After doing a bit of Googling, the Gameboy slot might be broken.
Put the games in a friend's DS, and try there.
If that doesn't work, then I don't know.

Have you been messing around with the time on your DS?

Yeah, when you change the clock in the DS, it messes up the migrating options.
I wasn't able to migrate my Pokemon from Emerald to Diamond because of this.
I waited and the problem eventually fixed itself.
How long has this been going on for you?

I only got fire red 3 days ago and I did the time thing yesterday. So I can't migrate for say a week or two? Or months.

No, it'll be more like a few days.
I guess just wait until Monday or Tuesday, then try again.

Well, that just made getting more starters and version exclusives a little easier then :)
Update us in this thread in a few days if anything has changed.

You can't migrate from FR/LG/R/S/E to Black/White. You HAVE to migrate to D/P/Pt/HG/SS with the Pal Park then you can transfer them from D/P/Pt/HG/SS to Black/White through the PokeTransfer. You can't skip the D/P/Pt/HG/SS step. :P

You definitely sure you've been to the Pal Park and have the National Pokedex (seen all of the Sinnoh Pokemon)?
