    do you leave your flash card in your ds all the time? will this cause any damage to the DS or the card?



    thanks for the help.

    I think leaving the game out would allow dust in wouldn't it?
    Hence the creation of the dust cover on the DS Lite

    i left my gba kit in my old gba for over a year once (i wasn't playing it) and nothing happens mate. if you experience issues i would tend to think its pocket dust that got trapped and had no way out.

    Me too....I haven't removed my M3 Real form my Lite since I got it (had to do that paper trick), and I don't plan to remove it either..

    I don't see the reason why it would damage NDS..

    leaving your flashcart in your ds will risk oxidization and eventually rusting from the contact blades, and will eventually spread to the battery and cause it to leak and melt the hardware inside your ds

    And then when you will power up your ds your internal organs will start to melt and you will grow hair on your tongue. After a while you will start to become blue and glowing, and explode shortly after.

    I have never taken my R4 out of my DS and I plan on doing it only when the Acekard will be delivered to me, which is going to be in a couple of days.

    trust me, oxidation is not fun.

    if you take 2nd year organic chemistry, oxidation will be your worst enemy lol.


    once again, thanks for all the input!

    Nintendo actually recommends you keep a game in at all times to prevent dust, it's in the manual nobody reads.

    I had tetris in my original Gameboy for like, 5 years with no problems.

    There should be no harm in leaving a flashcart in your DS at all times. I have ZERO real DS games, so my CycloDS (and before that, the R4) is ALWAYS in there.

    While I do own a few actual GBA carts, I have a flashcart in that slot also. Never had a problem and my DSlite is an original first batch USA release black DSlite.
