Action replay code manager doesnt see the action replay

I have installed the action replay code manager and I tried connecting my action replay to my computer. However, the manager doesnt seem to know that my ar is in my ds, that it is on and it is turned on. There was an error message that said: You need to connect your Action Replay before it can be updated.

    My DS cannot be found after several installs, reinstalls, does not see the DS thru the USB cable. All I can say is this product sucks, do not recommend purchasing, waste of $$$.

Many are experiencing this, what you are looking at here is a faulty action replay. go to the Datel website and submit your serial number to them, it will immediatly say whether or not your AR is from the time period when they had a problem with the internal USB reading system, if it is, then send it in and one will be shipped withing 10-12 weeks

Action replay doesn't let me add codes in custom code list!!!!!


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.

* Multicolored 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.

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 need to restart your action replay.

to do this follow these steps.

1. hold A and B while turning on your DS.

2. at the Nintendo screen hold start and select.(still holding A and B.)

3. Let go when the screen saying, nintendo dose not''blah blah'' this product.

4. Turn off when you see the action replay title screen.

Once restarted try and add a code.
I had the same problem, but i did the above.

Action replay code manager just stopped working?


Your problem is tricky, but solvable. The problem you are dealing with here is your AR ID is not matching up with the AR disc, using a Virtual Splint you can have a program called Floating Point create a proxy ID for both of them which enables you to use it without problems.

Action Replay DS - "Load Failed" Error


Have you tried re-installing the Action Replay Code Manager through the disc? I find that re-installation works for most computer programs when the first-time-installation fails. Just choose the most recommended settings (don't do manual stuff) and try again. If it still does not work:

-Check to see if your internet is connected properly
-Check the disc for any scratches; Scratches on the top of the disc are LETHAL to memory!
