    Hi fellow Tempers

    I've recently encountered a problem with my 2 months old dsi. When playing on my ezflash, the game freezes and when rebooting the dsi you can clearly see that the cartridge isn't dectected. The problem probably lies in some contact problem. What is an efficient and non-harming way to clean the cartridge slot?

    Thanks for all help.

    Have you tried the paper trick?

    First time I've heard of that trick, might be worth the effor.. Do you attach the paper on the sticker side or the bare side? That's the only thing I'm not certain yet.

    Thanks anyways.
