Backup all your save data then reformat your microsd card. Download the latest firmware for it and put that on the card. load your games again and they should be working

My nintendo ds lite game card wont load. what can i do? Its a DSTT card. The screen loads with all the health and saftey info and it shows what game i can play but when i choose the game the top screen...

It's either bad connection between memory card and DSTT or it needs a DSTT rom update or....your DS has an issue. I have several DS's that are all quite happy to play various game cards but I have one that does just as you are describing. I have cleaned it, checked it, tried everything but it just wont work. I have decided in my case is probably a CPU or DS firmware problem.
If the DS is a copy then I would suggest changing the motherboard (£50 on the net, or replacement copies are out there for £35 but there will be no guarantee with those)

My ttds menu wont load i get the red face ive tried all solutions like format and reload but keeps happening its worked fine for a year previously

I wrote this tutorial for people who have a clone (fake) DSTT (sold in a carton box , instead of a plastic blister) which stopped working after they updated their DSTT's with firmware 1.16 . Also when you have a clone card you can make it ''genuine'' by flashing it with this tutorial. The fake .bin file in the fake/clone dstt wil be replaced with a genuine .bin file so you can use every firmware even from the REAL DSTT site.

1. Download the recovery files here :
2. Open DSTTRecovery.exe .
3. Fill in the path of your MicroSD, for example . D: or E: , and click ''Install''
4. The files who will be needed to recover your DSTT will be placed on the MicroSD.
5. Put your MicroSD in your dstt , turn on your NDS and start ''FakeRecovery.nds'' (sometimes it takes up to 60 start-ups).
6. The Recovery Utility will load things, this can take a while..
7. You must press ''A'' , after a few secs it asks you to press ''A'' another time.
8. If the flashing is succeeded you'll see a message on your screen that the recovery was successful
9. Use firmware 1.15 don't use 1.16 because after a while your fake card will be bricked again.
download v1.15 at

My ttdsi it has an i because it is for dsi is not working it keeps on sayin error pease read the dsi instruction manual i read the manual and it didn't help so can someone pease tell me what to do to fix...

Hello Luke,
I am assuming that you have a dstti card in it so you can play copied games??

If so then what you need to do is remove the Sd memory card out of the dstt cartridge card and connect it to your Pc.

go down to kernel V1.17
download this and unpack this to your memory stick.
then put it back into your dstt card then back into your Dsi.
with the dsi it does not load the same as a normal ds. when it loads click the memory card option then it will load normally with the dstt menu screen for you to choose whatever game you like.

Hope this has helped you out.

Cheers Little Dish Fitter.

First The dsi readed the ttds(i) card but it wouldn't start, now it even doesn't show up. i think it is because i already upgraded the dsi, but now i dont know how to solve this problem.

Hello ruben,

There are two types of dstt cards one that will play on a normal Ds lite etc and the other that will play on all including the dsi.

If you check on the sticker of the dstt card it will tell you what it is compatible to use with.

If this is a Dstt(i) card then it does not load the same way as your used to it loads up and then you must click on the sd memory option then it will load your normal TT menu screen.

Hope this has helped you out.

Ttds card shows menu and won't work


You need to put the correct software onto the card otherwise there's nothing for the DSTT to load.

You should be able to download the correct software for your DSTT off the official website. If it doesn't work still then I'm afraid you might have a fake card.

Ttds card not loading

Did you install the firmware/software for the DSTT? Download the DSTT software, unzipped it and transfer it to the DSTT card and see whether it works.

DSTT Rom Loading Error

Make sure all of your firmware is updated. There should be a 1.17 firmware for it. I heard from a bunch of my friends who had firmware 1.16 or lower that they all got the new one and they all work perfectly fine. Try it. Here it here.
