You can purchase them off of ebay for around £5 but I must warn you they are difficult to fit.

Hope this helps

My dsi is only 2 mos old and it wont read the games. It says there is no game inserted when there is.

Obviously with a question like this it's hard for me to pinpoint the issue over the itnernet. But my DS Lite does this sometimes and I just turn off the DS and try again. Another thing you could try is to blow out the inside of the **** that you put the game into and wipe off the metal contacts of the game with rubbing alcohol and a cloth. If thats not helpful, it might be a hardware problem.

Problem with the game cards

You need a new cartridge game reader.. Or.. If you're not doing this..

Insert the game, and cut the game on with it inserted and see if it reads.

I can tell you.You might have to clean the back metal strips on your Ds game or game Pak.Also the game pak's internal battery has runned dry.Use a cutip to clean inside (works on Ds games)Turn on and off the Ds muiltiples off times and it should have work.I tried it and it worked.

Action replay

Have you tried inserting the game while the DS was off? I too find that the Action Replay doesn't recognize when you insert a game while the AR and DS is on. So you may just need to turn off your DS, insert the game, and then turn on your DS and activate the codes

Doesn't recognize game

Use a magnifying glass and check the metal pins that connect to the game. Look for any pins that seem low, these mat not be touching the games connectors. If that doesn't work, i'm afraid it's more likely to be a fault on the main curcuit board; Or get rid of it on eBay on a Sunday, you'll probably get £35-£45 as it is.
Hope this helps?

Hi. the same thing sometimes happens to me. but i find if i remove the cartridge and blow into it and the slot on the DS then insert the cartridge firmly back into the slot it will work. it seems that even the smallest speck of dust will affect it.
