    I`ve had the TT for many months no problem! BUT now it seems the back of the DS near the card is getting hot and at the same time the game playing freezes.
    Does this sound like the fuse wants to blow and a good hint to get a new cart before theres maybe real trouble? Or could it only be that one game giving problems?

    probably over use or something
    just take it easy with the ds
    let it cool down


    the DSTT is going to break and you should get a

    I also have been using a DSTT for a few months now and from the start I noticed that the DS was getting warm particularly where the DSTT is inserted into the DS. Personally I am not too worried about it. I know the DSTT is not good for the DS as it is putting additional strain on the DS but I can't see that it's going to lead to anything more than sweaty palms. If it were me, I'd probably hold out, continue to use the DSTT and if it does take out a fuse, or whatever component it is that decides to give up, then I'd take the plunge and get myself a DSi.

    ...are you using the genuine DSTT?...

    The probable cause of this is your TF card..., try removing the card and you'll feel it hot and not the DSTT... these devices (including your USB flash drives and other memory modules) gets hotter over time and i think its normal...

    im also experiencing the same scenario but still im playing for the rest of the night without problems and worrying my DSTT would blow up...
