Pokemon White Cartridge problem.

~Spacial_Rendation~

My copy of Pokemon White, which has been perfectly fine up until this afternoon, has just recently come up with this message everytime I boot the game:

"The saved data could not be accessed.

Please turn the power off and reinsert the Game Card".

I have tried everything.

Using 5 different DSes
Blowing in the slot (and the card)
Cleaning it with a swab

And the message still comes up.

What is wrong with my game?

That message is commonly found on fake games. There's a chance that your game is fake if you bought it somewhere suspicious like ebay or used somewhere. Where did you get it?

if you bought it in the store i recommend taking it back for a replacement sounds like a defective cartridge to me

@ Skitty. I bought it at a Gamestop in Orlando, Florida. New. With a copy of Black that still works. So I highly doubt it's a fake.

@ Maylu: The problem is I bought it from a store halway around the world (I live in Sydney, Australia.) so I don't think I can exactly GO back to Florida to return a faulty game. However, I still have the receipt. So that might help, somehow.

I was thinking of getting it sent somewhere so I can at least get the saved Data off it.

super glue is alot stronger of a glue han the scrool glue and is better than rubber cement
 
it might be a defective carterage, either send it to Nintendo if you can or call the store where you bought it from. thats what i had to do with my pokemon platinum due to it crashing so many times and it worked after nintendo fixed it.

if nintendo wont help you then you will have to open the cartridge and clean the gold things on the circuit board and then use the superglue to reseal the cartridge when circuit board is back in place

I called Nintendo.

The whole cart is screwed. Nothing you can do about it.
