When the unit starts, you see the Warning-Health and Saftey and "Touch the Screen to Start"

In the menu, where the DS Game should appear, its ghosted out and says "There is No DS Card Inserted"

First off, to remove the possibility that its not something extremely simple and overlooked, try this http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/...

Might need to be cleaned. Its the simplest starting point, and needs the least amount of tech. http://www.fixya.com/support/r4080144-ds...

Past that, you can try replacing the Slot-1 slot on the logic board, replace the board, or get a brand new unit. I do emphasize the cleaning first. Being a portable unit, its in pockets, backpacks, greasy hands, who knows what... You get the picture.

my ds won't read a certain game but it will read other games

Look into the card reader slot. If the pins in it are not bent take a fine emery board and clean them with short in/out strokes, move the board over and do it again - until you have cleaned them all. Do not move it side to side, you can bend the pins.

try putting a small stick like a needle behind the game make sure its in the middle it works because it pushes the game down and touches the pin or pins that are too small

I've fixed a few of these by getting an old nail file (the wood ones like a ice lolly stick) and gently sliding it into the slot and filing the gold contacts.
