    With a small drill, very carefully. That's the best I can think of anyway I'm afraid

    I don't really understand your question, but if you're trying to unscrew the cover of the battery slot of a DSL, try with a pointy knife of something like that. I've changed my battery for a new one a while ago and I don't have a Phillips screwdriver. Anything with a flat and slim point will do.

    As far as I know, that's the only way. If it's completely stripped you have to drill the top of the screw off. I had to do this when I stripped the screw on my PSP.

    Get the tip of a pen (or something else plastic and small, like the ink tube in teh pen) and melt it with a lighter. Stick it in teh screw and try to unscrew it. Might work if it's not too tight.

    Well what I did was just used force and a knife to brutally rip out the battery cover... as I didn't had a tiny driller, and anyways, that DS is just dead already... pretty much...

    This happened to me too! How necessary is it to have screw? Battery is slotted in firmly as is. Its a right pain removing screw every time you want to change the battery, which is why i ended up stripping it in the first place. Would be way easier not to remove it. It wouldnt fall out unless you shook it really really hard?
