    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Use the tried and true "paper shim" trick.

    Just put a piece of thick paper or card inside the DS with the flashcart so that it pushes the flashcart closer to the contacts. Works wonders.

    Maybe about 3 or 4 folds thick (depending on the thickness of the paper). Thick enough to give a fair bit of resistance.

    How about you just try it before asking stupid questions and waiting for someone to confirm it for you. Just stick a piece of paper in there, why would you need to ask for help doing that? Seriously?
