    Action reply for DS lite says "you must connect your action replay" when I try to do quick update even though everything is connected.

IF it freezes the instant the DS swiches on, then your Action Replay is Bricked.

Don't worry though, there is a way to Unbrick it. You'll need a flashcard and a pc with internet.

Cant figure out how to put cheat codes into ds lite

Making sure the Action Replay turns on every time

Before you start your game(with the AR of course), make sure that everything is right:
  • Is the Action Replay all the way in?
  • Is the game in the action replay straight?
  • Did you charge the DS with the AR in it? (mine works when I do that)
If all of this is right and it still doesn't work...
take the AR out of the DS and the game out of the AR, put it back together and restart the DS.

hope this helps you peoples=^.^=

dont use action replay with animal crossing for a while and dont play your game for a few days and play another game when your done with a game take it out after you turn your power off and it will help prevent your games from freezing in the future

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.

Action Replay Problem

The problem is that the games or the ds action replay game slot is unfunctional. If it is the AR, just start up the action replay and eject it. Then put the game in, and start playing. To enter codes, leave the AR in and enter the codes. after you enter codes, the AR will save atomaticly.
