My Action Replay DS Fails to Update

Up until a few weeks ago, my ARDS was working fine, until I tried to update it. As soon as I plugged in my USB, my updating screen shows the following message: ERROR! and repeats it several times, it will not allow to update my action replay, in short. I have tried resetting it many many times, but to no avail, any and all help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

    When my ARDS is hooked up to my computer and I try to update it (all my codes deleted themselves recently, and I HAVE tried resetting it MANY times to no avail) a message pops up saying "could not open file". Also, the subscriptions and my custom codelist both say "load failed". What should I do? I've tried everything! There are no updates and datel's customer service sucks! Please help!

The ARDS is really finicky from what I've seen with it. What I suggest doing is putting in the ARDS and turning on the DS, then plug it in to your PC, when you run the Code Manager on your PC make sure you check for software upgrades. Also make sure that it loads completely on your PC and give it a few to load, on my brother's DS it auto detected that he needed a firmware update and the updates worked fine since (just updated it the day after Christmas).

Your Action Replay DS hardware may require resetting if you are experiencing any of the following problems: * Code Manager PC software is reporting that Action Replay DS does not contain enough free space when it actually contains no codes. * Code Manager PC software is reporting the console`s battery is low when it?s actually fully charged. * Multicoloured bars are shown on the screen after you confirm the entry of a game ID when trying to manually enter codes. * You can use the Code Manager PC software without any problems until the Action Replay DS is connected via USB set to the update mode on the console, at which point Windows shows a run time error. If you are experiencing any of these problems, please follow the steps below to reset the Action Replay DS hardware. Please beware that resetting the Action Replay DS hardware will not restore a default codelist, and any codes which are stored on the Action Replay DS will be erased. With your console powered off insert the Action Replay DS Hold down buttons A+B Turn your console on With A+B still held down, as soon as you see the Action Replay DS license screen press and hold down buttons START+SELECT so that you now have 4 buttons held down Hold all 4 buttons down for around 10 seconds until the Action Replay DS loads to it`s home screen If Action Replay DS doesn?t hold on the license screen for around 10 seconds when you do this, you may need to turn off and try again whats an ard? from code junkies

Your replay needs re-setting....
  1. With your console powered off insert the Action Replay DS
  2. Hold down buttons A+B
  3. Turn your console on
  4. With A+B still held down, as soon as you see the Action Replay DS license screen press and hold down buttons START+SELECT so that you now have 4 buttons held down
  5. Hold all 4 buttons down for around 10 seconds until the Action Replay DS loads to it`s home screen
  6. If Action Replay DS doesn’t hold on the license screen for around 10 seconds when you do this, you may need to turn off and try again
You can tell if it needs re-setting by...;

* Code Manager PC software is reporting that Action Replay DS does not contain enough free space when it actually contains no codes.
* Code Manager PC software is reporting the console`s battery is low when it’s actually fully charged.
* Multicoloured bars are shown on the screen after you confirm the entry of a game ID when trying to manually enter codes. * You can use the Code Manager PC software without any problems until the Action Replay DS is connected via USB set to the update mode on the console, at which point Windows shows a run time error.
If you are experiencing any of these problems, please follow the steps below to reset the Action Replay DS hardware. Please beware that resetting the Action Replay DS hardware will not restore a default codelist, and any codes which are stored on the Action Replay DS will be erased.

Well for #1, the current action replay does not work on the DSi. It only works for DS and DS lite- As for #2, I think the action replay has to be active in a DS or DS lite

My action replay code manager is empty and I want to add pokemon


Heres your problem, I believe you just recently purchased this AR, the new version of action replay require a software update found on Datel's website, after downloading this software your Domain Suffix of your Optical Drive will automatically replace the program with the newer one. Open up your winsock processor and buffer the Native file of your AR back into your fluxus core before adding codes to your action replay, if this does not fix the problem, submit a complaint to the Datel Hacking Team located at PO box 45265 North Ridge, CA. This whole process should take anywhere from 10-12 weeks to fully resolve
