Super Mario 64 DS not working on 3DS

Hey everyone, I was told to try posting it here because I might get more responses
I can't see why this would happen, just hoping for some help or suggestions

I bought Super Mario 64 DS earlier this year and it worked fine, my friend and my teacher own the game as well and all 3 of them worked fine.
it seems like after the most recent update for the 3ds it all of a sudden isn't working for 3ds anymore. not just my copy but all 3 of ours stopped working, we tried them on eachothers 3ds' as well.
just wondering if someone else has had this problem.
oh by the way, the 3ds regognises it's mario 64 ds on the menu but once you boot the game up it shows a black screen with white text saying
"An error has occured.
Press and hold the POWER Button
to turn the system off.
Please refer to the Operatioins
Manual for details."

thanks for reading

Maybe clean the contact points?

Might it be a pirated copy?

They are bootlegs.

Mine works fine. Did you happen to buy it on ebay from an hong kong or china based seller? If so you got duped.

thanks for the responses so far, I had a suspicion that they might be pirated versions, is there any way of telling from the cart?

Had this happen to me recently. After cleaning it, ejecting it, and hoping about 10 times it finally showed up. Then I played it for 10 minutes.
