    There are 2 screens in the touch screen area of the ds, the touch screen part can be bought for as little as £10 in the uk off ebay. this does not include the lcd screen, if that needs replaced, add another £15-£30. Now I've never replaced a DS, but i have replaced a PSP screen, which was quite easy.

    The replacement screen should come with instructions and a screwdriver, have a look on ebay.

    Good luck.

    Do you mean an original DS or a DS lite?

    Is it DS or DS Lite? The Lite touch screen module is more expensive than the regular one.

    I just replaced the one on my DS Lite a few months ago after dropping it. If you need help replacing it, PM me.

    BTW, if you would rather go through a store instead of through eBay, try http://www.emvee.ca/ That's where I got my replacement module last time. Their prices were very competitive to eBay's prices and provided free shipping, so I went with them instead of getting myself through the risks of eBay.
