Do so how you normally would when playing the GBA game on a GBA (It best be a GBA game, because DS and DS Lites cannot communicate to older Game Boy games), go through the menus (on the game) and delete the files. It's not a matter of the DS having the problem it's the game.

I've went through the menu's and deleted the game but my game still has "corrupted data":

First, do all you can do, clean out the slot in the DS Lite, and the cartridge (with a damp, NOT SOAKING WET, cotton swab), and try the game again. Start a new save file, save it after a ways, and try to load it again. IF it -STILL- has a corrupted save file problem, then it is time to bring it to the seller or the manufacturer.

The seller: Telling the seller what's happening is great. BUT SHOWING the seller that the save data never loads really helps! Customers can say quite a few things to Sellers just to get a new game or their money back, but showing them is pretty much proof. No, you don't -HAVE- to show them, but if the seller is -that- skeptical, it may be wise to bring your DS along with you.

The manufacturer: All games have a Technical support call number, also going to nintendo's main site,www.nintendo.com/, and going straight to their technical support pages helps too. Sending it in will warrant a little wait time, but if done correctly you will receive a fixed or new game from them as well.

How do I reset a ds game that I bought second hand?


Many DS games will reset their save data if you hold down the A, B, X, Y, L and R buttons (simultaneously) when the game is starting up.
There are lots of different key combination. Read the manuals carefully, I'm willing to bet that (almost) all games have some key combination to reset the save, even if there's no visible "Reset" option in the menus.

Corupted data on Nintendo DS Lite


is it definitely "any" game? Reason is that a lot of games are now suffering from flat batteries, the symptom of which is what you're saying, corrupt save data.

The only solution is to change the battery if thats the case.

Try getting the latest version of the firmware for ur ds. After u download the firmware, put ur card into card reader. Use computer to delete everything except ur games. Then put the firmware that you downloaded into the card. See if it works.
