The end of one of my game cards is scratched, likely from removing and inserting it a lot. Sometimes it can't even be read because of this. Can someone tell me how to get it fixed without breaking it more or losing my data?

What do you mean by "end"? The contacts, or part of the plastic casing?

I hope your not making the same mistake I did the first day I owned a 3DS.

I would just yank the game out...I didn't know it popped out. I knew it went down via spring but I would just yank them out. So stupid.....learned from it....but luckily my games were fine.

it works with disc based game.

Some people used toothpaste to clean the contacts (on other cartridge); I personally used alcohol to clean my cartridge's contact (on other cartridge based consoles)

Not sure if it fix scratches
