3DS and Platinum compatibility problem?

    Hey there,

    I've tried inserting my Platinum cartridge into my 3DS, and I get the message 'there is nothing inserted in the game card slot ' on the home screen.

    It works fine on my DS Lite, so I'm confused.

    I also tried using the poketransfer on my Black 2 using the 3DS, and Platinum on the DS Lite. I was able to access the download and play, but then Platinum gives me the message that says it won't work...

    Any help on this would be nice thank you :)

    Dirty Cart? Check your Platinum Cart, it could have lost save data. I've lost my Diamond save due to dirt and damage.

    Is the same language as the Black 2 game?

    Fake carts will not allow you to transfer Pokémon out.

    Where did you buy the game from?

    It's possible that you have a pirated game.

    If the ds lite loads a ds game, but later ds models don't, since platinum is not dsi-enhanced(meaning jap versions will work regardless of model used to boot it up, meaning not a factor in terms of your problem), the solution is staring right in your face: unlicensed bootleg platinum in your possession when it shouldn't if you want inter-ds activity w/o troubles...

    I bought the game when it came out...so I can't remember where from.

    Is there any other way of seeing if it might be fake or not?

    I've been playing it fine on my DS Lite and DSi (which I don't have anymore) I only found the game a week ago.

    Could you upload a picture of the front and back of it? That might help us to see if it's real or not.
