When I insert a game card, the software icon doesn't appear on the HOME Menu.

Is the game card inserted properly?

  • Try removing and reinserting the game card.

Inserting the game card

Are the terminals on the game card dirty?

  • If they are dirty, clean the terminals with a soft, dry cloth. Wipe them gently so as not to scratch the terminals.
