    Hello All,

    Recently updated to 6.2.0-12E and now the 3DS isn't playing any standard ds games.

    It'll play 3DS games fine, but not normal DS Games.

    These aren't flashcards or anything, they are LEGIT DS Games.

    I know it's not the games, because they work fine in my Fiancee DS which is on 6.1.0-12E so it must be the 6.2.X firmware update that's done it.

    Any ideas?

    sounds like you buggered DS mode on the 3DS on 6.2.0-12

    does it recognize the games at all?

    have you ever used a flashcard on the console?

    How is it stopping them from working? Are they not being recognized, or are you getting the "An error has occurred..." black screen?

    Receiving the 'An Error has Occured` black screen.

    No flashcart has been used in this DS.

    sound like DS Mode settings been screwed by something then

    the way to fix a corruption of the DS Mode is to format the system,
    saves and downloads stored locally will be lost

    Just emailed Nintendo UK.

    Hopefully they can provide some insight into this.
