    I just had a new GBA Expansion Pack but when I try to fit it in slot 2 on my DS it won't go in! How do I get it in?

    What type of DS? Phat or Lite?

    What shape is the cart? Is the cart meant to be used in the Lite? If so, it won't fit in a phat.

    Could you post a picture of your expansion pack?

    Your DS is like this:

    or like this?

    If it's the first one, you have to use the GBA-sized cover for it. Just open your Expansion Pack with a screwdriver, and then replace it in the GBA-sized cover.

    I fixed my post [​IMG] I've just noticed that you should have a GBA-sized shell in the package, you could use that. Refer to my previous post for instructions.

    No, in the picture of the expansion pack, you have two cases, use the big one, the small one is for the Lite.
