Action replays are not sponsered by nintendo. they're not supposed to work well with the ds. they glitch up a lot. if you use it too much it can really screw up your system for good. my advice to you is never trust an AR for any system. they're not the least bit reliable.

have the exact same problem with mine, except its not unkown, but the 2 white bars freezing and stuff. what you need to do is restart your AR by turning off the DS and holding start select and some other button then type in the game name and id again. than it should work just fine
There are two possible reasons why it won't work
1. You used may have used to many cheats at once which overloaded the Action Replay.
2. I have noticed that sometimes there are a few bad codes that cause the game to mess up and freeze when the Action Replay is used.
Happy Fixing :u)
Please make sure that you are entering the Game ID correctly.
Follow these steps to find the Game ID before beginning the code entry process:
•Turn on the Nintendo DS with the Action Replay inserted
•At the Main Menu when you are instructed to “Insert Game Cart”, remove the Action Replay and insert the game.
•On the top screen of the DS, the name of the game (or Unknown Game) will appear.
•The number under the Game Name is the Game ID.
Please be sure to include the dash when entering the Game ID into the Action Replay.
If this did not solve your problem, please leave a comment and I will get back to it as soon as I can.
first see if it will do any other games, if not you should either turn the ds on with action replay in it and take out the action replay, put the game in go to codes do what you want click start it will say insert action replay do so, than after it saves put in game then it should play,[maybe not it usually works] or Try resetting the hardware by following these steps: 1/ With the console powered off, hold A+B. 2/ Power up the console while still holding A+B. 3/ As soon as the Nintendo screen is displayed, before our screen stating this product is not endorsed by Nintendo, press and hold Start and Select while keeping hold of A+B. 4/ Continue to hold these buttons until the Main Action Replay screen is displayed, then release. Your product is reset, and will accept codes once more. I do not have credit. these instructions were from codejunkies.com (creators of AR). then try uploading them on the computor.
you can reconnect your ds+AR and you can put the codes back on there by clicking and draging one of codes list from codejunkies.com if you have your Action Replay Code Manager installed, which should come on a disc you bought with your AR
okay the same dang thing happened to me and i do have an answer but make sure you keep this in mind in the future the most likely reason that happened was while the action replay was saving you turned your game off don't do that i did it twice and well it sucks big time but in case you do it again save this to your desktop by copying and pasting on a notepad okay! the fix is simple: Try resetting the hardware by following these steps: 1/ With the console powered off, hold A+B. 2/ Power up the console while still holding A+B. 3/ As soon as the Nintendo screen is displayed, before our screen stating this product is not endorsed by Nintendo, press and hold Start and Select while keeping hold of A+B. 4/ Continue to hold these buttons until the Main Action Replay screen is displayed, then release. Your product is reset, and will accept codes once more.
also afterwards you need to know a game id ill give you my metroid game's click add new game and type in a letter or two randomly and click the next button thingy then type in
AMHE-187B29B5 and click next after that have your game in the action replay and start the game up as soon as you see your games beginning credits you can switch off the ds and it will then be able to be updated!
also after you fix your ds spread this on forums like this one as answers to people's questions so that other people won't spend forever finding an answer like we did!
