The saves are missing because the cartridges internal battery has died. The Ram that's in it to hold saved games cannot hold anything without some power.

Some cartridges won't read if the contacts have some dirt on it or something... The blowing thing is not a good thing to do and eventually hurts the cartridge more then it helps. Rubbing alcohol and q-tips cleans the contacts the best in my opinion. You can use the rubbing alcohol and q-tips to clean the contacts inside the system also.

Hope you can get these old classics working like they should be!
Good luck.

    Oh... I forgot to say that if you replace the battery you will solve the problem with the saving... they take the round, thin batteries that you can usually find in super-markets and stuff. Just open up the cartridge and replace. It isn't a hard process to figure out.

Getting the free games will require you to have either performed a system update or connected to the eShop some time PRIOR to August 12th. The games are not currently available in the eShop, so if you don't see them yet, don't panic.

Nintendo:
  1. Super Mario Bros.™
  2. Donkey Kong Jr.™
  3. Balloon Fight™
  4. Ice Climber™
  5. The Legend of Zelda™

Gameboy Advance:
  1. Yoshi's Island™: Super Mario™ Advance 3
  2. Mario Kart™: Super Circuit
  3. Metroid™ Fusion
  4. WarioWare™, Inc.: Mega Microgame$

Control Problems I dont know if its my controller my snes or my games I only have two games Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country. On Super Mario the only buttons that work are the B and Start...


I'd say it sounds like an issue with either the controller or the port on the system. My advice to you would be to try a different controller, and try switching ports on the console. The games should be fine, though.

What is it about?


The N64 is the third home-console published by Nintendo and is the successor of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). It was competing with the Playstation 2 and the Dreamcast.
The name Nintendo 64 comes from the fact that it was one of the first 64-Bit consoles. The "64" can also be found in various game titles like "Super Mario 64" oder "Donkey Kong 64".
The console was released in 1996 and the last game was released in 2002.
Which made this console popular was mostly the nintendo only milestones. The Zelda game (Ocarina of time) is among fans, still the best Zelda game ever released. It was also the debut of the first 3D Mario and Donkey Kong games.

Whenever I try and play donkey kong country 1 for my SNES console it doesn't work but every other game is aokay then. I have cleaned it out too.


Well its because that the battery that allows the game saving process to save is dead or is dying so it will need to be replaced or just buy a new gamepack like that then.

Just bought new Mario vs donkey kong game but when I insert it in correctly it doesn't do anything "no game in slot". No problem with any other game


Is your DSi and Donkey Kong both from the same region? If your system is not from North America but the game is, then Donkey Kong will not work . I know that almost all the other games are region free, but for some reason Donkey Kong does not seem to be that way system. I have an Australian DSi and this is the one game that I cannot get to work, tried multiple copies.

Hope this helps,
Mike!

SNES Controller 2 Port Not Working


The 2nd Player controller port just might be shot. That or the part of the main board that deals with the 2nd controller. My suggestion is purchasing another controller board (the main board and controller board are separate and easily removable pieces) and switching them out. If the problem persists then the SNES's main board probably has an issue.

You're talking about Donkey Kong 64 right?

If so, you need to buy an Expansion Pak.
