Can't get screws out

Trying to open my N3DS to replace the circle pad, but these two screws just don't move. I've looked up other versions of this question but sometimes they link to suggestions that include drilling which sounds like an extremely bad idea. I've heard about the screw extractor set but I want to know if these are even recoverable considering the warning on the one sold by ifixit.

Edit: A link showing the screw I could get out to the ones I can't.

Yeah, added a new link comparing the screws I can get out and the screws I'm concerned about.

Drilling them out is usually a last resort. Try using a piece of cloth between your screws and screwdriver (make sure the bit doesn't slip through the threads). Turn as carefully as you can, and stop if you ever feel like you're making it worse

These screws are pretty stripped. When I had stripped screws, I used a Dremel blade to cut a slit into the screws, but that won't work for this device. I think the precision screw extractor set should work for this screw.

Ordered it then. Will report back when I get a chance to use it.

Can't seem to get these to grip on anything. I'm going to see if I can talk with a local phone repair place before I end up returning these.

@tsukiru Sounds like a good idea. If the screws are drilled out and the casing is damaged, you can always get a replacement shell.
