There are Parental Controls for all things that use the wireless connectivity (i.e. Internet & Browser) and for DS Games (so he couldn't play a 18+ game for instance). See: http://www.nintendo.co.uk/NOE/en_GB/systems/media_11864.html for the 'How to' video.
We had a couple of ds games that were imports, having been purchased on e-bay, but the new DSi doesn't seem to like them very much and throws up an error on start-up. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks
I've only tried one game in my dsi so far, and it was an import game from the US that works fine. Are you confident that they are original copies and not pirate copies? Not accusing you of anything but you can get sold dodgy games in some countries passed off as originals (in this country too if you buy off ebay as has happened to me).
Thanks. I suppose they could be pirates, I'm a bit naive like that, although if they are pirates, then they are perfect in every way, no indication anywhere, even in game play that they are less than they shoudl be. I assumed as I bought them in good faith on ebay, they were just legitimate imports. I'm still a bit confused though as to why, even if they are pirates, they won't play on the new DSi. Oh, well, something to put down to experience, I suppose!
Hi I had the same problem with 2 games I had that were imports and have the end code USA (this code is on the box and the cartridge) - our DSi consoles are UKV as it says on the box and the new DSi s are region locked so we can only play games that have the UKV or EUR code which means they are UK PAL format. Nintendo have confirmed that they are region locked because of the internet access format being different from country to country. All our UKV and EUR games play just fine so pick the format that matches your DSi.
help... i cant get the web browser or the flipnote studio on my daughters white dsi, but it is on my sons light blue one. I purchased them both the same time on amazon. is it me or could there be a problem with the white dsi. thanks
