I have 2 DS cartridges that freeze on all DS/DSi's that I have tried. I have tried cleaning them with alcohol with no change. Is there any way to fix them?

I don't suppose when the game freezes, you get Vuvuzela's blared at you? -> – VxJasonxV Feb 5 '11 at 7:39

Is one of them Age of Kings?

That DS game has a save game bug that fries the cartridge, making it unusable.

Yes, it is. Does the manufacturer offer replacement at all, or is it garbage? – averyzoe Jul 16 '10 at 4:33

Try and get a refund at the store, if that doesn't work, contact Nintendo.
