HELP with my DS Lite PLEEEEEAAASE

This might be a long one so bear with me. I've had my DS for nearly 2 years now but hardly played it and recently decided to get TT card etc... I followed all the instructions given by the Saint (Thanks, your a hunny x) and got the games loaded. DS turns on, shows the games that are on it, even starts them up then for no reason at all it either a) Says the card has been taken out and to switch it off, put it back etc.. but i hadn't moved it at all. B) freezes in random placed in some games but plays others. The most annoying yet confusing part is that I also did the same for my Daughters and hers works fine. I've used her TT card with her chip and it freezes, I've used her TT and my chip, my TT and her chip etc... I've even wiped the micro SD, formatted and loaded them on again but nothing works.... I'm going to cry!
I spent hours on Saturday trying to do it and when I finally triumphed, It won't work. (Not to mention a 10 year old keep telling me that hers works fine...GGGRRRRRRRR

sound more like the ds, have you tried your card and sd card in your daughters ds

It may be the new TT card is infact a fake card, I had loads of similar problems with 3 cards bought from Dealextreme a few months ago. I have since replaced all 3 with new non fake cards and no longer have any problems.

See here

for more details about the fakes, which look just like the real thing at first.

I had exactly the same problem, like download dave says, it was a fake card.

Lolly stick nail file (wooden), gently clean the contacts in the dodgy ds-lite's slot-1... don't bend them.

Don't use a metal one.
#11
Nothing there?? Am I doing something wrong? I click on the zip and nothing happens (also says 0kb)
banned#12
on the zip. everything on the card should be unzipped
#13
Here is the manufacturers web page to download the latest firmware and also provides more info on the fake cards.

You're right, they look like the real thing but I bought my daughters cards at the same time from the same place too. Would they not both be fakes? Hers works fine but not in mine.

I'll give it a try, thankyou

The microsd card ur using could also be a little dodgy... We have had some cards in the past that loose files, etc... Try your daughters microsd card in ur DS not just the TT card.
#16
I'll give it a try as soon as I can find the little moo's DS. She's only gone and hidden it from me before she went to school :x
I've got to go and get her from school now and will try, I'll check back in soon.... Thank you all guys, I'll leave rep for you all x

If bought at the same time then yes you are right, they are likely to both be fakes, or both be genuine.

It could of course be that your TT card is just faulty. New cards are only around £4.60 from [url]www.dealextreme.com[/url], even with the weak pound so may be worth ordering a new one if nothing else seems to work.
#18
if it plays some games but not others like you say it prob is the firmware.
#19
why not just copy your daughters contents of her sd card to your pc, then copy the contents back to your sd card, there all fixed
banned#20
if your daughter works fine in her ds and not yours the surely ITS THE DS
#21
have you fixed it
#22
ok, tried her chip in my tt card - got 'the card was removed' after choosing a game to load.
Tried her chip and tt card in mine - played prof layton for longer than I usually can but froze after 10 mins
Tried a real game in there and 1st time it didn't recognise it and 2nd time it played ok.

Whats the verdict doc??
#23
i would say your ds is playing up, swap it with your daughters and in the morning she will say "mum its not working", your reply, "nevermind dear if your good you can use mine". lol

Great Idea but my previous plan seems to have back fired. I marked mine and took the sticker off of hers so if she damaged hers I'd know... Looks like i'm snookered :oops:

So, are there any techies out there that may know what exactly is wrong with it? I've tried dusting off the contacts but not made any difference and have ordered more cards//chips so will see if by fluke it might work
