Got to your computer manufacturer's website. find the drivers that pertain specifically to your system. when you get to that drives/software page, first thing is see if your BIOS has an update. Check the BIOS update that is listed, if there is one listed, against the BIOS that is currently installed on your system. Check the date and version. it is simple to do. Then just go down, and download and install all of your necessary drivers. And each time you download and install a driver that asks you to restart your system, then restart it then. When your system comes back up, go back to your driver page and just continue this process. Make sure you install the latest drivers, according to date and version. An easy suggestion for you is once you get to your specific laptop drivers/software page, you can add this to your favorites page list. Then, when you are back from restarting each time you need to, your drivers/software page is easily found by just looking into your favorites page section. That will keep you from having to always put all the information back in to get to the drivers page.

Cd drive does not work

Maybe because you are just using a cd drive and your recovery disc is a dvd disc?
please reply so I can help you more.

If it is a dvd disc then you need to have a dvd drive to recognize it.

You can just borrow an external dvd drive from a friend to temporarily resolve your problem. :)

Format the memory card.
Create from the root a folder called "SYSTEM" and a folder called "NDS".
Copy the systemfiles into SYSTEM and the games with the .nds extension in the NDS folder.
That must working. If not, go to your R4 seller and ask a replacement.
