    I've heard of game cards being hot, but not literally!

    [​IMG] Is there any way you could open the flashcart and take a couple of pictures for us?

    Holy crap...I've never seen that happen before. Smoke rising from flash carts...? Is that even possible? I've gamed non-stop before on my DS for like 10+ hours straight and haven't faced 'smoke problems' before.

    Send them an email and explain what happened. They will probably ask you to send it to them and they will ship you a brand new one. Explain to your parents It's not your fault, you just got unlucky as It's a faulty one.

    I know it sucks, but I promise you they aren't all like that. In fact, first time I've heard of that happening to anyone...you must have gotten a bad one, to say the least. [​IMG]

    You did something wrong, obviously.
