Where the game goes its probably dusty, try to blow on it try not to get spit on it though. if after that it doesnt work try to blow on it again with no spit then get the cartridge game and clean the copper plates with a cotton swab or a toothpick with some tissue paper. Hope it works. RATE ME PLZ.

When i put in a game it says insert game cart


Well, I used to have the nintendo 64 and it would do the samething. Even my nintendo ds does it! But I think it is a common misread of the software. I've fixed my problems by:
1. Taking out game pak, and blow into game pak slot.
2. Try putting the game pak back into the slot.
3. Or blow onto the gamepak gentally, for it might just be dust build-up.

These may not work, but hopefully they will. They've worked for me before. For my ds I had mariokart in the slot and it didn't read the software but I took out the game pak and placed it back into the slot and it worked.

New ds lite will not accept r4 cards


Thats because the new DSi has a new firmware that stops old flash carts from working. Although a flashcart is gonna be released soon that does work in the DSi

Nintendo ds


try blowing into the part you put the game in, it seems to work for me, and many people have this problem.
Turn the ds off
Take your games out
Blow in the part where you put your games in, not to much...
put your games back in, and turn the ds on again, it should regognise it, if it dosn't then it might be the game
