    DS Lite problem - advice please

    My son turned his ds on this morning and the dstt card doesnt read at all, it comes up with the loading bit then lines across both screens.

    Any ideas what has happened and do i need a new one?

    Thanks xx

    never had a prob with needing to update either of my kids cards and they had them a good year now, have you taken it out ang give it a wiggle and tried again, sometimes they can be tempremental little things

    put the sd card into your drive and right click and format, it will wipe the card of all contents, save games to comp before doing this

    Stick it in your computer.
    Goto "MY COMPUTER"
    You should see an Icon for the micro sd card
    Right mouse click on the icon and select FORMAT
    Format to FAT32

    you are starting from scratch, your card will be clean, so you will need to do everything you did the 1st time you got it, did you use thesaints thread to install your firmware 1st time around
