    Hi guys. is there a way to clean the slot 1 game card contacts and the slot 1 reader contacts( the game card reader in the ds)? my ds wont read my r4 card sometimes and i have to blow gently on the contacts and then it works but sometimes ends up failing anyway.is there an easy way which doesnt require taking my ds apart? thanks in advance!

    I think its more the card contacts rather then the slot 1 contacts, I got an old card and a brand new card. The new card works everytime when I insert it, the old one takes a couple of times of in & out before it starts. I would say the card contacts are cheap (like the cards) and wear out after repeated use. I`ve had 1 old card for about 2 years, its a pain to get it working but eventually it does.
