    hello,
    i put on this clear protective case on my dsi. didn't like it and had a hell of a time getting it off. when the DSi is closed now there is a small gap instead of the top and bottom fitting together sealed when closed. Is this normal because i didn't check before i put the case on. thank you!

    my guess is a loose hinge its normal as the ds is aged (opened and closed)

    huh, i thought i posted in this thread.. well, my internet fell away

    anyway, here's what i found when i first read your post:
    my dslite (no protectors) has a ~0.25 mm gap when closed. it's about 2 years old.

    edit: WHAT THE FUCK-- it fell away again, just as i want to post this.

    thanks, i just got the DSi today so if it's supposed to do that when it's two years old then i messed up putting on the case.

    no, i dont think so, as i treat my ds very carefully. it's not very visible anyway, you just see a shadowy line.
