    I have a DSTT card, and it's frustrating me a LOT.
    Whenever I try to insert the card, it's always like "There is no DS card inserted". I've blown really hard on the card and the slot. I've even used a cotton swab to clean the slot.
    I'm pretty sure it's not my DS's problem, because whenever I insert my Nintendogs game chip, it works without blowing anything.

    I can still play games on it, but I have to insert my DSTT card in like, 30-something times in order for it to work. And by then, I don't have enough breath to play. Now it seems I need to blow it like 50 times to for it to work.
    Maybe it's working at first, but as long as I turn off the power, and turn it on again, it says "There is no DS card inserted" again. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    If it shows you that :"There is no DS card inserted".
    1. Turn off your ds.
    2. Use your finger to push the Ds TT card to the end of the slot-1.
    IF IT DOES WORK:
    It may be coused by something that felt in your Ds 1-SLOT.
    SOLUTION:
    Try blowing in Ds 1-slot...or use somethingto clean it.

    IF DOSENT WORK:
    Hmmm...
    Try to think of somethink that you done wrong.

    Hope i helped [​IMG]...

    I bought two of these ages ago and both give me similar trouble (one tends to work only intermittently like you state and the other simply never works). I simply don't use them any more. Also, there were lots of fakes going around back then (probably still are) and who knows.

    A shame, 'cause I was a fan of the cart quality (no bumps and proper 'teeth' protecting the gold contacts). Software was OK, too.

    This is a common problem with a lot of flashcarts - paper shim trick!

    You need to put a piece of thin card or folded paper between the back of the DS Slot 1 and the DSTT - this pushes the two sets of contacts together.

    Yeah, use the paper trick.

    I used to have a fake DSTT. It worked great until the contacts RUBBED OFF. And then it managed to short itself and blow one of the fuses [​IMG]

    Come to think of it, I have the worst luck with flashcarts.
