Question about Datel Action Replay for Nintendo DS

1 Answer

AR is not recognized by computer, unless as an unknown device

Computer does not recognize action replay, occasionally it shows up as unknown device. Ive heard of accounts of similar such cases hppening with periodic moments where the action replay actually connects, any info regarding such experiances would be great. I have had the opportunity to test a different action replay with the same cable to great success, in fact if I had the AR in the main menu I could plug it in and be brought to the update screen automatically, however this does not happen with the unknown device AR. Sadly my working one broke and upon turning on the system freezes at the very beggining of the nintendo ds welcome screen. (Touch to Continue) Any help very much appreciated

update your action replay from a to z and then it should recognise it after that but if not just do it again but dont push the wire in to far ok.

My Action Replay won't recognize any of my games!


Yeah mine did that to.
Now to fix it you may lose all of your codes but your Ar recognizes your game.
1. Get the code for your game. Its written under unknown game.
2. write that code down somewhere and turn off the council. (The whole game)
3. remove the game but insert the Action replay. And go to add new game or something of the like. the button you use to add codes takes you there.
4. punch in the game code that you wrote down in step 1. after punching in the name of the game.
5. once it is added to the game list shut off council again.
6. reinsert game disk and action replay. It should recognize your game now.
7.your codes are gone. which sucks. (or maybe its because I messed it up to the point that i reset my code list) I reccommend finding and copy/pasting the codes you had in a word doccument of some form and saving in the computer as you go just in case. E-mail it to yourself so you can acess the saved codes anywhere. sorry for the inconvenience. when mine went out i tried to fix it with the game was in the AR and all I got were blue/red stripes pulling a freaky. Thats why its hard to fix. The manuel is vauge around troubleshooting.
Sorry for your troubles have a nice day.
I shall post the azure flute code and the x999 masterball code for pokemon diamond here. Hope someone gets something out of it.

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
