Well, if you look on the back of the game card, you'll see some little plastic lines over the metal part. The lines will match up with the other plastic lines in the ds slot, that is, if they are alined. You'll need to straighten out those lines in the DS to have them matched up with the card's so that the metal part will interact with when turned on, so it will work.

put the sd micro card into your computer with a USB reader and open to read the files, then click on games and see what games are loaded. You can download ds lite games from the internet and use drag and drop to load the load the games onto the sd card.

my son's DS had the same problem this week. With the DS turned off, ,I pushed the game in and held it right down while turning the DS on. The game registered and I let go of the game and it clicked in to place. The next time I tried the game it registered straight away. Good luck!

Ds wont read card


Sounds like a dirty connection or a bad chip to me.

Try simply blowing into the slot and along the chip's connections before inserting the chip. If that doesn't work, and you are feeling brave, use lint free cloth (available at staples) and some Isopropyl (rubbing) Alcohol/Acetone (nail polish remover) to LIGHTLY swab the connection. Let dry completely, then insert chip.

If that doesn't do the trick, I would declare either the chip or the DS bad. Does the DS work with other chips? If it doesn't, chances are the connections between the game chip and the DS circuit board have been loosened to the point where the DS is nonfunctional.

Corupted data on Nintendo DS Lite


is it definitely "any" game? Reason is that a lot of games are now suffering from flat batteries, the symptom of which is what you're saying, corrupt save data.

The only solution is to change the battery if thats the case.
