    I got Super Mario 64 DS, and the game is recognized without an issue.
    However, when I start it, I get the error "An Error Has Occurred. Hold Down the POWER Button"
    I just got this, unfortunately at a pawn shop so I can't return it.
    Is there anything I can do to fix it, or did I just get a dead card?
    I have tried cleaning it (already have cleaned over 5 games without an issue, so I know what I'm doing.), swapping between games, and disabling WiFI.

    Found out it's a fake card. It says Licensed By Nintendo on the label (Nintendo has no reason to license anything of there own IP), the board at the bottom where the pins are are a different color then my other games, it has the wrong product code (NTR-ASMP-USA), and at that point I opened it to validate my theory, only to find a blob not a chip.

    That’s why you always have to ask the store seller if it works, and always check if it’s a fake.
