    I was in my car and i use my ds for music. So i hop i and turn on the key and grab my ds and open it to get the tunes bumpin. the hinge snaps clean on the right side! i just stared for a minute while the horror of it all seeped into my mind. What do i do? get a new one? or just wait till i just breaks all the way? i dont know.

    That happened to me, though as mine was way past its warranty I didn't think Nintendo would be very appreciative. So i got a new case off Dealextreme ($20) and fitted it, and now it works as good as new and looks teh awesome.

    So you can try Nintendo, though if it is out of warranty they will likely be reluctant to fix it.

    there's no harm in phoning them just to make sure.

    I'd buy a replacement case. Then again, maybe NoA sucks less than NoE

    What does this replacement case look like and could you buy it at EBGames/BestBuy/FutureShop/WalMart/GameStop in Canada? How much does it cost also?
    I have the same problem also, but mines is a bit more severe.
