    Hi all, I bought and downloaded Sudoku from the DSiWare eShop but when I try to run it, white screen flashes and then it goes to the dark grey screen giving me the option to power off or go to the home screen.

    I've got a 2DS with original firmware 11.8.0-41E.

    I bought another DSiWare game and still have the same issue. I downloaded a 3DS demo and that works fine.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Some DSi Games will work in 3DS Mode, while some only in DS. Those that do not work in DS, Install the 3DS .cia version to use in 3DS Mode.

    Yeah but I bought it from the eshop so it should work fine. It works for everyone else. My 2DS has the original firmware anyway.
