    Could be a contact issue, does it say "There is no DS Card inserted" in the DS menu, or is it blank?

    Either the R4 is dead, or it's a contact issue.

    Have a read of the contact section from my Acekard guide http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=218103#contacts

    It that doesn't work, unscrew the screw on the back, open the cart up and have a look if anything is loose. Try removing the PCB and then reseating it.

    Other than that, no idea.

    It turns out that i have to hold the R4 cartridge down then it will have contact then it starts up its fits in the slot perfectly but only works when i hold it down.

    Open the cart up and try moving the PCB lower in the shell.

    Someone else suggested using a hook to physically pull your DS's contacts higher, but it's not something I would suggest unless it's not working with retail games.
