    too many possible reasons.

    could be a hardware failure.
    lack of contact in the cards to the system

    or your DS is bricked. lol

    Backup your files, reformat your microSD card, and then re-install the firmware.

    charlieiscool12,

    First, take our your microSD card from the DSTT, insert the DSTT into the NDS, and turn on the NDS (with no microSD card in it). You should get an icon that says "No Card" I believe.

    If that works, try inserting a newly-formatted (using the Panasonic formatter), blank microSD card into the DSTT, insert the DSTT into the NDS, and turn on the NDS. You should see an icon that says "Menu?"

    If that works, install the firmware. Version 1.15 is the newest version. There should be a file named "TTMENU.DAT" and a folder named "TTMENU" (which should contain a bunch of files). Just drag the "TTMENU.DAT" file and "TTMENU" folder (and its contents) to your microSD card. Make a folder named "games" and put a few .nds files in it. Make sure you ALWAYS use the "safely remove hardware" utility before you remove the microSD card.

    If you haven't been removing your microSD card safely, that is almost certainly it. Windows buffers files and doesn't actually completely write the files to the microSD card until you use "safely remove hardware" which means that your files will almost certainly get corrupted.

    If you get a microSDHC card make sure you get a class 6.

    Just reformat the microSD card and copy them again from your PC. You do have a backup of all your files on your PC, right?
