Hello and a question..

Hello... I'm new here and do the nintendo ds.. I just bought myself one on my birthday two days ago along with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. Trials and Tribulations.

Now I have a question.. probably a really stupid one.. But it seems my DS lite is stuck in military time?

Because I set the alarm to go off at 10:30 but it didn't go off this morning... so uh.. how do I switch it off of military time or is this completely normal for a system set in english?

i'm pretty sure you can't change it from military time :( i remember setting up my ds and being frustrated that you couldn't change that setting.

If you set it for Ten Thirty, whether it's in military time or standard, that's still ten thirty AM. So either your ds's internal clock is just wrong, or you didn't wake up to it.

Okay so I fiddled around with my DS alarm, to see how exactly to set it and how to hear it. When you set your alarm, you have to actually "set" it, not just punch in numbers. on the alarm screen, you'll see a button on the top right for turning the alarm on. After the alarm is set, pressing any buttons (other than L or R) or the touch screen will turn the alarm off. If you're not sure if you've set it correctly, it says at the bottom how much time is left until it goes off. Make sure your volume is up.
You may now close your DS.
When the alarm goes off, it will beep at you and get increasingly louder until you wake up and groggily open it and press a button or the touch screen.

I hope this helped! I suggest you test it first before you count on it to get you up for an important meeting or something ^__^
