Action Replay DS won't work with Pokemon pearly version
I use the AR and select the codes I want. Then I start the game and it reaches the title slide but then it whites out and starts over. It then can load all the way to the game but the codes are not effective.

go to http://us.codejunkies.com/support/article.aspx?article_id=434
they show you how to update
Reset it. To do this, hold down A and B while turning the DS on, then at the blank white screen, hold Start and Select while still holding A and B. At the title screen, release the buttons and restart the device if the screen goes white. And there you go. A fixed Action Replay. Now you just have to update it in AR Code Manager.
You have to erase your action replay.Shut off DS.Turn on and hold a,b,select,and start until it turns to the title screen of AR .Then type in the game/name then type CPUE-D074D1B3. For pokeomn platinum.
Same thing happened to me, the problem could be that the game code was entered wrong into the Action Replay, there are a few things you could do about it. You can take out you Action Replay Code Manager CD and delete the game and re-enter it. Or if you don't have the Code Manager CD, go into the internet and look up the code for Pokemon Diamond Version, and fix it on your Action Replay.
Don't return it! Your Action Replay DS is corrupted. To fix it, turn the DS on (with AR in it) while holding A and B. Then, at the white screen, after "Nintendo DS" but before "This product is not licensed or endorsed by Nintendo", hold down Start and Select while still holding A and B. A few seconds will pass and then the title screen will appear. A few seconds after it appears, release all the buttons. The screen will go white, so just restart the device. Now do a Quick Update in Action Replay Code Manager (on the PC) by pressing the Quick Update button in the corner of the window while the AR (still inserted in the DS) is connected via USB. After it's done, viola! A fixed Action Replay.
Try resetting the hardware by following these steps:
1/ With the console powered off, hold A+B. 2/ Power up the console while still holding A+B. 3/ As soon as the Nintendo screen is displayed, before our screen stating this product is not endorsed by Nintendo, press and hold Start and Select while keeping hold of A+B. 4/ Continue to hold these buttons until the Main Action Replay screen is displayed, then release. Your product is reset, and will accept codes once more.
I do not have credit. these instructions were from codejunkies.com (creators of AR). then try uploading them on the computor.
Sorry, my last desc should be ignored here are all to solutions to problems. I know:
Prob: Two white Screens: Solution: none so far, have emails sent to Datel. see what happens. This occurs when attempting save codes with the DS and the AR is pulled out or DS powered off. My suggestion if you get a new one, only update codes using the PC software.
Prob: AR keeps asking for game cart. insertion: Solution: remove AR and put in game cart.
Prob: AR not enough memory to update codes: Solution: there is more bugs in their software/firmware that doesn't really know when items are deleted and space is free. You must reset AR cart. and then use the PC software to reload all the codes:
a) First I would update the AR PC software (no DS AR connected) b) Connect DS with AR to PC then update the AR firmware c) Disconnect DS AR from PC d) DS off hold A+B when TURN ON DS when DS logo shows press START+SELECT with A+B still down as well, hold for a while. turn off DS e) Reconnect to PC, turn on DS and drag the PC US codes to the DS side. (Note: I had to do 4 & 5 a couple of times it finally worked)
Prob: AR PC software not seeing the DS AR connection: Solution: The PC drivers are not being found for the NDS link. You need to do the following:
a) close the AR PC software, and disconnect the AR DS. b) connect the AR DS and then the windows new hardware driver install window pops up. must select using the manual browse option. c) go the the action replay directory either on the action replay CD you bought or from a extracted version from the web. (NOTE: this is not the installed location, but before where the setup.exe exists) I had lost my CD and did about 10 minutes and found a .rar of the source code. d) pick the action replay subdirectory and click on install e) you should see the NDS link drivers being installed. f) start the AR PC software and attempt to connect the DS AR it should work.
