I have a DSI XL that when put in one of two games the erro message pops up: An error has occurred. Press and hold the power button to turn off and refer to the Nintendo DSI operations manual for help troubleshooting. I followed the manual and it did not work. It only happens on these two games. all other games work fine. They were bought new and used on the nintendo ds lite before this and worked fine. Any ideas?
Where did you purchase these two video games, eBay perhaps?
Unfortunately, but those video games may be counterfeit, as the DSi (and XL, 3DS) is able to detect those types of games and will not play them.
Which the DS and DS Lite do not have that ability to detect fake video games and is the likely reason why you can play them on your DS Lite but not on your DSi.
