware for your card.

There are three 'main' types of R4 card: The R4v2, R4 SDHC, and R4v3 card. There are numerous others as well, but these are the main three. You can find out which one you have and download the correct software by following this link. If you're still stuck, try e-mailing this website with a photo of your card and they may be able to help.

If you are looking for a reliable place to buy DS and DSi cards from that will stock originals, I'd recommend using http://www.NDS-Gear.com (I've used them myself). They test every card before sending which means you won't receive dud cards, and more importantly they have support before AND after your purchase by people who reply very quickly and in perfect English. Some of these dodgy websites take 4-6 weeks to deliver and never answer e-mails, so I'm glad these guys are different. Oh, and they guarantee to dispatch by the next working day, which always helps with speed and all. And they're recommended by a lot of the DS card help sites, too.

Good luck!

Freezed on loading screen !!!!!!!!!


Hi, the original R4 revolution will only worked up to kernel 1.16 or 1.17 or 1.18 (cant remember its one of them). Anything that is higher than that are for the R4 SDHC and others (different type). R4 Cards can be pretty confusing as there are many types (original v2, v3, SDHC, supercard...etc) and they all have their own website. Cant remember the link to the original one but you can get the software at http://nds-gear.com/software-r4v2.zip

Hopefully this one should work for you
