    if i suspect that i am getting a bad connection between my flash cart and the DS lite, what would be the best way to clean the contacts?

    i tried blowing into it, but it only fixes the problem temporarily. i still have to eject/re-insert from time to time. i would like to clean it better than just blowing into it.

    A can of compressed air will work well.

    Also sometimes putting a small folded piece of paper between the card and the DS will create a better contact.
