    My Ds lite can read all my bames but it can't or won't read my action replay when i put it in. It just goes to the screen on your DS where you pick if you want to do pictochat, Ds download, or you DS game (which shows up blank with the replay in) or a advance game.

    I put my action replayt ds into the game slot, and it just says, on the ds screen (it doesn;t go to the action replay main screen) "There is no game card inserted" I've tried cleaning it, cleaning the ds game slot, but it sitll won't work. It can play my normal games, though.

Have a good blow where you insert your card, if it still doesnt work take it back for a replacement, you dont need to set up any settings what so ever

I found the solution on Datel's site.
When it says "Insert Game Cart"
take your Action Replay out of your DS,
and put the game your trying to play into the slot.
It SHOULD work.
It did for me atleast.
I hope I helped!

Action replay doesnt play

try taking out the action replay and give it a good blow where the contacts are, also give the ds a good blow where the cartridge goes, thats either the problem or you may have updated the ds to the latest firmware and this does cause problems with action replace and r4 cards so that might be your problem, if you had another ds or no anyone with another ds then try the card in theirs, that way you can make sure the card works

Put game into action replay and it says insert game card help

I had the exact same problem as you, and I solved it. The only way to do it is to keep inserting and taking out the game card, and blowing into the DS card slot and the gold things on the lower back of the game card. After doing this about 3-5 times, the action replay should finally get the message that there is a game card in the slot. Hope this helps!
