The topic pretty much says it all. My 3DS did a system-update a couple of days ago, and since then, the DSiWare I had and my DS cards no longer run. They show up just fine in the menu. Pokemon Black2/White 2, Mario VS. Donkey Kong Minis March Again, and everything else not 3DS-exclusive has suddenly stopped working. I've tried finding troubleshooting topics and such, but everything either has a broken link, or is completely unhelpful.

I only got my 3DS back from Nintendo about a month ago because the L&R buttons shorted out. I will not be happy if I have to send it back into them again. :/

A friend of mine had the same problem. Just take out the DS game and reinsert it. Should work after a couple of times. At least it did for him..

Try cleaning the metal part of the game card with a Q-tip.

I don't mean flash carts, sadly. I mean my actual copies of games I have in physical form and legally paid downloads have stopped working. No DS cartridges, no DSiWare... Nothing 3DS exclusive. The icons load, but launching them just acts as though I'd initiated sleep mode.

*Nothing but 3DS exclusives. Virtual Console and downloaded 3DS games run fine.

Hm...I dunno. My system is fully updated and I haven't had any trouble playing DS games. Don't have any DSiWare games so I can't test that.

Can you name any other games that aren't working for you? I don't have any of the ones you mentioned.

I can confirm that my Black 2 works just fine, so I don't think it's the update.

When you do get it working, there's a Wi-Fi download for Deoxys going on until the 31st.

Pokemon Black1&2, White 1&2, Golden Sun Dark Dawn, Pokemon Soul silver& Platinum... Nothing. DSiWare affected includes Mario Vs. Donkey Kong Minis March Again and Super Mario Clock.

Physical and downloaded 3DS games and aps still fun fine.
