Question about Nintendo Pokemon Diamond for DS

3 Answers

Nintendo DS start up menu disappeared.

I don't know what my daughter did last night while playing her Nintendo DS dogs game, but now her main menu that used to come up when you turned it on doesn't work anymore - the place where you select what game you want to play if you have both types of games in the system: Example: Nintendo Dogs in the DS slot and Hasbro games in the GameBoy slot. When the DS is turned on and she pushes start what ever DS game is in the slot automatically starts now. I found the work around for her to be able to play GameBoy games - she just has to take out her DS game, but is there a way to get the start up menu back????

    I put the game in the slot, on the home page it shows the game is in the system, but it does not initiate the game and only shows a white screen

Take out all of the games in the ds then the menu should come up then click the little ds picture at the bottom. that will take you to another menu. click on the wrench in the pink box, then click the top box which has an arrow pointing into a box. click the top box which says manual mode then press confirm. the ds will go off then when you turn it on it should go to the menu even with a game in. hope this helps! =)

I have found a solution: turn off the Nintendo, then hold down the top of the two small buttons (the start button) while you switch on and it boots up. Then hey presto! the menu reappears.

I bought a used Nintendogs DS game for my daughter and would like to reset it. Anyone know how?


Pu the game in , turn your device on hold A, B, Y, X, L and R. Keep holding it down until it says "Would you like to erase?" also you may need to hold the stylus in your mouth when you press all these buttons start the game and then confirm you like to reset the game , Thanks

I bought a used ds game for my daughter but cant erase the old info


To delete your whole game on nintendogs just press and hold the a, b, x, y, l, and r buttons all at the same time while the game is loading prior to the title screen appearing. (Right when it says nintendo) But beware if you erase all saved data, it and your puppies can never be recovered.

To delete just one dog go to the Dog Hotel and choose donate. Pick the dog you want to get rid of and you'll never see that dog again.

Naming the Nintendog


Unfortunatly you can't rename your dog but you could try donating it and buying it back or start the game over again To do this at the start of the game(when there is a white screen)hold in x,a,b,y,R and L at the same time. If it is a dog you received in bark mode just do it again! Sorry i couldn't be more help! Good luck with whatever your daughter decides to do!

Dog learns name, then won't respond


That has happened to me a lot. I think that the problem is that she isn't teaching the dog fast enough. by that I mean that she might play the game one day, wait a few days then play it again.

Fixing this problem is simple. When the screen says, " Nintendo" in bright red letters and you hear dog barks, press the following controls at once: L, R, A, B, X, Y, START, and SELECT. It will ask you if you want to delete the profile, say yes, and then the game starts all over as if it was new!

Hope it helps~

Reseting Nintendogs?


You cannot actually reset the game; you have to sell your dog and then buy a new one!
