Can't export your work, order the online versions instead

Summary: You CANNOT EXPORT your creations with this version of Art Academy!!! YOU CAN if you order the 2nd version(the one before this called Art Academy 2nd Semester) from the DSWare shop from the DS device itself.
Summary: Thank you for ruining my daughters Easter. We opened the game very excited to play and it wouldn't work. We changed the machine it was in, still wouldn't work. I read the back of the game and discovered the it says FOR SALE AND USE IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND ONLY.
Summary: This is the European version of the game, and is not compatible with the US Nintendo DS gaming consoles. Don't buy this unless you're from Europe!! Trying to return the game now with the seller, will update this post on the outcome of their customer service.
