I have the same kind of problem. It does not read my Kingdom Hearts 3D cartridge at all, regardless of any way I tried to make it read it. I heard it may have something to do with regional difference and it's true - the 3DS comes from USA, while the game from Europe. While I have Pokemon Diamond cartridge, which is also from Europe and it reads it just fine. Does it mean the regional difference matters only in case of 3DS cartridges? If not, how can I solve my problem?
all you have to do is simple!! cut out a peice of paper about the same size as the ds chip and put it down the back f the R4 card, inbetween slot1 and the card and voila! but dont add too much paper or it can burst the cartridge :):):)
I hope it isn't doing it for all your games, though that would be rather rare. Usually if the DS isn't reading the game cards right it'll just not read anything and act like you never put a card in.
From what I can gather it sounds like the game is damaged or simply not reading right. Be sure to clean the metal contacts on the game card with a soft small q-tip and brush away any cotten that might get stuck on it.
Another problem is that the contacts have been scratched or worn down. This isn't easily fixed though most DS machines will read the card anyway.
Best way I know of to fix an unrepairable DS game card is to send it in like you would under a warrenty. Usually they'll charge a fee, but they'll repair or replace your card. Usually this will be better than buying a whole new one.
Another problem could be dirty contacts in your DS too. I suggest using a can of air you can get from any computer store. Use that to blow some air into it and it may help some.
hi , im sorry 2 hear that would u need to do is take the game card out gently (and i mean gently) blow into the ds and the see if that works if it doesnt please dont panic just try again or take the ds card out and look and see if there something on it and if that does not work take back the (or game) back to the store u got it for and ask for a new one I hope this works
It may be that the game is damaged or the DS isn't reading the game card correctly.
This is usually due to dirt or other artifacts on the metal contacts on the bottom back side of the game card. These metal contacts need to touch the metal contacts inside the DS in order for it to read.
It is also common that these get scratched up and harder for some DS machines to read.
Best ways to deal with this is you use a small Q-tip and dust off the contacts on the card. The contacts in the DS can get dirty, but are hard to clean. If you must, I suggest using a can of air to dust it out. A Q-tip would only make things worse as they often break apart and the DS game card contacts are hard to get at without opening the DS itself.
If those fail then there's one final solution. Send the game card to Nintendo for repairs. If it is no longer under warrenty it'll cost you a fee, but they'll repair or replace the card for you.
I'd suggest checking the card in differnt DS machines to see if its just your DS not reading it right or not.
