    None of my DS games work on my 3DS. None of them work at all.
    All it shows:

    An error has occured.
    Hold down the POWER Button to
    turn off the power, then turn it on
    and try again.

    For help, visit support.nintendo.com.

    The 3DS ones work fine.

    Is there anything wrong with my 3DS?

    Have a good day.

    by 'DS games' do you mean flashcarts? If so, 3DS update 2.0.0-2 blocks flashcarts. Your 'game' is blocked because it's unofficial software.

    No. Not flashcarts. I mean real DS games.
    I already knew that the 3DS will block flashcarts and the only flashcart I have is a R4 for my DS Lite.

    Sounds like a bad console, time to RMA that bad boy.

    That's a good point. Almost all counterfeit games won't run on anything from DSi/XL to the 3DS. It's the reason you're able to spot pirated games on eBay very easily, as most of them have a warning that they'll only run on a DS phat/lite.

    I've tried a counterfeit game in my 3DS and the exact same error came up. I think it's very likely your games are all fakes.

    Check the back of your cartridges for a serial number. Most counterfeits don't have that number.
