This is normally due to the pins inside the card slot being bent or dirty, try blowing into the slot or looking inside to see if any of the pins are bent, if they are a new card slot will be needed, available off of ebay. They are tricky to fit but there are lots of companies who offer a repair service.
try compressed air.
more then likely its a hardware issue.
try getting an R4DS card and download games from www.filestube.com if you dont want to repair it.
you can have 50+ games on an sd card and not have to lug around all those games anymore
Chances are its the slot- 1... Have a look at my guide i've written to see if any of the tips I suggest help, if not there is a bit on replacing the slot- 1 part. I also have a guide on taking apart the DS lite if you need it. The replacement part is readily avaliable on ebay for very little money and so long as you have soldering equipment and a steady hand you should be fine. Slot- 1 Trouble shoot guide
you will actually have to physically repair your ds with soldering tools, my suggestion for anyone experiencing this problem, buy a DSi or a new DS Lite. It is already out and better than the DS Lite. Your DS may as well be broken.
I can give you some answers but might not work. See if the slot where the Ds game suppose to go needs to be cleaned.Take a pice of cotton from the cutip and put it on your stlyer(DS stick).Clean inside of it.Stiil dose not work and have a warranty go get the ds repaired.DO NOT PUT LIQUID IN THE DS SLOT(WILL NEVER WORK AGAIN TILL REPAIRED).
had this problem, i looked into where the game goes and one of the little metal teeth was bent, so i took a long toothpick and gently pushed it back over now it works fine. Be careful that you dont break it off though.
