Question about Datel Action Replay for Nintendo DS

3 Answers

My Action Replay won't recognize any of my games!

I started up my Action Replay, and although it used to work, whenever it tries to read a game, the top screen says "unknown game." I cannot find a straight answer anywhere as to why it would do this or how to fix it. Can somebody PLEASE help me? If I can't fix it soon, I'll probably snap and just stick it in my garbage disposal to see what happens. Thanks, y'all!

Yeah mine did that to.
Now to fix it you may lose all of your codes but your Ar recognizes your game.
1. Get the code for your game. Its written under unknown game.
2. write that code down somewhere and turn off the council. (The whole game)
3. remove the game but insert the Action replay. And go to add new game or something of the like. the button you use to add codes takes you there.
4. punch in the game code that you wrote down in step 1. after punching in the name of the game.
5. once it is added to the game list shut off council again.
6. reinsert game disk and action replay. It should recognize your game now.
7.your codes are gone. which sucks. (or maybe its because I messed it up to the point that i reset my code list) I reccommend finding and copy/pasting the codes you had in a word doccument of some form and saving in the computer as you go just in case. E-mail it to yourself so you can acess the saved codes anywhere. sorry for the inconvenience. when mine went out i tried to fix it with the game was in the AR and all I got were blue/red stripes pulling a freaky. Thats why its hard to fix. The manuel is vauge around troubleshooting.
Sorry for your troubles have a nice day.
I shall post the azure flute code and the x999 masterball code for pokemon diamond here. Hope someone gets something out of it.

My action replay keeps freezing whether i use codes or not whenever i push start game. It just stays there, this is the 2nd one i have bought because of this. please help, what is wrong?


Probably just because it's and Action Replay. They aren't very stable... I think the best thing for you to do is just buy another one. Sorry.

Animal Crossing Wild World wont work on my action replay


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

My action replay doesn't work with the game Animal crossing Wild


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)

The DS does not recognize that the cartridge is plugged in


try taking out the cartridge and blowing out any dust or debris that might me stuck in there. the ar cant read a cartridge that has anything blocking the memory of ur game. OR you could have accidentally deleted the game from ur codelist,which is not good.

My nintendo ds will not recognize my games with my action replay


It's because it doesn't know the I.D. of the game. But you can find the I.D. on google or yahoo. Then put in the I.D. precisley as it says and then put in cheats and wa-la it works!
