    I have a DSTT card, and it's frustrating me a LOT.
    Whenever I try to insert the card, it's always like "There is no DS card inserted". I've blown really hard on the card and the slot. I've even used a cotton swab to clean the slot.
    I'm pretty sure it's not my DS's problem, because whenever I insert my Nintendogs game chip, it works without blowing anything.

    I can still play games on it, but I have to insert my DSTT card in like, 30-something times in order for it to work. And by then, I don't have enough breath to play. Now it seems I need to blow it like 50 times to for it to work.
    Maybe it's working at first, but as long as I turn off the power, and turn it on again, it says "There is no DS card inserted" again. [​IMG]

    That is happening to me as well and it's really starting to piss me off. Sometimes tapping the card works.

    Soldering any lose connections might help, If the chip is lose from the circuit board that is...

    It could be visable as a hire crack in the solder
