Yes, they can fit.

DS/DS Lite Slot-1 games are exactly the same as DSi Slot-1 games, but Gameboy Advance (GBA) games are not supported by the console.


Any Nintendo DS game which requires an addon that uses the GBA slot, is not supported on the Nintendo DSi (eg. DS Lite internet browser or Guitar Hero: On Tour)


Because of the above reason, do not sell your Nintendo DS Lite if you intend to play Guitar Hero On Tour. :)

Most games, I believe. But, The Guitar HeroTM games do NOT fit the DSi.

Yes, the Nintendo DS lite can play DSi games

Get the game on Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL.

No, the Nintendo DS lite charger is different than the Nintendo DSi and DSi XL

If you mean simply trading one system for the other, then no, you cannot. The Nintendo DSi is worth about $150 while the DS Lite is worth about $110. You can, however, trade in the Nintendo DS Lite and cash for the Nintendo DSi. If you choose that method, you will need about $40 or so more to cover the cost. You can also choose to trade in your Nintendo DS Lite plus a game or two for the Nintendo DSi.

The DS lite and DSi are completely different pieces of hardware. You would have to buy a DSi, you can not turn a DS lite into a DSi

no, you can't download game to a Nintendo DS lite, it only works with a Nintendo DSi or a DSi XL

No, the Nintendo DS lite charger is not the same as the Nintendo DSi charger

Yes, not DS Lite but DSI does, you can also play with the picures. One on outside and inside

Only in the original Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DS Lite. DSi, DSi XL and 3DS do not have a slot to put GBA games into.

On the Original Nintendo DS, and Nintendo DS lite, you can play Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games. But on the Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL, there is no Game Boy or Game Boy Advance slot.

the price of the Nintendo ds lite is $129.99 and the price of the Nintendo dsi is $169.99 making the difference be $40.00

Nintendo Dsi if you do not have alot of gba games because your prob trading in your ds lite if you have a gba or ds and ds lite i recommend dsi

they let you get things and the AR is only for Game Cube,Nintendo DS, Nintendo DSi, and Nintendo DS lite

the Nintendo ds, Nintendo ds lite, Nintendo dsi and Nintendo dsi XL

Nintendo DS and DS Lite are exactly the same except with a few different features on the actual console. A DS game will work on Nintendo DS, DS Lite and DSi as they are all the same platform.

I heard that the Nintendo DSi has a built in camera and a game shop on there. It can access the Internet, and it has more features than the DS Lite.

No, the DSi has its own, separate charger.

the Nintendo ds lite can play GBA games as well...but a DSI cant..well i would say dsi is better(browsing , drawing flipnote , dsi shop...)

It was just called Nintendo DS. Then Nintendo DS Lite, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL.

My DS Lite does that too. It depends on the game. Some games have circuits that don't work anymore, or that are broken or missing. Try blowing on the inside of the DSi game slot and the cartridge. Then make sure it's in the DSi all the way.

DSi Ware games and other downloadable content The Nintendo DSi Shop is specific to the region for which the system was manufactured. For example, a Japanese system can download DSi Ware games and other software only from the Nintendo DSi Shop for the Japanese region, regardless of where the system is being played. Nintendo DSi exclusive game cards Nintendo DSi game cards that are only compatible with Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL (and not Nintendo DS or Nintendo DS Lite) are region locked. This means game cards manufactured for the U.S. market would not work in a system made for another country. Nintendo DS / Nintendo DS Lite game cards Older Nintendo DS and DS Lite software is region-free, so you can play most of that software on a Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DSi XL from any region. It's possible, however, that future Nintendo DS software will incorporate region encoding. In these instances, these games would not work in a system made for another country. Source:

Nintendo the ones who made the wii and the ds,ds lite,dsi,dsi XL and 3ds.

No. the DSi is a few more in.'s then the DS Lite
