    I assume you're talking about the actual DS game card and not an actual ROM correct? If this is the case, it depends on what cycle it was washed on [​IMG] just kidding

    It is hit and miss with alot of people. Ive heard of GBA carts going through the wash and living. Actually, it was on GBAtemp I read about it. So it very well may work. In my opinion, you have greater chances of it working than not.

    It might still be alive. My old Pokemon Red cart went through the wash more times than I can count and it still works. [​IMG]

    It's retarded to leave your electronics in a washing machine in the first place.

    i remember my mom washing my gameboy games that i had in my pockets before, and they still worked lol, i dont know about a ds game though, the old gba games were pretty big so im sure that protected them, with the ds games, the pins stick out.

    Um, the pins stick out of the GBA cart, too.

    As long as the there were no capacitors and it was completely dry, it should still work.

    Yeah, I left my Super Mario 64 DS cart in the wash and it still works fine. No label anymore though. I'm glad it didn't get destroyed, because I took the time to get everything in that game.

    That also reminds me of the time me and my friend went to the pool, and we brought old SNES games and floppy disks, and we planted them in places in the pool - oh God, was that funny when people found them. [​IMG]

    It could work, just don't try it when it's still wet.

    I've never left anything in a washing machine either, but last year I found my housemate's house keys wedged in the rubber seal under the door. He'd been looking for them all week [​IMG]
