    1- There is no an official Nintendo DS 93 in 1 game in the market. What you have is a preloaded FlashCart.

    2- The card is not even loading and if new then might be defective.

    3- All FlashCarts have different issues.

    Please can you take pictures or give descriptions or the actual card name if possible. If there is not a name, and you dont have a way to access the card memory via a USB reader then only the seller of your FlashCart can know how to help you.

Try formatting it and if it doesn't work, find out where you got it from and see if you can get a replacement

System Date error Please check NDS system date

  • The temporary fix is to set your date back a year (or six months) and things will be back temporarily back to normal.
  • To set back the date follow these steps.
  1. Completely remove R4 card.
  2. Touch the screen.
  3. Now you'll see a screen that says Pictochat in one box and DS Download Play in the other.
  4. Press the DS icon located below the two boxes.
  5. Now you will see four more boxes. Click on the blue box that has a calendar in it.
  6. Now click on the calendar icon and set the date back.
  • The reason this is happening (and it has happened to a TON of people) is software incompatibility.
  • The permanent fix is to update your software.
  • This is the link to NDS-Gear R4 card update.
  • If your R4 card is from somewhere other than NDS-Gear then just go to their site to update the software.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

My son has a nintendo ds lite and when ever I insert any game it will not play the game. It comes to the main screen where it has the clock as well as the calendar. Does not matter what game it is, can you...

When you get to that screen, there should be a menu option for the game that you just tap to start the game. Look for a menu option on that screen that looks like the name of the Game Card you have inserted.
If you want to skip that screen, set the Nintendo DS to AUTO START the game.
To set auto startup, see

My son has managed to change the language to german and we cannot change it back. It does not go into a screen to allow us to pick english. Any suggestions?

turn on your DS, touch the screen to open the menu(from top to bottom(DS Game, Pictochat, DS Download play, GBA Game) and underneath the GBA Game there is a little button that looks like an open DS... Touch that button, Now you will see a menu with a Wrench and Clock & Calendar, a Person, and a Cross.

Click on the Wrench, and then click on he icon that looks like a globe, form there just choose the language that you want.

I just got this ds lite and when you touch the left side of the touch it shows you are touching the middle of the screen. This is the 2nd ds that gave me this problem.

try recalibrating your touch screen.
go to the screen with the clock and calendar.
at the very bottom of the touch screen is a DS icon, select it.
next you'll get a screen with: a wrench, clock/calendar, person,a cross hair with a small square in the middle.
select the the cross hair with a small square in the middle.
the DSLite will walk you through recalibrating your touch screen.

hope this helps :D

How do you work the nintendo ds download?

It depends what game you have. First,you need to see if you have a ds download play compatible game. If you don't you need to have the same game and press host on one and join on the other. If you do have a ds download play compatible game first you need to touch the ds download play option on the main menu and it should say:looking for software availabe for download.Then on the other ds you get on the game and press the mutiplayer option and press (if available) the simple play (play with someone who doesn't have the same game.) On the ds that is looking for software it should show you the option to play the game just push it and it will start loading.

On the back of the game it says Wireless DS,Single Card,Download Play on one box and Wireless Ds, Multi-Card,Play. Whats the difference and can it be downloaded?

It means that multiple people can play the game wirelessly, and only one person needs to own the game. Other friends can connect to your DS via wifi, and they'll download what they need from you so that they can play as well.

When the ds is turned on, it just comes up with the calendar and clock, wont go to games to play

when you turn on your DS it should load a sort of home screen and when your game is plugged in, you can select it from the touch screen.
