This is a hardware problem, and there is no doubt about it. I would call the support number that should be listed on the product's box, and I would see if there are any ways to fix this. If not, you may have to just buy a new one. Sorry :(

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.

AR won't read any games anymore!


Have you tried updating the AR firmware to the most recent update. That should work. If not try reinstalling it with your disk that the AR came with

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)

AR will not read my games.


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

Action replay


Have you tried inserting the game while the DS was off? I too find that the Action Replay doesn't recognize when you insert a game while the AR and DS is on. So you may just need to turn off your DS, insert the game, and then turn on your DS and activate the codes
