Yea, there are several components that read the chips within the DS. I would call Nintendo to see if you are under warranty for a free repair, or i would pay them to have it repaired.

Game sees letters as numbers. Ds is correctley calibrated. what is causing this?

Read the puzzle question again.

The game knows whether the answer should be letters or numbers (for example, when the answer needs to be an number, you will only get numbers).

Other players who have asked this have tried entering letters as an answer when the answer needs to be a number.

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.
