Question about Datel Action Replay for Nintendo DS

1 Answer

DS won't connect to PC

I installed everything properly, I've got the driver software and everything, and it still won't connect. I even reset the AR, so now there are no codes on it.
This is on a Vista running laptop.
Anyone know what I should do?

When i inputted a code my touch screen had red and blue stripes sliding down it

Oh, yes, that problem. I hate that problem.
There is no way to get around it.
You must get a new one, sorry to say.
But here is what normally causes it:

You attempted to install codes onto your AR before the Driver Software finished installing.
You damaged your AR in some way.
or, finally,
Your AR was mishandled in the store/pawn shop/wherever you got it at.

It is usually the second or third one.
Just be more cautious if you plan on getting another, which I did, and mine is working fine.

OK I figured the solution to this problom, Well All You Have To Do Is Have A Micro SD CARD And a DSi!
1. Plug Your Micro SD card Into Your AR ds/Dsi
2.Plug Your Ar Ds/Dsi Into Your Ds/DSi Warning: Do Not Turn On your Ds/Dsi
3. While Keeping Your AR DS/Dsi Inside your system Get your wire and plug it into your ar and Your Computer
4. Open Ar manager and It will work

Why it keeps on saying there is no room and theres nothing there

Are you using this on a DSI? This is only compatible for a DS light/ Original DS. If this is not your problem try running the program DSsharkPRo.exe while your AR is connected to your PC. If this does not fix it, make sure the motherboard is working properly. Using the appropriate screwdriver, unscrew the back and make sure everything is connected correctly according the Datel AR interior images which can be found on their website.

My Ds Action Replay Went BLANK!

i have had a similar prob it wiped all the games andm then i could not put more on because it went multi coloured when i tried so i hap to reset the entire thing to do so(source codejunkies):

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.
  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

Action replay when i plug in my ds and load code manager it says waiting for ds even though it is plugged in

IF you are running Vista 64, the issue is the driver on the disk is incompatible, thus the pc will never see the ds. However, I have found a workaround. First make sure the DS is on and plugged in and the Action replay Manager is launched. On the DS click on the mouse so it should read updating software. Then, go into device Manager via the Control Panel, there you will see NDS and an exclamation mark. Right click and choose to update the driver or properties. Then choose Browse My computer for driver software... then let me pick from a list... then fo the manufacturer shoose: Standard USB Host Controller and for the Model choose Unknown. It will pick it up instantlly. Voila.. Good Luck! and what a pain!! V
