    I have just upgraded my original DS to a DS-Lite and have configured my WiFi.

    But when I try the online games (i.e Tetris, Picross, etc) my online scores/rank have been reset.

    Clearly your rank is saved/based on your DS, rather than on the save slot on the game.

    Is there any way to migrate your scores, or do you just have to start again??

    Pop in a WFC game and go in the config. Click Options and click the last red button (Transfer Nintendo WFC [...]). Then follow the instructions. It'll ask you to connect the other DS and it will the WFC config and FCs. (worked on mine).

    ^ Start the above process on the OLD DS or all your data is gone. [​IMG]

    Hopefully you didn't trade the original DS in, I know people who have done that and lost all their WiFi stuff.

    cool! i didnt know that...

    will the transfer also keep your old FC the same, or will you still have a new one?

    There's a reason they tell you "Use this DS to play WiFi on this game from now on" [​IMG]
