Question about Datel Action Replay for Nintendo DS

AR says 'insert game cart', when a game is already inserted...

My action replay has all the codes I entered still in it memory. However, the dog knocked it down and now it won't work. When turned on, the AR screen comes up, but it says to 'insert game cart'. Problem is, the game is already inserted. I tried cleaning it, but that didn't work. Can anyone help? This is the lamest problem. I pay about $25 for the Action Replay, and then it stops working for the only game I wanted to cheat in. Of course, that game is Pokemon Diamond. The Nisumori solution unfortunately did not work for me.

I have this problem too and I am trying to find a better way to fix this, but here's a simple solution so far:

1. Put in your AR and go the the code menu for you game.
2. Select any codes you want to use.
3. Take out the AR and insert the game.
4. Press the START icon that should now be showing.

NOTE: If the game being played is reset or you used Soft Reset the codes turn off.

Try reseting your action replay, to do this go onto www.codejunkies.com/support and follow the link. If you do do this all the cheats will be wiped and you'll have to use a code manager to add the default codes back on. I hope this helps, Xamous

My dsi action replay won't work on my dsi but it works on my ds. Why is that?


I heard that the DSi prevents the AR from working because of a kind of security system.

After you insert the AR device and turn on the system, you'll see the "Insert Game Cart" message blipping across the screen. From there you have to remove the AR device while your system is on and replace it with your desired DS game cartridge and then the "Start/GO" button will appear, fully functional and ready to operate.

Don't even bother trying to get the Code Manager to smarten up, just add and edit your desired codes manually from there on. After all newer software on the dsi when compared to the ds so datel may have to make a new AR for the dsi or.... ur AR may be bust as datel's build quality is not the best. So try the AR on older ds's if it works thn new sofware prevents it so you may have to buy a specific AR or if it dosnt work on a old ds thn u know u got a knackered up AR device.

R4 cart not working with Action Replay


There is no need for AR if your R4 works.
R4 should allow AR codes inside, thus you don't need the AR since it is built in your R4.

My Action Replay doesn't read games


It seems as though you don't have pokemon platinum on the code list.
Add it from action replay code manager and add the codes.
(first get the master code of what version of pokemon platinum you have)

I cant press next after i put in a code


Please make sure that you are entering the Game ID correctly. Follow these steps to find the Game ID before beginning the code entry process: •Turn on the Nintendo DS with the Action Replay inserted •At the Main Menu when you are instructed to “Insert Game Cart”, remove the Action Replay and insert the game. •On the top screen of the DS, the name of the game (or Unknown Game) will appear. •The number under the Game Name is the Game ID. Please be sure to include the dash when entering the Game ID into the Action Replay.

If this did not solve your problem, please leave a comment and I will get back to it as soon as I can.

ACTION REPLAY DS MEGA PROBLEM


I had the same problem, the solution is kinda simple (at least for me). The DS Action Replay after a while will not seat correctly, just pull the DS AR out => press the AR back in the DS firmly, then place the DS Cart into the slot. this should help. Also you may try plugging in the usb cord and then turning on the DS. It may be an Update problem.

AR says 'insert game cart', when a game is already inserted...


Try pushing the DS cart out of the Action Replay cartridge about a millimeter.

Action Replay; problem starting


You need to reset the AR, just hold down A, B, select, and start when poering it on, hold them down until the "not liscenced" screen shows up. This will flash the memory on the AR and you will need to re-enter codes though
