    Hi dear members, i have a legit copy of phantom hourglass that doesn't work. It is recognised by my ds lite and my 3ds, but after the nintendo logo show off, there's a red message that say "Data could not be read". I tried alcohol and, still, it doesn't work. Thanks in advance. Cordially,

    Well . .Since you own the game, could always dl a copy from somewhere on the net.. Now you got more than a few options to chose how you play it

    Well, playing a game on emulator isn't the best thing.

    I heavily doubt he meant by using an emulator. If you have CFW of any kind downloaded on your 3ds, you can (guilt free since you bought a hard copy) download a .CIA file of Phantom Hourglass and play it on your 3ds with the CFW. Its pretty much like having a digital copy of the game from the game store.

    Also, I would think your game isnt running because either the data in the card managed to get messed up, or something like liquid, food, dust, etc. Got inside of the card and just... Poof. Wreaked it :/ happens after a while.

    It's a DS game, not a 3DS game, so there's no CIA file to download.

    Do you own a DS flashcart? If not, that would be my recommendation.

    Oooohhh crap that's right. Phantom Hourglass was a DS game. Derp. If I'm not mistaken, there are ways to download DS games too though, right?

    A DS flashcart is the only option compatible with Phantom Hourglass, last I checked.

    Crap you're right... Bootstrap has Spirit Tracks available, but not Phantom Hourglass. :sad:
