    The mic in the DS is a standard part and is in lots of things such as a pc mic , take a look and you will see! very easy to remove from any device and install into your DS.

    You take the old mic and de solder the wires then take the new mice and solder them on there , The microphones you get in cheap pc mic's are the same size so would do the same job! and a simple thanks but no thanks would have dont instead of " please dont reply when you dont know "

    Thinking on if its just not working then it probably is just a simple case of changing the wire or repairing the existing one as the mic won't be damaged...

    If the damage is just to the cable, could you possibly just repair the wire?

    I know you didn't want to do all the soldering and stuff (and I don't blame you) but that way the connector and mic itself will be the right size.

    N.B. you might need extra wire, as the mic wire is only just long enough to reach the socket on the motherboard.
